Waterboys’ Brother Launches Livestream


The Waterboys’ Brother Paul Brown has launched Playing It Forward.

This is a new live-stream series of collaborations with musicians featuring Brother Paul Brown on keyboards, the Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford and Robert Plant’s Band of Joy drummer.

The lead singer is Wendy Moten and this is one stormer of a blues tune. It’s called Hope for Everyone and the keyboardist will donate proceeds to the MusiCares’ COVID-19 Relief Fund which aids music-industry members during the pandemic.

“At the end of the day, it serves as such a beautiful way to keep us all engaged and writing new music together from a distance, while helping MusiCares help so many other musicians and artists who have lost gigs, tours, and sessions due to COVID-19,” Brown says.

“Through my own journey,” he added, “I’ve come to believe that sometimes an inescapable tragedy can turn our journey towards a magical new destiny that inspires us to create brand-new beauty for the good of helping one another.”
