Band Aid producer teams up with Bath artists for charity single
To mark World Mental Health Day on 10 October, Stuart Bruce, Producer of Band Aid’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’, has been working with artists Sam Eason and the band littlemen, on a new single in aid of St Mungo’s and local charities in the west of England.
The single – More Than That – was written and recorded at NAM studios in Wiltshire in a matter of weeks, after the artists set themselves a challenge to release the song in time for World Mental Health Day, which is also World Homeless Day.
In addition, Sam Eason and littlemen will be performing at a one off gig – Music in Mind – at the Orchard Street Theatre in Bath on Friday 13 October.
Tickets for the gig are on sale now from brown paper tickets.
The More Than That single is on sale from Bandcamp and iTunes and costs 79p to download.
All proceeds will be equally split between two St Mungo’s projects New Hope and Hope Space, plus KS2 and the Bath Mind project Greenlinks @ the Potting Shed.
Helen Brian, Mental Health Move On Worker at St Mungo’s, said: “We are extremely grateful to Stuart, Sam and littlemen. These massively talented musicians have a huge local fan base and we are delighted that they are working with us to promote this amazing cause and to fundraise for vital mental health peer groups in Bath.”
