Errol Sammut, award-winning songwriter and front man of the band Airport Impressions has just released "Burton's Song” to aid in Autism awareness, with 100% of the proceeds from sales to go to autism charities worldwide. This special track was inspired by Errol’s nephew, Burton, who has Asperger’s Syndrome, a condition on the Autism spectrum. Errol wants the song to be a message of hope, courage, compassion and perseverance for those whose lives are affected, directly or indirectly, by autism and is using his popularity and music to raise both awareness and money for the cause. There has been quite a response to the song by fans and media alike with BBC Norfolk presenter Keith Greentree saying “It's a great track and well worthy of an outing on my show, for all the right reasons!”
Errol premiered “Burton’s Song” live on March 31, at The Marigold Foundation, Autism Speaks, and Autism Europe’s “Light it Up Blue” campaign in aid of the Association of Parents of Children with Autism. The song is available on most digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify. with 100% of the proceeds benefiting autism charities worldwide. Errol has also partnered with Play It Forward - Music for a Cause, a non-profit organization with the mission of empowering musicians and fans to make the world a better place. Autism charities can link to Play It Forward to receive proceeds from the sales of the song from a unique link directly on the charity’s website. Play it Forward does not keep any portion of the sale.
“Burton’s Song” touches on both the heartache of the disorder and a never-give-up attitude; with always hope for better treatment. The lyrics were inspired by the way Burton sees the world and are reflected in this passionate, haunting and thought-provoking composition.
"While I sat jamming away on an acoustic at my parent's apartment, Burton suddenly turned his attention entirely to me, something that had never happened before. He came over slowly and started humming and also tried strumming the guitar as I played away. It was the birth of the hook that made the song, so I wrote the lyrics to signify a moment and named it “Burton's Song”. It is his song completely,” said Errol.
