Despite the lock down, a number of award-winning songwriters including many who have attended the retreats in recent years – including Graham Gouldman, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Mark Nevin, Robert Vincent and Kimmie Rhodes – came together under guidance from Chris Difford to write some incredible new songs inspired by the work of Hannah Grace Deller, an NHS nurse working on the front line. As well as being a paediatric matron Hannah is a talented photographer who’s extraordinary images documented her and her colleagues’ experiences throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
These songs have been recorded to form a new album, called Song Club, and the proceeds will raise money for The Royal College Of Nurses. The first song released, called ‘Working on the Frontline’, is simply amazing. Performed by the BAFTA-nominated actor and singer Jessie Buckley and her band ‘Jessie and The Leonards’, the song is a powerful representation of life on the NHS frontline.
