Musicians wanted for Erick Maina's tribute album
by Holly Rummens

A COMMUNITY centre in Anfield are appealing for teenage musicians and bands to feature on a new CD to help raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care in Liverpool.

Liverpool Lighthouse on Oakfield Road, are supporting the fundraising campaign set up in memory of Erick Maina, which has already raised more than £3,000 since being launched, following the 15 year olds death in November last year.

Liverpool Lighthouse is the UK's first urban gospel arts centre which has been helping to support hundreds of disadvantaged young people and provide skills training for adults since opening in 1998.

Matt Moreton from Liverpool Lighthouse said: “Erick loved music and supporting people and had a particular passion for supporting Marie Curie and we wanted to reflect this whilst giving young people a chance to develop their own skills and experiences in the music industry.

”Musicians and bands of all styles and abilities are welcome to take part. We will make rehearsal space available so they can prepare themselves for their time in the recording studio.“

The CD will be recorded in the Lighthouse Studio Project recording studio during the week beginning April 13, with a recording schedule being finalised during the rehearsal week.

The Lighthouse Studio Project (LSP) is funded by Youth Music, a national charity which gives young people the opportunity to make music, helping them to overcome the challenges they face in their lives.

Anyone wanting to take part is invited to an open event on Wednesday April 8 at 4pm which will be a chance for them to showcase their music, find out more about the project, and sign up for the project.

For more information people can email with the subject line ”charity CD“ or call 0151 476 2342 or just turn up on April 8.

Anyone wishing to donate to the fund in memory of Erick Maina can do so directly via a special just giving page
