Dr Gillyanne Kayes & Jeremy Fisher chat with another of their own #LockdownHeroes, James Sills. James is a passionate choral leader, the founder of The Sofa Singers, and the author of Do Sing.
James shares how Sofa Singers ran from a quirky idea to international recognition (almost overnight), why singing together is vital for our wellbeing, and how his background shaped his view of music as an everyday essential.
Do Sing is available in paperback, ebook and audiobook formats from the DoBook Company https://thedobook.co/products/do-sing-reclaim-your-voice-find-your-singing-tribe
