Standing With You

Standing With You, is a piece that features three people who are struggling in different areas of their lives such as addiction, illness and depression/suicide.

The piece shows, that through all the dark valleys, that these people may walk in, there’s HOPE and a future. All you need is that one person, that one hand, who will never leave your side, even if you don’t want them to be there.

"It's about the power of just being there. Sometimes as a friend or as a support to people who go through things – it's not about having the right anecdotes or answers; it's really more about just being that silent presence. Especially at a time like this when there's a lot of people who are feeling isolated, this song is a reminder to look out for people who feel alone." 

- Guy Sebastian
