MOTHER ROAD mastermind and ex-SOUL DOCTOR guitarist Chris Lyne started a charity project for dogs in distress. His project is called CHRIS LYNE & FRIENDS and we all would be very happy if you support it and spread the word. But now we let Chris do the talking:
“It is not a secret that I am a big animal lover, especially dogs. I have had the idea of this project maybe one year ago. CHRIS LYNE & FRIENDS is a charity project that holds me dear to my heart! A charity project for dogs in distress! I wanted to record a song and donate all money earned!
For me there was only one song to choose, THE WEIGHT, a cover song by the Canadian-American group THE BAND, that was released in 1968. In my opinion it’s one of the best and timeless songs ever! So I started to ask friends to join me to record THE WEIGHT. And I must tell you, I’m so proud and happy, that I found so many great artists joining me and the project. They all are my friends and musicians I really value. They made this song to a monster and it’s my pleasure to introduce you to my fellow musicians: On lead vocals Grant Stevens, Dorrey Lin Lyles, Rob Lamothe and Andrea Porten. Stef E and Gary Schmalzl added some great acoustic and electric guitar parts, Jens Skwirblies on Hammond Organ, Barry Sparks on bass plus Mike Esnil on drums. After all of these great recording sessions, it was a pleasure to mix this wonderful piece of music!
The release will be on November 4th, 2022 and the song will only be available in digital format. And I guarantee all income will be donated!”
Stay tuned for more!!!
