Ince and the Sailors’ Society

Last year shipping law firm Ince partnered with global maritime welfare charity Sailors’ Society, one of the largest seafarers’ support charities in the world, to raise awareness for the plight of seafarers. They released the song From The Sea I’ll Come Home by Love Street, a track I produced. Dubbed the “key workers of the sea”, seafarers are particularly exposed to the effects of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Sailing

Earlier this year a new project was set in motion to further the cause. I have produced, mixed and mastered a brand new recording of Rod Stewart’s “Sailing”. Musicians from Ince have recorded the backing track, then a virtual global choir and band has had entries and interest from Canada, the Philippines and the UK to Hong Kong, Nigeria, Singapore and Chile. This time Ince is collaborating with Royal Museums Greenwich, and four of the leading maritime charities (Stella Maris, Sailors’ Society, The Mission to Seafarers and The Seafarers’ Charity) with support from the UK and International Chambers of Shipping as well as from many others from across the maritime industries to make this a success.

Putting it all together

All of the audio has been compiled, edited, mixed and mastered by me at Manor Gardens Studio in Devon. The track will be released on 25th June 2021, accompanied by a video directed by award winning film director Athena Xenidou.
