years Transplant Games will, for the first time, have its very own official anthem.
The track Reach was written by Bath based R & B recording artist Clyve and
fellow co writer Jon Birch (from Bath). The song is inspirational and uplifting and is
focused on how we can become stronger in ourselves and aim higher than you can sometimes
imagine even when the odds are against us, which is, of course, a tribute to all of the
incredible athletes taking part in the games." The track will be available for
download on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify and also released on CD format prior to the Games,
with all proceeds going to both the Transplant Uk and Donor Familes charities.
REACH PRESS RELEASE JULY 27 2010
The Bath born Soul/R&B artist Clyve has taken a break from finishing his forthcoming
album to co write with his music mentor Jon Birch, the Anthem for this year Transplant
Games, which is returning to Bath next month. The track is called Reach and it
is the first time the games has had an official anthem. Recently there was a slight
setback on the project , when the original recordings and mixes of Reach,
along with the rest of Clyves album were stolen from the studio. However I am glad
to say that everything is now back on track and ready for the release date in early
August. The anthem will be released for download on iTunes and other music websites and
also on CD format prior to the Games, with all proceeds going towards Transplant Sport Uk
and Donor Family Network Charity.
Clyve will launch and perform Reach for the first time at the Transplant Games
opening ceremony at the Bath Abbey on Thursday 19th August at 6.30pm, where he will be
reunited with Jazzi P, who previously worked and had chart success with Kylie Minogue and
DNA. He will also have the backing of the incredible Sarah Bull and the highly successful
Bath based Vocal Works Gospel Choir.
Clyve said Jon and I were really honoured to be asked by Loraine Morgan-Brinkhurst
MBE, to compose the first ever anthem for the games and I am also really excited about
performing at the Abbey with Jazzi and the Vocal Words Gospel Choir - it will be a
memorable evening and we are all hoping that Reach will raise several thousand
for the appropriate charities".
