Known as one quarter of experimental chamber collective Collectress, and regular collaborator with the likes of Radiohead’s Philip Selway, Patrick Wolf, The Penguin Cafe, contemporary dance company Rambert and many more, London based multi-instrumentalist and performer-composer Quinta is today releasing a benefit single called ‘The Nurse’s Song’. Written as a tribute to the frontline workers immensely affected by the covid19 pandemic, ‘The Nurse’s Song’ was “inspired by a news story describing the profound compassion shown by a nurse to loved ones not allowed to be present at the bedside of a dying Covid19 patient”, as Quinta described. Nursing staff are playing a vital role providing comfort and support to patients in their final moments and also to their relatives.
‘The Nurse’s Song’ is out today coincing with Bandcamp Friday and all proceeds will be donated to the Cavell Nurses’ Trust, a UK charity that supports nurses, midwives and healthcare workers experiencing personal and financial hardship. The Trust has seen a 175% increase in help requested by nursing and midwifery professionals compared to the same period last year.
Head over to Quinta’a bandcamp to hear the poignantly beautiful and powerful ‘The Nurse’s Song’ and contribute if you can.
