UPDATE: A huge thank you to everyone who donated to our NHS Coronavirus Appeal (In Another World). We exceded our target and raised a total of £3005.
We are now running an appeal to raise money to help homeless people in the UK
Covid is causing huge suffering right now, but being homeless while the pandemic is raging is a special kind of awful. If you live on the street there’s often no shelter and, if you catch the virus, there may be no friends and family riding to the rescue.
We are The Spiderhawks, a group of musicians, who want to help those who are struggling during this not-so-festive season. We’ve recorded a charity Christmas single called Holy Joe. Click on the video to listen to the song. If you like it, you can watch again on YouTube. It will soon be available on Spotify to add to your Spotify playlist, watch this space.
If you could donate even a small amount of money, the hero of our song, Joe Monroe, would be extremely grateful as would the many other Joes and Janes who are out on the street right now. All money raised will be given to a selection of established homeless charities.
HOLY JOE was written by Jim Preen (lyrics), and Simon Webb (music) as a Christmas song to raise money for the homeless.
It is performed by THE SPIDERHAWKS:
Robert Hart – Vocals , Simon Webb – Keyboards, Jay Stapley – Guitars , John Gordon – Bass, John Trotter – Drums, Al Stewart – Sax , Pete Jagger – Blues Harp , Lynda Hayes & Steve Stapley – Backing Vocals .
The HOLY JOE lead vocals were recorded by Stephen Smith at Room With A View Studio, Hampshire, the band recorded themselves in their own studios, the song was mixed by Simon Webb at SF Studio, Suffolk, and mastered by Martin Russell at The Music Barn, Gloucestershire.
The video was created by Jim Preen & Simon Webb. The homeless photographs are used by kind permission of Depositphotos, and the band footage is by the musicians themselves.
Holy Joe will shortly be available in all reputable musical outlets including Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, CD Baby, & Deezer.
