Local Family Business Man Launches Second Music Album CD

Wyke Farms’ Chairman releases second album in time for Christmas

Somerset, UK – 16th December 2013 – John Clothier, Chairman of Bruton-based company Wyke Farms, has taken a break from family farming and released his second music album this week: ‘Dream a little Dream’. This follows on from the success of his first album ‘Chasing The Rainbow’, released in October last year, which rose over £1,000 for the SAVE THE CHILDREN CHARITY.

‘Dream a little Dream’ includes ten cover versions of popular songs from the 1960’s and 70’s including Got the World on a String, Dream a little Dream of Me, Coward of the County and Take It Easy. John has been a keen singer and music fan for as far back as he can remember.

The motivation to work on a second album was spurred on by the warm enthusiasm he received for his first CD from local residents. John Clothier says: “It has been a real pleasure to work on this second album. I am touched by all the positive feedback I have had to the first CD. Hopefully we will be able to raise more funds for SAVE THE CHILDREN CHARITY again this year.

The ‘Dream a little Dream’ album is available on line on iTunes and also from the Wyke Farms shop in Wyke Champflower and other local stockists. The CD is priced at £5 with £1 from every sale going to the SAVE THE CHILDREN CHARITY.
