ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sixth form Music Technology students in St Louis Grammar School, Kilkeel have recorded and produced a song to raise money and awareness for a local charity, “Mind Your Mate and Yourself.” As part of a Music Technology project, students decided to record and produce a charity single to help raise money and awareness of mental health issues that affect so many people.

The charity that was chosen was a local charity “MyMy”, which is a voluntary and community sector counselling organisation with extensive experience in suicide prevention and intervention. “MyMy” supports families and communities dealing with various health issues as well as providing services that will help support individuals struggling with bereavement, self-harming, relationships problems, bullying, mental/ physical health and financial problems. Very few communities are isolated from these problems and for some people experiencing such issues, they can often find aspects of their every-day life overwhelming.

The album are featrures an original song called “Sleep” written and performed by two Year 14 students Rachel Taylor and Aaron McAnulty. The song was produced and performed by Music Technology students under the guidance of their teacher Mr Brown. Both students are delighted to use the song to raise awareness for this vital and worthy charity.

Rachel Taylor and Aaron McAnulty wrote and performed the song “Sleep” whose lyrics are linked to mental health issues - particularly depression. “This is an issue that many young people deal with on a daily basis and we think it is an important issue to highlight”, Rachel said. “The lyrics of the song depict how judgemental our society has become and the effect this can have on some people’s mental health to try to live up to their standards.”

The song features two soloists from both a male and female perspective displaying the impact mental health has on both sexes. The song at its core is conveying the thoughts of two people who are at their lowest point and our pleading with society to show them a way out. Aaron and Rachel are very glad that the money is going to the charity MyMy as mental health issues are prominent in today’s society and they feel that it is vital that more awareness is being raised.
Mr. Tim Brown, who teaches the Music Technology class, oversaw the recording and gave his professional experience and expertise in the mixing and editing stages of producing the tracks. A former professional musician with the famous 90s band “The Boo Radleys”, he was able to give advice and musical guidance to the students during the process.
He said “I gave the students the task of producing recordings as part of their coursework. As we looked into the criteria the students decided to take it up a level and put the recordings into the public domain and raise money for a local charity. It demonstrates great initiative and compassion on behalf of the students. They organised the singers and musicians and took control of the recording sessions using our school studio. When I heard what they had done musically, and how they had applied their technical skills, I was blown away and was really impressed with what they had produced. The amount of musical talent in St. Louis is outstanding and these pupils are a credit to the school”.
Mr Martin, Principal, stated “It is important that we as a school are able to help those in need. We have a strong tradition of supporting charitable causes here in St Louis and I am pleased the pupils could use their talents in this way to raise money for Mind Your Mate & Yourself. I urge parents, pupils and the local community to get online and download the album!”
The song will be released through iTunes, Amazon Music, and other download sites on 14th March to coincide with the schools’ Spring Concert. Parents and pupils are encouraged to download the song to help raise funds for, and awareness of, the MyMy charity. A special edition charity album featuring the song, and songs that have been produced as part of the Music Technology course over the last three years, will also be available for sale on the night of the Spring Concert.
