Morecambe and Wise classic backed by TV adverts set to make local Morecambe girl a star
‘Bring Me Sunshine released on August 24th’
It is potentially a dream come true for local Morecambe girl Ashleigh Wood, a dedicated Lancastrian, top golfer and native of idyllic seaside town Morecambe that a song she recorded that pays tribute to her hometown , has now been embraced by the local council to promote the town as a major seaside tourist haven. If this was not enough she has also been blessed by the fact that the classic track ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ made famous by Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise is also being featured on major TV adverts as well as a favourite of one of the key taste makers at the biggest radio station in the UK , Radio 2.
‘Bring Me Sunshine’ has been featured on adverts for the likes of Cadbury , Nescafe and P&O Cruises and is a regular on Radio 2’s Chris Evan’s Breakfast Show. It is an instantly recognisable classic and Ashleigh effortlessly manages to capture the spirit of the song by firmly putting her own stamp on it.
Ashleigh Wood’s dedication to Morecambe and her own heritage has endeared her to the local populace and garnered her approval from BBC Radio Lancashire and other regional radio stations across the North West.
Ashleigh was invited to sing ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ at the Eric Morecambe Tribute Dinner at the Globe Arena, the home of Morecambe FC. The audience and organisers were so impressed by her performance that she has been invited to sing the track again at Morecambe FC’s opening game. This is a great opportunity for Ashleigh as it ties in her two main passions; music and sport.
The track itself is a direct reflection of British summertime; light, sunny and full of joy. It is a perfect song to enjoy blasting through your car speakers, barbequing or simply lounging outside and making the most of the somewhat unpredictable British weather, and Ashleigh truly makes the song her own. The wonderful Morecambe band even accompany Ashleigh in the video! Just try and listen to it without wanting to do the hopping routine the legendary comedians made famous on their classic shows. Summer is here and Ashleigh Wood is set to truly bring it sunshine, whatever the weather.
‘Bring Me Sunshine will be available from August 24th’
