A number of weeks back Jasmine Rigby met two Wales based music producers who recorded a heartfelt and inspiring song to raise mental health awareness.

Local Barry producer James Hoare joined forces with Cardiff producer Ben Banjo Field, who together decided to create a meaningful song with a powerful message.

The result was called 'Sometimes', which was created during the many stages of lockdown in late 2020 and it helped a number of charities fundraise including Colwyn Bay and Llandudno based CAIS.

However behind the song is a very personal story for James who has struggled with mental health and also addiction. Jasmine caught up once again with James in the hope that his story may help others in a similar situation.

Please take some time to listen to this compelling and sometimes, emotional story.
