King's Lynn head boy releases single
A 17-year-old Lynn schoolboy releases a single to mark Mental Health Day tomorrow (Thursday, October 10) after suffering a struggle with anxiety.
William Coase is the head boy at Springwood High School.
His debut single is called Other Side of the Door, and is an alternative-electronic ballad that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster both lyrically and instrumentally.
The record deals with William’s experiences and struggles in coping with anxiety throughout his adolescence.
The door acts as a metaphor for the side of William’s personality and insecurities that he does not want to be a part of him.
This debut release provides a raw and honest insight into the 17-year-old’s state of mind and determination to overcome his demons. It came out to coincide with tomorrow's World Mental Health Day, and he plays a fundraiser at the school for MIND as well.
He hopes the Other Side of the Door hopes to raise awareness as well as inspire others to share their experiences through the expression of music or other forms of art.
William said: “Through speaking about my experiences I hope this fundraiser will educate and encourage my peers to be able to talk about their own concerns and seek appropriate help.
“I’ve been performing in the local area in concerts at the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange and at events including Festival Too since the age of four.
“It is my ambition to pursue a career as a singer-songwriter and this single is the first of six to be released in the coming year.
“I’ve had a musical upbringing due to my father being a local professional musician who was well-known in King’s Lynn and the surrounding area. Unfortunately, he passed away last year and it would be nice if his legacy can live on through me.”
Other Side Of The Door can be found on all good streaming platforms.
