REACH – The Transplant Games Anthem.

Bath Transplant Games Logo

This years Transplant Games will, for the first time, have it’s 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 Clyve’s 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".
