The light coming off of the ambulance Casts blue shadows on the pavement wall While we're all standing like chess board pieces Waiting to enter the store Distance keep your distance Don't kiss your friends hello But I can't stop thinking about all the poor, sick, lonley souls Who are stuck on the tenth floor of the hospital And all the Doctors who haven't slept in weeks All fighting something that they cannot see And all the nurses who can't see their kids Distance keep your distance Don't kiss your friends hello But remember that this world is beautiful Remember that you're not alone, no We're all in this together Even though we have to keep apart So I'll send you my love from wherever I am Across sea and land to wherever you are Yes, we're all in this together Even though we have to keep apart So I'll send you my love from wherever I am Across sea and land to wherever you are Oh, oh, oh, oh we'll sing all together from inside of our homes Oh, oh, oh, oh and we'll keep singing until morning comes Yes, we're all in this together Even though we have to keep apart So I'll send you my love from wherever I am Across sea and land to wherever you are Yes, we're all in this together Even though we have to keep apart So I send you my love from wherever I am Across sea and land to wherever you are To wherever you are To wherever you are To wherever you are To wherever you are To wherever you are

about

I wrote "All in it Together" shortly after the COVID Lockdown began here in Italy after conversations with doctor & nurse friends of mine, and strangers in long queues outside of supermarkets. With such an overwhelming feeling of isolation, I wanted to bring a sense of togetherness and hope to people through music.

I posted a barebones video version of the song on social media and it got quite a lot of attention so I hatched an ambitious plan. I decided I wanted ALL proceeds from the song and accompanying video to go to the Musicians Union Hardship Fund and I then decided to get the community involved.

The result is a song sung by 34 people from around the UK and Europe and played by a 6 man virtual band. We have people from all walks of life -musicians, taxi drivers, carpenters, children, nurses, teachers and care home workers to name just a few - who have all come together in a time of distancing to lend their voices, artistic and musical expertise to help English musicians in need.

The 2 pieces of artwork used for the single cover are designed by 10 year old Francesca Hammond & American photographer Diane Powers. The mixing and mastering of song was also a pan European effort- it was mixed by a sound engineer in Barcelona, Spain and mastered by a mastering engineer in Bologna, Italy.

Included ONLY here on Bandcamp is the official version of the song, an instrumental and a karaoke version
