Just a handful of the incredibly inspiring people I’ve had the honour of spending the week with. The Hawaii Songwriting Festival is one of the most special events I’ve been a part of and I’m leaving the big island right now with a heavy but very full heart. What a special place, filled with very special people.
In the early hours of the first morning of 2015, my good friend and extremely talented musician Matthew Cogley tragically lost his internal battle to mental illness. His decision to take his own life left many of us devastated, confused and heartbroken. I had no idea he was suffering. Mental illness can be a silent killer, and is a condition I myself have dealt with on and off my whole life. After Matt’s death, some friends of ours started www.wearehummingbirdhealth.com, a non-profit that provides people with the tools to recognise when someone around them is suffering. Using the power of music, and an online training course, they are trying to educate people so they can make a positive impact on the lives of people in pain. Please check them out, and if you can, make a donation or buy one of these shirts (the back is beautiful) ✌🏻
