Before you listen – this is a video, beautifully filmed and put together with a true understanding of the single Heavy Soul. The Rainbreakers singer Ben Edwards walking alone through the streets and woods. In the distance beckoning is… This is not a common or garden girl meets boy then break up I am feeling hurt number. The filming never distracts your ear from the lyrics and musicality of Heavy Soul. The words have a deeper meaning reflecting real life feelings and experiences.
This is what Ben Edwards said about this powerful single that is a reflection of the superb musicianship of Shropshire based The Rainbreakers.
**** HEAVY SOUL ****
A song close to our hearts about battling with depression and anxiety. So we are thrilled to announce that we are teaming up with Shropshire Mind to boost awareness for people with mental health issues.
Depression and anxiety is something, which like many other people, Ben has been silently dealing with. He wanted to raise the issue through song, partly for himself as a release or as a type of therapy, but also to help raise awareness.
Statement from Ben:
‘I have suffered from depression for many years now. I have to deal with many dark thoughts that aren’t easy to talk about or easy to deal with. Heavy Soul is about living through those times. It can feel like I’m on a knife edge at times unsure of how I’m going to feel from one day to the next. However, I think it’s really important to remember that we are all capable of good and when I feel at my lowest I always try to remember the better times. Even if I feel like I have a heavy soul, I take a deep breath and remind myself that I still have a heart of gold that is there wanting to shine.’
The Rainbreakers are:
Charlie Richards – Lead Guitar
Ben Edwards – Lead Vocals & Guitar
Peter ‘Pedro’ Adams – Bass
Sam Edwards – Drums
The Rainbreakers come of age with this single – Bluesdoodles love the creative sound they produce melding pop with soul edged in blue and hardened by rock. Modern mix for modern times and all its uncertainties and complexities.
