SPEAK UP - FT. SARA STORER
Speak Up was inspired by the words of Amy 'Dolly' Everett - "Speak even if your voice shakes". Dolly was a victim of bullying and ended her young life at just 14 years of age.
I wanted to raise awareness about bullying and the devastating impact it can have. I wrote this song with Garth Porter, who donated his studio and time to record the track in Sydney with Sara Storer. Ted Howard, the Sound Engineer also donated his time and expertise to the cause.
We worked with Pinjarra Primary School and Pinjarra Senior High School in Western Australia (where I was touring at the time) who were involved in the filming and audio recording of the track. The Pinjarra Primary School Choir can be heard in the recording of the Speak Up chorus.
The Dolly's Dream Charity was established by her family and friends in her memory. Dolly's Dream aims to create positive change, help prevent the lives of other children being lost, and act as a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Proceeds from the sale of 'Speak Up' will go to Dolly's Dream. Hard copies of 'Speak Up' including the video clip can be purchased through my online shop. Digital copies are available on iTunes, Apple Play, Spotify etc.
