"Since I admitted to myself and others, I had a problem with my own mental health, my recovery has been a slow and at times difficult daily practice. Instead of making that journey alone, I found others who are walking in the same direction. Brian's well-documented example has been a positive influence on me and he has become an encouraging friend. As you know, I loved Scott and admired him and his songwriting deeply and I treasure memories of our musical adventures bringing us together.

There is light, but there’s a tunnel to crawl through. It’s a remarkable experience when someone describes exactly how you feel. It’s an overwhelming experience when someone tells you that it’s okay to feel how you feel.

Lewis and I had ran a

The Lewis Capaldi & Paolo Nutini intervention has finally come to an end. The story goes like this! Noel Gallagher called Lewis Capaldi Chewbacca, which in turn made Lewis wear a Chewbacca mask at his festival performance. The promoters from TRNSMT Festival auctioned the mask on eBay to donate proceedings to Tiny Changes. Paolo Nutini ended up buying it donating a full £10k to us then again auctioning it in Instagiving, which helped raise a total of £12,142 for Tiny Changes. Big UP for Noel, Lewis & Paolo for helping us #MakeTinyChanges.
