Addressing Men’s Mental Health: Rocketsmith Launches the ‘Heart Full of Hollow’ Campaign

Rocketsmith, the rock band hailing from Pickering, North Yorkshire, is taking a bold stand for men’s mental health with their latest campaign, centered around their song “Heart Full Of Hollow.” This song, which has recently been shortlisted for the UK Songwriting Awards, delves deep into the personal journey of lead singer Andy through a period of depression. Rocketsmith’s aim is to raise awareness, provide support, and inspire others who may be facing similar struggles through their campaign.

Heart Full Of Hollow: A Song about the Journey to Overcoming Mental Health Challenges

“Heart Full Of Hollow” is a poignant song that delves into a deeply personal and relatable experience of Rocketsmith’s lead singer, Andy, during a challenging episode of depression. Despite the appearance of a perfect life from the outside – a loving family, a thriving business, a passion for music, and a strong social circle – Andy found himself silently battling his inner demons.

“One day, after a minor irritation, a switch flipped,” recalls Andy. “I felt SO low, I was drowning in my own thoughts. I had lost touch with reality, seeing myself as a burden and a failure.”

Without warning, Andy left his home on autopilot, embarking on a solitary journey that lasted for many hours, ultimately leading him to a cliff edge overlooking a quarry. It was the distant sound of emergency sirens that snapped him back into reality, prompting him to choose to fight this internal struggle rather than succumb to the darkness.

The Journey to Recovery: A Documentary of Hope

In an effort to provide hope and support to others facing similar challenges, Rocketsmith has released a short documentary video that details Andy’s battle with depression, his path to recovery, and his commitment to living a better life with the help of support and self-improvement techniques.

Andy’s story serves as a testament to the power of resilience, personal growth, and the importance of seeking help when facing mental health challenges.

Band Members Share Their Personal Journeys

Rocketsmith comprises four musicians, each of whom has confronted their own mental health challenges and discovered solace in the world of music:

  • Mark N: A dedicated father of three, Mark N discovered his love for music as a teenager and found healing and personal growth through his musical journey. He now leverages his experiences to assist others in overcoming limiting beliefs and shaping their mindsets for success.
  • Andy: A lifelong music enthusiast, Andy’s passion for rock and roll began at a young age. He firmly believes in the transformative power of music to connect, heal, and inspire, and his journey is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
  • Anth: Anth’s fascination with drumming started in childhood, and he has dedicated his life to music ever since. Music has been both his passion and therapy, guiding him through the darkest moments of his life.
  • Mark H: Inspired by iconic bass players from bands like Yes, Iron Maiden, and Motorhead, Mark H found solace in playing the bass guitar. He has returned to the stage to create powerful music and connect with audiences.

Rocketsmith extends an open invitation to everyone to join them on their musical journey and participate in their campaign for men’s mental health.
