Whispering Bob’s All Stars + ELLES BAILEY — Stand By Me

The “plum-peach” voiced, Bristol based, award-winning English singer-songwriter ELLES BAILEY has asked for your support for a fabulous music project that will help our domestic musicians keep afloat during these troubled times.

Bob Harris
The song, said to be Harris’s favorite, comes as “Whispering” Bob celebrates 50 years in broadcasting…
She plans to perform a very special charity single with a fantastic line-up of artists brought together one-time for an excellent cause. Proceeds from the ‘Stand By Me’ single will assist musicians in the nervous months that lay ahead…

The single, a cover of Ben E. King’s classic will be recorded by Whispering Bob’s All Stars to raise money in support of musicians whose incomes have been hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

The song, said to be Harris’s favorite, comes as “Whispering” Bob celebrates 50 years in broadcasting.

Artists confirmed so far include: Paul Rodgers, Mark Knopfler, P.P. Arnold, Julian Lennon, Jimmie Allen, Peter Frampton, Mica Paris, Rick Wakeman, Richard Thompson, Beth Nielsen Chapman, The Shires, Ward Thomas, Duane Eddy and yours truly...” she says.

The musicians [who have] chosen to be a part of this incredible project reflect Bob’s own career in music, from rock legends to new and emerging country artists… Bob has handpicked every artist to take part in this special 50th-anniversary recording.”

As Bob and Under the Apple Tree (a.k.a. UTAT) (who are organising the Gofundme.com fundraiser) put it: “With income streams so badly affected by Covid-19, we are hoping this recording will generate sufficient revenue to benefit our charity partner Help Musicians – a charity that does magnificent work in helping musicians survive in times of difficulty.”

In these unprecedented times for the music industry, their work is more important than ever...”

Elles Bailey added: “Bob Harris has been a huge support of my musical journey and I’m honoured to have been asked to be a part of this project along side this all-star cast. Totally bowled over!
