Southport born Dave Green features on M:89 Records Lost Songs compilation Album

THE Lost Songs campaign aims to seek out the very best songs that have been written, but never recorded. The album was recorded at Metropolis Studios where an average of 50% of the UK's Top 40 Chart is recorded, mixed or mastered, and will be released on M:89 Records. As innovators in the music business, always seeking out the freshest talent, M:89 Records is extremely proud to be supporting this campaign and bringing these 'lost songs' to the forefront of the music industry and accessible for music lovers to hear and buy.

The brainchild of Ticking Tree's songwriter 'ADMAN,' Lost Songs is there to find the John Lennons, Adeles and Freddie Mercurys that are hidden and have so far gone unnoticed. Both Adele and Mercury have recorded at Metropolis, the world's largest independent recording complex, but the facility also places high priority on supporting the developing artists of the future. As Tony Visconti pointed out in his keynote speech at this year's SXSW Festival, "The next David Bowie is out there, but not getting a shot", and this why M:89 Records has decided to back this campaign, to find the next David Bowie or Amy Winehouse and give him/her that shot.

"I've been thinking for a while that there must be a plethora of beautiful songs that have been carefully written and crafted, but have never seen the light of day. They are drifting, lost. We believe that out there, somewhere, just waiting to be found, are songs like Lennon's Imagine, Adele's Someone Like You, Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud, and so on. That is what inspired the Lost Songs project: we want to find them! It really could be that one day, when listening to music on the radio, people will be saying, "Did you know, that was once a Lost Song?" said ADMAN.

Always musically minded and in complete awe of music's power over people emotionally and spiritually, Dave Green's main ambition is to produce an amazing album, alongside dipping his toes into the world of publishing and sync. Having performed as Ray Davies support act at Colston Hall previously, Dave longs to play more amazing venues. Born in Southport and now living in Bristol, Dave's 'Lost Song' 'On My Mind' was written about a partner who had previously made a leap of faith to move to Scotland with him having only known him for twelve days. Soon realising she wasn't a fan of British weather, the relationship didn't last long and Dave decided to write a song about the experience. With influences ranging from 80s pop to deep blues, Dave likes anything with originality musically.

This year's track list has now been finalised ahead of the album's release on 3 June 2016 and is as follows:-

Give You The Night - Lily.
You're The One On My Mind - Adam Pickard.
Your Dreams Are Not Your Own - Scott McMahon.
Selectric - Tasha Jane Bishop.
On Your Mind - David Green.
Everyday - Gustin.
Falling Down - Sam Dawson.
