Music & Songwriting
Richard French of More Music in Morecambe has been coming to the centre over the past twelve months to run sessions as part of the activities programme. As a result several of the service users have composed songs and recorded them at the More Music in Morecambe studios.
Two songs were composed specially for "Ebenezer Dealer” – you can hear them here. The lyrics are a collaborative effort from service users taking part in the music sessions and are sung by Gary Brennan aka Spider; the music is composed by Frenchie in collaboration with the service users and played by Frenchie and other staff at More Music in Morecambe. The recording was engineered by Leroy Lupton.
We have recently been concentrating on singing in the music sessions and have a wide ranging repertoire covering blues, country, soul, rock and pop. We are unlikely to win any talent competitions but all agree that singing makes you feel fantastic and that anyone can join in.
