Lily-Jo, the Manchester based singer and founder of the ‘The Lily-Jo Project’ – an online mental health resource, has released a brand new single titled ‘Bring Me Back’.
‘Bring Me Back’ is taken off Lily-Jo’s debut EP, ‘Need To Know, and is accompanied by her very first music video.
The song depicts the moving story of two individuals who have been through abusive times and are seeking healing and restoration. Check out ‘Bring Me Back’ here:
Besides pursuing her music career, Lily-Jo is also a qualified counsellor and her experiences in the counselling room heavily inspire her song writing. Lily-Jo says, “After shows people were coming up to me sharing their stories of self-harm, depression, childhood abuse, etc. I didn’t have the quality time to talk with each individual for a lengthy amount of time but desperately wanted to give them something they could go away with. That’s where the idea for The Lily-Jo Project came from. It’s an online resource with information on low mood, anxiety, eating disorders, self-harm, childhood trauma, grief and loss, and low self-esteem. There’s also tips on how to combat each issue, as well as, video logs, exercises, recommended resources, links to further national (UK) help, and more.”
Since the launch of the The Lily-Jo Project website at the end of February 2016, it has had over 2500 hits from over 27 different countries. About the website Lil-Jo says, “I am so pleased that this resource is being widely used and accepted. My goal is to keep it continually updated with new stories, new issues being covered, and translated into multiple languages to reach as many people as possible.”
