Help Your Self  (the Séan McCann Story)

https://bc.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1316002&binId=1.1184756&playlistPageNum=1

Music is strong medicine. It brings peace and compassion and helps us make sense of our often volatile world. When I have my guitar in my hands, I know that I am not alone. The past is not my prison and I am not a victim....I am a survivor. - Séan McCann

John Lennon once sang You can live a lie until you die. One thing you can't hide is when you're crippled inside. After exiting the internationally renowned folk group Great Big Sea and publicly admitting a secret past in which he used alcohol to mask the pain of sexual abuse by a priest; Séan stopped lying to himself and found his truth and his voice. With the release of his 5th solo album, Theres a Place, he continues his journey as a singer, songwriter, and now a sought after speaker and mental health advocate with Old Brown by his side and a simple message: You are not alone.

His 2014 album Help Your Self was a battle cry; a line in the sand which announced that he was ready to change and it resonated with people in a way Séan never could have expected. It helped him understand that he wasnt alone and that telling his story could help others as much as it helped him. 2015s You Know I Love You was inspired by the love he found in sharing that story and an attempt to find a new and real connection in a world that had turned inward to its smart phones. Now comes Theres a Place which was produced by Jeremy Fisher, features the beautiful voice of Nova Scotia singer/songwriter Meaghan Smith, and is a collection of songs from a man who is trying to keep his head up when we are tempted to keep them buried in our screens; its the story of a man no longer crippled by a lie and who has changed his narrative by not letting his history define him and never forgetting......that he is not alone.
