Today’s the big day! Ralph’s Life has launched a 6 week crowd funding campaign to produce a charity CD featuring 40 brilliant tracks by (mainly) Indie artistes. We know they’re all brilliant because we did a mega micro-review session on Twitter covering every single number during a special show courtesy of the fantastic Radio Kaos Caribou a few days ago.
Wullae Wright, one of the talented contributors to the double album has created some stunning artwork featuring all the artistes’ names and the one and only Ralph, of course. Plans are afoot (apaw?) to get some prints made.
The support for this great music project has so far been phenomenal and now’s the time to turn up the volume by sharing the story with as many people as you can. We want to raise as much awareness and money as possible. Every penny raised will go to charity Rethink Mental Illness – although they’re UK based their reach is global. Rethink also run ground-breaking campaigns like Time To Change with Mind Charity making a direct impact on how mental illness is viewed, discussed and managed at every level. It really is Time To Talk about mental health – this should be in the same breath as physical health – the two go hand in hand after all.
A couple of other artists are donating proceeds from their latest track sales over the next 6 weeks. Check this epic number by Graham Marshall whose track will feature on the double CD and this beautiful song by his friend Jane Allison.
To listen to some of the tracks on Ralph’s Life double album check out The Fine Line Project on Soundcloud.
The most crucial link of all, here is Ralph’s Life’s Charity Music CD’s Crowdfunding page – please make a pledge today (from as little as £1) and ask all your friends, family and work colleagues to get involved with this important cause. Mental health issues affect 1 in 4 worldwide – none of us can afford to be complacent. Let’s all help to bring about some change today.
We thank you in advance for spreading the good word and the great music!
Lovely music. Link shared.

My son sits in a State Mental Hospital. He has been there for a year. The first nine months he wrote and recorded over 75 songs on a cheap battery powered recorder. Now, I am sorry to say, he is declining in health, no recovery in sight. The songs he has written talk about his illness (Bipolar and complex PTSD) and his struggle. You can listen to his songs at http://www.reverbnation.com/andrewneil . The song titles that are annotated with “(WSH first cut)” were written and recorded in his hospital room.
Thank you so much for sharing the link. I hope your son is managaging to cope, day by day, with your support. With kind thoughts.
