We love nature. We write songs for the planet and invite everyone to sing them with us. Profits from ‘SOS from the Kids’ go to environmental causes to help nature and wildlife. 

SOS from the Kids formed when brothers Sim and Noah Macaulay got together with their cousin, Coen Baines, and close friends to record, ‘SOS from the Kids’. Sim, aged 12, had written the song with his mum, Dorry Macaulay, after he watched David Attenborough's 'Climate Change -The Facts'.

The song started as a way to channel their family's feelings of despondency into something proactive, something that has hope and that other people could join them in.

 

Sim and his small troupe first performed the song in July 2019 to politicians. They busked on the street outside the Winchester council chambers, attracting a crowd of MP’s and policy makers who were gathering to debate and vote on climate issues.Word spread fast and before long hundreds of kids joined the troupe to sing at September’s ‘Global Youth Strike for Climate’ at Parliament Square in London.

We have been sent some beautiful versions of children around the world singing 'SOS from the Kid's'. If you want us to share a video you have done, just send it to sosfromthekids@gmail.com.

'SOS from the kid's' versions from around the world

The day before the Covid-19 lockdown, Sim met with his uncle, Coen's father, Ollie baines and helped write, 'Stand as one', a song about the need to heal our planet and care for each other.

The song was then completed during the lockdown, working remotely, with the video made using zoom.

'Stand as One' is dedicated to all those on the front lines as the world is swept by the Covid-19 pandemic. Profits go to 'NHS Charities Together' & 'Masks for NHS Heroes'

Special thanks to our local parish church St Mary's for their general encouragement and for letting us use their building to work on new songs together.
