Podcast: Sing for Seafarers - In Conversation with Julian Clark

In the latest episode of The Maritime Podcast, Professional musician turned lawyer Julian Clark explains how he brought together a 60-piece virtual choir to cover Rod Stewart’s Sailing, in honour of recognising every seafarer as a keyworker and to ensure that they are appreciated for their role in enabling global supply chains.

“Seafarers must be recognised as ‘key workers’ and given priority access to Covid-19 vaccines,” comments Julian, Senior Partner at Ince, to Seatrade Maritime News Editor, Marcus Hand. 

In the episode Julian explains to Marcus the importance of recognising seafarers as key workers, so that they can access vaccines which will enable them to return home to see their families and loved ones. You can listen to the podcast in the player above.

“I have a passion for the rights and welfare of seafarers,” explains Julian Clark, Head Partner, Ince. “If it wasn't for seafarers, none of us would have a job, there'd be nothing on the shelves, and we wouldn't be able to have our clothes or our food or our fuel.  

Marcus asks Julian about the challenge behind orchestrating a 60-piece choir and charity single, and how both his professional career spanning musician to lawyer at Ince connected him to multi-platinum record producer George Shilling.

All proceeds raised from the release will directly support seafarer wellness initiatives led by Stella Maris, Sailor’s Society, The Seafarers Charity, and the Mission to Seafarers. Through the Sing for Seafarers campaign, the collaboration across shipping has helped to raise the voice of the 1.7 million seafarers who ensure that global trade moves smoothly.
