Based in Lakenheath, Suffolk, Wing Song are a duo featuring vocalist Linda Spencer and keyboard player and vocalist Sue Crowe. They performed ‘Saltwater’ at a concert last year with just piano and vocals and decided to record and release the song as they felt the message about climate change is still very poignant. ‘Saltwater’ was originally released in 1991 and 2016 by Julian Lennon who

co-wrote it with Leslie Spiro and Mark Spiro.

Right Said Fred who are a London-based English band formed by brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass in 1989. Their achievements include number 1 hits in 70 countries including one US number 1, one UK number 1, and a number 1 in Japan.

Simon Gross – AKA MR SHOWBIZ is set to release a Christmas charity single “Showbiz Christmas”, a song about the very best of Christmas – a real earworm, sold to raise money for Age UK.

Taking us back to a time when cheesy catchy pop was in the charts all year round “Showbiz Christmas” is evocative of the novelty party hits of Black Lace, the knowing wink high-camp of Right Said Fred with a children’s presenter style nod to Slade. All combining to make one of the catchiest

Christmas songs you’ve heard in years.
