‘Dear Dave’ – a single in aid of Young Minds

Released today on LOUD WOMEN Records … ‘Dear Dave’ by May Dawnay. We have recorded this song in tribute to its co-writer Rachel Finke, who sadly took her own life in January 2017. Proceeds from sales will be donated to Young Minds, a charity which addresses young people and mental health. Download the track from our Bandcamp.

May says: “We wrote this song as a protest against the Tory government at the time, and to give hope to the next generation – to show that if we stand together we can overcome oppressors like them.”

Huge thanks to: Keith Top of the Pops being a total legend, and for making the recording possible; Kate Dornan, for donating her perfect guitar and piano-playing skills; and Alex Booth for top-class audio help throughout.
