Please 'HIT'!!!

Post by StuddJefferson » Fri Sep 10, 2010 1:48 pm

Hi All!!!
Please would as many of you as possible 'Hit' a song thats been done for Cancer Research, which is on You Tube.
I was diagnosed with Myloid Leukemia, and am still going through treatment. I wanted to give something back to the superb staff who have been treating me. A friend suggested I record an album with him, even though the only singing I do is in the bath,of some of my favourite country songs, which we've just about finished.
A local businessman in Cardiff has pledged 10p, everytime the song is 'hit'. The girl I did the song with is called Natasha Glean, and it was her who put it on You Tube. Its a cover of 'Thats the way love goes', by Merle Haggard & Jewel.
I hope you can help.
Thanks.
Jon.

I think this is the one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixglW_kCN7M
Please could you confirm it or not ?

Nice voice StudJ - you could have a career as a singer with a bit of practice.

Thanks Carole!! :D
I recorded the cd with a guy called Griff Steel.
Ive done six tracks altogether, including 2 'live' songs. They were recorded in local pubs, on karaoke nights!!
Griff also did six tracks, under protest, saying 'country music aint my thing'! Heathen!! He has stuff on spotify already, and has performed with bands in Cardiff.
Theres three duets also, including the track you've listened to.
The cd is'nt for 'sale', but people have been kind enough to donate £5 towards Cancer Research, & they get the cd.
Ive asked Griff if there is any way of putting the album on spotify, so fingers crossed!! It should all be ready by the end of Oct.
Thanks for your kind words, and I will do my best to get you the rest, so you can have a listen.
Jon.
