With his debut single 'Artist', espousing the struggles of the creative mind, Bryan Chua reaches out to silent sufferers in a moment of commiseration.
"Inspired by the stories of close friends and his personal struggles with anxiety and depression, ['Artist'] comes from a place of pain and sorrow that those battling with mental health often fall into," his press release states.
'Artist' is a piano-driven track that works as the centerpiece of a campaign Chua is helming, The Artist Campaign. It buckles up the song's message with a social outreach initiative, encouraging participants to share their stories about living with anxiety and depression, anchored by the hashtag #ARTIST2017SG.
Chua and his team, supported by the Community Health Assessment Team (CHAT), will pick these stories up for a short documentary to be released in April 2017.
