Dermot Lambert, former front man with acclaimed Irish band Blink will release the first single from his upcoming solo album “Tiny” to help kick-start the new Irish green ribbon campaign to get people talking about mental health.
Pre-order ‘Hey Sean’ on iTunes before its official release on Friday 17th May.
All funds raised by the single will go towards making the month of May every year synonymous with challenging the stigma of mental health problems and lay groundwork for real and lasting change in Irish attitudes and behaviours to mental health www.greenribbon.ie
“Hey Sean” was written by Dermot Lambert, produced by Dermot Lambert & Barry Campbell and is on release from Garage Records.
Releasing the single as part of this movement to encourage discussion of mental health, Dermot Lambert said:
“A few years ago my wife Clara and I put on a show called ‘Imagine’in conjunction with the organisation Shine which featured some artists I was working with, including The Script. and the event raised such awareness to this issue, that we felt we had helped bring other voices to a conversation which had just begun and needed to continue.’
”There aren’t many things as personal in life as music, and as a writer I don’t know how much music I will ever write, but I am very pleased and honoured to commit Hey Sean – which is a particularly special song to me – to Green Ribbon campaign”
