Lemonade Marinade release single for Mindspace Mayo

Staying In

GROOVY GUY Irish musician and vocalist Ger Eaton, known for his retro style, is the latest addition to the Lemonade Marinade line-up.


Lemonade Marinade’s latest single, ‘Yes, Love Has Found You Here’, is their fifth and final single from their self-titled EP. The single was released on June 4, and the EP was released last Thursday.
The Irish collective is delighted to add vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and Irish music-scene veteran Ger Eaton to their ever-evolving line up. Think Scott Walker and Glen Campbell, and you will find him somewhere in between. His last release, ‘Hollow’, is still enjoying plenty of airplay in Ireland – and he’s a much-sought-after musician. Previous collaborations have included The Pale, Mundy and Jack Lukeman.
Following up on the EP’s four earlier releases – ‘Paradise Bay’, ‘Brilliant’, ‘It’s Good To See’ and ‘Venus and Me’ – ‘Yes, Love Has Found Your Here’ is another soothingly warm piece of music, sung with tenderness and care by Ger, and layered with delightful harmonies from the talents of Gillian Tuite, Janet Henry and Cathryn Craig.
The rest of the band consists of Nick Scott (Gilbert O’Sullivan, Mary Black) on double bass, Colin Henry on dobro, Fintan Hanley (Vickers Vimy) on electric guitar and mandolin, Brian McAteer (Phil Coulter, Alisdair Frazer) on strings and Brian Willoughby (Strawbs, Mary Hopkin) on electric guitar.
Once again, all proceeds from the single will go to a mental health charity. This time, the chosen charity is Mindspace Mayo, a free and confidential support service that promotes young people’s mental health and wellbeing. It’s aim is to support young people aged 15-25 who are going through a difficult time to ensure they get the support they need.
All the songs in this project relate lyrically to the chosen charities, conveying a message of hope. The lyrics of ‘Yes, Love has Found You Here’ express the need to stay close to who and what you love most, remembering how love has brought you to where you are now. It is written by Westport-based songwriter and producer David Dee Moore, whose career has included collaborations with such artists as Niamh Parsons (3 albums), Steve Wickham (songwriting), the legendary Liam Clancy (Late Late Show), Brian Kennedy (TV and recording), Juliet Turner (performing) and Jerry Fish (writing and performing) to name but a few.
The track was mixed at the Production Suite Dublin by Chris O’Brien and Graham Murphy, and mastered by Richard Dowling, Wav Mastering, Limerick.
