Drumming Up Hope - The Album
Drumming Up Hope is an annual music event that takes place in Essex, UK and features some of the best fresh, new, independent and unsigned talent as well as a sprinkling of well known, well loved artists!
The Drumming Up Hope Festival was established in memory of drummer Michael Bettell who in September 2003, died aged only 41 of a brain tumour. ALL profits from this recording go to the oncology ward at the hospital where he was cared for.
The 2005 event sees performances from some 30+ artists during the two day event and many of these artists are featured on this release.
Including acts such as Jane (one of the UK''s highest selling independent artists) , Maria Nayler (who enjoyed chart success with Robert Miles with the single ''One and One''), singer songwriters Phil Burdett and Vince Freeman, old favourites Eddie and The Hot Rods and Celtic folk rockers The Marshmen plus many others - this album is a great opportunity to sample a selection of some of the best new writers and singers around ...
Michael''s son and step son have also contributed a track each.
From wistful ballads and indie pop to get up and groove dance numbers, there''s something to appeal to everyone on this taster of exciting new music ...
When you buy this album, not only will you discover some great, unmanufactured artists but you''ll be supporting a very worthy charity too!
