A NEW single by local singer-songwriter Chris Gray is set to boost the coffers of the Joey Dunlop Foundation.
The new release, Eyes On Your Pride, has been released to coincide with this year’s TT festival.
The charity’s committee has paid tribute to Chris and his generosity in allowing the song to be used in this way.
A spokesperson said: ‘To have Chris assist the foundation is really appreciated. We are sure the single will be a hit with many of our supporters, and hopefully many more people who may not be aware of the Joey Dunlop Foundation and the work we do.’
The Joey Dunlop Foundation was established more than 10 years ago, leading to the Manx-registered charity owning and running a facility on Braddan Bridge which is able to offer disabled people fully-accessible self-catering holiday accommodation.
The three apartments at Braddan Bridge House are used year-round by many visitors and, the charity claims, represent a fitting tribute to a truly great motorcycle racer and humanitarian.
The track itself, Eyes On Your Pride, was made entirely in the Isle of Man, and recorded at Factory Lane Studios in Peel. The following people made it possible: Bruce Baker and Kevin Quirk (Joey Dunlop Foundation), Lee Morgan (Factory Lane Studios), Simon Campbell (guitarist and producer), Anglin Buttimore (keyboards), Mike Divers (saxophone) and Kevin Madigan (Big Small Fish Music Management).
The single is available to buy online at the iTunes store – search Joey Dunlop Foundation or Eyes On Your Pride – with all proceeds being donated to the Joey Dunlop Foundation. The song is also available from Amazon and HMV.
