A new Lenny Xmas single

- and its all for charity 

For seventeen years, a family from South West London have been writing, recording and releasing their Christmas songs to raise money for charity. Now they’ve teamed up with legendary lounge singer Lenny Beige for their most funky festive offering yet.

“A Merry Lenny Christmas” was recored with Lenny  after I heard the family’s festive charity songs last year.

 

Now the The Screaming Jacksons supergroup have released the song to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust, a wonderful charity I have been associated with for a while now.

Every time someone listens to the song on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music or any digital music service, money goes to the charity. It’s that simple! A Merry Lenny Christmas is one of 17 songs, supporting 17 different charities on The Screaming Jacksons’ Festive Fa-La-La-La-La album which brings together the family’s home-made Christmas songs from the last 17 years.

This year’s song - A Merry Lenny Christmas - is a story of inclusion regardless of your religion. Beige said: “This is a time to celebrate peace, love, family and friends no matter what you believe. If you dig that, you’re going to dig this song.”

If you want to hear it just type in 'The Screaming Jacksons' into wherever you listen to / stream your music and there it is.

Xmas single co-written with Guy Chambers

I have written the lyrics for a special Christmas single for an artist known only as 'Trickster'. There are two versions as it's called 'Thank Fuck It's Christmas' so the clean version is 'Praise Be It's Christmas'.

It features the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra which makes is sound HUGE. Below is the video and if you download the single the proceeds will go to a variety of charitable causes.

The Voices Project 2

Last year, in an effort to learn how to use Logic Pro X I embarked on writing and producing a series of ambient tracks using various voices as my inspiration. So there was Richard Burton talking about alcoholism, there was a very swearing Ben Kingsley as Don Logan in Sexy Beast and there was a gloriously shouty Brian Blessed.

I knew I would do another and so I began to write and produce tracks at the end of last year and the beginning of 2022. This time round the voices include Nina Simone being very forthright and honest, John Lydon talking about Saville in about 1978, Bruce Lee being his beautiful Zen self, Quentin Crisp on his extraordinary life and a track made up of the Kilroy Silk intros from his BBC show in the 90s. Plus many more. 

As before the album is up on Bandcamp, alongside the first one, and is free to listen to or you can purchase and download it from £8. A lot of work went into it and I really hope you enjoy it. 

 

Lenny Beige YouTube Channel

During Lockdown, Lenny Beige was very busy presenting twice weekly shows which started life as a mixture of songs, gags and shout-outs to the viewers. By week 5 it was decided to make the Tuesday shows an interview-based format with a few songs, with the Friday night shows continuing as they had before. They started life being filmed on the phone streaming to Facebook Live and Instagram (when technology would allow) but we upgraded to a Mevo camera which is a dedicated streaming camera that acts like a TV gallery where you can cut from a wide to a close up shot and pan across the frame too. The Beige Family very kindly contributed their own money to buy this piece of kit to increase their viewing pleasure

The end result is a new YouTube Channel with content from some of thiose shows but with a whole load more vintage footage. There are classic TV appearances and interviews PLUS in the coming weeks the now salvaged BBC series Lenny Beige's Variety Pack.
