A Moray businessman and his musician friends behind a song highlighting men’s mental health are set to perform at Elgin Town Hall.
Last month, Alan Jamieson with solo artists and members of local bands The Fragz, Into The Pines, Danny Mortimer and MacTa released the song The Conversation: I Am Me.
The music video has already attracted more than 1,600 views.
Concert to raise money
On Saturday, a gig is taking place at the town hall featuring all the musicians.
It is in aid of MikeysLine to help the charity expand services in Moray and work with all age groups.
Doors will open at 7pm.
Mr Jamieson said it is important to “normalise” men chatting about their real feelings.
He added: “I wrote a song. I write a lot of songs. Months later when listening back my own lyrics really hit home to me.
“I had been in a much darker place than I’d realised.
“Mental health issues have played a large part in my life from my early teens and still do to this day.
“I’m always the one happier to be there for others than to look out for myself, I’m sure many are the exact same.”
‘A hard conversation is far easier than a funeral’
He added: “We’ve started The Conversation in the hope it encourages others to do just that.
“A hard conversation is far easier than a funeral.”
