The song starts with an organ acting as a prayer and bubbly synth representing the alchemy of giving into yourself. Trumpets and brass usher in a new day and dream that is your own. Fuzz guitar gives you that sexy rock and roll power, a sultry charisma that comes from your middle and a martini glass. The chorus are your angels cheering you on as you decide to mend your life. The tempo of the song is the tempo of your healing tears. If suffering has a remedy or balm – this song would be it.”

Produced and mixed by Alex Borwick, “Heal Me” features the talents of Graham Hopkins on drums, Caoimhe Hopkinson on bass guitar, Brass by Kevin Foran and Tom Caraher and a pub choir from Celbridge, Co Kildare.
