Music practically saved me after I was diagnosed firstly with schizophrenia and then, later, schizoaffective disorder after a breakdown in 2000. I was in a very bad way mentally but found that as soon as I began to take playing the guitar seriously that I had the ability to write songs. As a result I have been writing, recording and performing my own music since, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. I have just released a mental health-themed single called "Angel Of Mercy", which I have added to this playlist. My playlist also features many of the singer-songwriters who spoke to me and inspired me over the years with their beautiful music.

OUR  PLAYLISTS

Each week we share one of our Hummingbird's playlists. A collection of 12 songs (a nod of respect to the 12 lives lost on average every day in the UK) that mean something personal to them, songs that may well have been the inspiration that helped them through a tough time.
