New Single “Something Restless” has quite the history and now a wonderful objective.
All proceeds to sales of the “Something Restless” on ALL streaming services will go to Pathstone Mental Health.
This idea has been on my mind for some time after my previous
Written and recorded in a rustic state a few years ago about my own battles with anxiety and my own mental health, the song has now taking on a new life thanks to one and only Matt Weaver.
Matt and I have been playing together for a few years now and he was drawn to “Something Restless” while performing it live at shows for a number of reasons.
In the summer of 2020, amidst the pandemic, Matt mentioned he had some ideas for the song and this lead to a number of parts being altered and expanded to what you see now. Being new to the recording process myself, there were ups and downs throughout the process but we are very proud of the final product and love that it’s being used for the cause of raising awareness and funds for mental health.
Again a huge thanks to Johnny Dee for his masterful mastering of the song and Troy Mullins (see Behind the ARTWORK blog post) for his artwork and involvement in the video. Thanks to my No. 1 friend, fan and all round good dude, Derek Judd, for his help in shooting the video.
