I’ve recently had the pleasure of working with mental health organisation Retune, providing promotional material including live music photography, branding-in-use and headshots .
Retune was founded by musician and journalist Tom Ryder, who faced mental health difficulties in his early twenties, and music has always been his greatest respite.
Retune harnesses the power of live music to promote wellbeing and mindfulness. Exploring the strong link between creativity and mental health, Retune provides a safe space with no judgement to increase confidence and resilience for our community.
Director & chair of Retune, Greg Camburn, says on the website: “I have always been acutely aware of the connection between mental wellbeing, creativity and music. I am incredibly proud of Tom and the team for creating a fabulous, non-profit organisation that I am certain will go on to assist a great many people”
Greg and Tom are also assisted by Fionnuala Shakespeare, the organisation’s director of funding, and sound engineer Tom Rowntree.
Retune put on regular shows at The Half Moon in Bishop’s Stortford and have featured a range of artists including Didi, Sabrina Francis, The Kazans, Vertaal, Wardnparker and Alex Bayly.
The next event is an all-dayer on Sunday 2nd June 2019 featuring an open mic, comedy and a very special headliner.
