Song for CHUF – 'What We Do'

Libby and her guitarLibby is a third year Performance (BA hons) student at Northumbria University.
She decided to do a song project as one of her final year modules with the hope to develop and progress her song writing and singing skills.

After meeting Ivan Hollingsworth as a result of his intense training and fundraising activities for CHUF, Libby became very inspired by Ivan and everyone involved in the charity. She decided to focus her song project around CHUF and hopes to raise some funds and awareness.

She worked alongside Isaac Parker at 'My sisters playlist studios' to produce a heartening song and effective video. Also involved in the co-writing was pianist Lucy Bewely and drummer Ryan Grey, who she would all like to thank a lot for their time and skills.
