“I wrote this song from my own life experience. I lost my mother to suicide in 2010 when I was fourteen years of age. In Ireland and many other countries there has been an increase in suicide rates with worrying increases among younger people. Mental health and wellness are really important and I want to increase awareness.
As ‘people’ we yearn for acceptance and this causes huge anxiety leading to negative feelings and sometimes depression in all age groups across the world. Misuse of Social Media has magnified this problem for people and we need to find a coping mechanism”.
“Good Enough is a powerful contemporary pop song which is packed full of emotion that inspires the listener to rid themselves of negative thoughts and presents them with a soul lifting energy”.-Bayview Sounds.
“Good Enough builds like a carefully tended fire, starting off as a slow burning flame and gradually growing in power until it becomes a soaring anthem of positivity.”-The Merch Perch
