Robbie’s song supports Aberdeenshire mental health charity Shirley’s Space
An Aberdeenshire musician has released a single in support of Fraserburgh-based adult mental health charity Shirley’s Space.
Businessman, singer and songwriter Robbie Garden, managing director and co-owner at JB Well Solutions, wrote and sings the special song entitled ‘Shepherd’.
The beautiful melody is inspired by the love of a young groom’s wedding day vow to his wife, and it will no doubt resonate with lots of people following a year that has left many deflated.
Robbie, who has written and recorded music since he was 15, said: “I love sharing my music with others and working on new projects, and I have really found it a great solace over the last year.
“If I can help others through song, then that is mission accomplished for me.”
Funds raised from the release of the song will go to Shirley’s Space.
Over the last year the charity successfully established a base in Aberdeenshire – at Crimond Medical Centre – where it can offer individuals suffering from mental health issues the opportunity to speak to trained volunteers.
Ashley Mackie, a trustee of the charity, said: “We are so overwhelmed that Robbie would donate the royalties of this song to Shirley’s Space.
“I hope that those that are feeling low at this time of year will listen to the lyrics and melody and know that they are not alone.
“Music therapy is known for helping reduce depressive symptoms and anxiety and helps to improve overall functioning.
“This is a wonderful token from Robbie to think of us as the charity to support.”
Robbie’s song ‘Shepherd’ is now available on all major streaming platforms, including Spotify, iTunes and Amazon Music.
