A Merseyside musician has returned to the airwaves to tell listeners how he's singing for Clatterbridge once again.

Last year, Matt told Steve Evans how he had raised money for the charity by dedicating a track to his father in law who was treatd at the cancer centre.

However, he has gone one better for 2014.

Matt has teamed up with artists from across the world to produce the fund-raising album Love & Hope, Forever.

"I was amazed after Christmas to suddenly receive emails from other artists... who were so excited and impressed by the concept of doign a single for the hosital that they wanted to donate their own songs and pieces of music to add to this project." - Musician Matt Baker

Some of the artists on the 13 track album include John Styles (Holland), Ged Hodkinson (Wales), Andreas Hoffman, Ralf Reichelt (both Germany), Rebekah Vesey (America), and Deborah Henriksson (Sweden).

You can hear the full interview and some of the tracks below

 

They and others are planning already for next year with a live gig and even more artists.

You can make a donation by going to Matt's Just Giving page and can download the album at iTunes and Amazon.
