“PLAYING MY OWN MUSIC IS OFTEN THE ONLY PLACE LEFT TO GO TO FIND LOVE AND PEACE”

– David Martin, September 2017

It's about Hope
It's about Awareness

Birdsong: David Martin New Music Foundation is a nonprofit National Canadian Charity dedicated to improving the lives of people with mental illness in Canada. Our message and mission is to help, inform and inspire Canadians through new music, small local community concerts, promotions and awareness campaigns to change our existing belief system around those with mental illness.

By offering production money to publish original music, the vision for the Foundation is to creatively change the stigma attached to the diagnosis of mental illness, and change the way our society speaks about people living with mental illness.
