Justice 4 Harry - Requiem For A Soldier

PRESS RELEASE: J4H – Requiem For A Soldier – Single release June 5th 2020

With lockdowns starting to be lifted around the world, many families can’t wait to be reunited with their loved ones. For one family in particular this will never happen.

Harry Dunn’s life was cut short tragically on 27 August 2019. Aged 19 years old, doing what he loved best, out riding his motorbike, he was struck and killed by a car being driven by Anne Sacoolas from the US who was driving on the wrong side of the road near RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire. She fled the country claiming diplomatic immunity, in an attempt to evade prosecution. The British authorities are demanding her return and have sought her extradition. A worldwide alert has been sent out to police forces to locate, arrest and return her to the UK. She is now officially a fugitive on the run.

As Harry lay dying in hospital his mum, Charlotte, promised him that she would campaign for justice. She, along with the family, continue in this struggle. It has neither been easy or straightforward.

Two of Harry’s brothers, Ciaran and Michael, have stepped up to record a beautiful song in Harry’s memory, a tribute to their brother, to help raise money for a new foundation in Harry’s name. No family should ever go through what they have been through and monies raised through the song will enable them to help others who may find themselves in this awful situation, bereaved, with right on their side, but without the financial means to fight for justice.

Steve Hogarth, lead singer of Marillion and godfather to the children of the Dunn Family Spokesman, Radd Seiger, offered the band’s studio to the brothers to record the song shortly before lockdown in the UK began. Steve also plays piano on the track. The song has been produced by Michael Hunter and will be available from June 5th in worldwide digital download and streaming stores.
