A collection of unsigned country artists have come together to release an original Christmas song in support of MIND, Mental Health charity. 2020 has been a year that nobody was expecting and has undoubtedly caused disruption and uncertainty for many. With people facing job losses while struggling to see family and friends, mental health has been at the forefront.
On the positive side, the period has brought people closer together and allowed new friendships and connections to be made. Cardiff based company Scarlet River Management and Country Chat have partnered with 8 unsigned country artists across the globe to record an original Christmas single, all proceeds of which will go to MIND mental health charity.
Dom Crooke, Founder of Country Chat says, “Being in lockdown, not being able to see the ones I love, and having to quit my job due to the pandemic, this year has had a huge toll on my mental health which I know is affecting many others throughout the world. I dreamed of creating a single of a few artists that I’ve got to know very well throughout this period of time and with the immense help of Rachel and Tyler, a dream is now a reality.”
Rachel Sellick, Founder of Scarlet River says, “This year has been an incredibly difficult year in many respects for me. I have had a lot of personal challenges as well as changes to my work situation. However, it has also been a time to reflect and I have made new friendships and relationships with people that are now an integral part of my life.”
The track, I Won’t Forget To Miss You will be released on Friday November 27 and will be available for pre-order from Friday November 13.
Songwriter Tyler Spicer explains, “‘I Won’t Forget to Miss You’ encapsulates the global and universal sentiments that we’ve all felt during this pandemic: those of missing family, those of separation from loved ones, and those of trying to find a sense of normality in the face of mass change. I hope this single can bring together our collective experience for both positive, active change, and to heal and unify us all, wherever we are, no matter how far apart, this Christmas.”
