DNE – Rapper

“My name is Kennedy but I am also known as DNE which stands for Diverse ‘Nd Equal. I am a 24 year old spoken word poet, blogger, author and rapper from Dorset. I write about anything emotional from growing up in the care system to falling in love and most of the time I put a backing track behind it. I suffer with mental health issues and I started writing when I thought that I couldn’t survive. I am also transgender so my life has always been ‘different’ but I’m just a guy trying to raise awareness and break all sorts of stereotypes.”

Vicky Limm

“I am 20 years old and have suffered from depression and anxiety since I was 16. I have also had a food phobia and panic disorder since I was about 10 but was only diagnosed with PTSD a year ago.

I started writing songs when I was 16 as a way to express myself. Music enables me to express feelings that I often can’t put into words and is one of my coping mechanisms when I’m having a bad day. I hope my songs can show people that they’re not alone and maybe even inspire them.”

Katy Palmer

“I am a singer songwriter and I use acoustic guitar to accompany my songs whilst writing. I have grown up around music with my mum as a big influence to that. I was excited to be asked to perform at this mental health evening as I have had a rough time with my mental health personally, and have channelled a lot of emotion into my music and composition. It is a topic that I hold closely to my heart.”

Second Hand Smoke

A rock/funk quartet playing Stevie Wonder and RHCP covers alongside original pieces. Brook, Zac and Will have been friends for years and played regularly however this is their debut performance as Second Hand Smoke.

“We are really keen to support the cause and try and raise money and awareness for it all.” Will.

Eve Appleton

Solo singer/songwriter. Eve is inspired by various topics including poetry and life growing up in a small town by the sea.

Dj EllM

Ending the evening: “Bringing you the finest Drum n Bass & Jungle, a set guaranteed to blow your socks to another dimension.”

Young people who attend B Sharp’s regular weekly sessions – Hub Jams in Lyme Regis and Bridport Jams (B Sharp Voices) in Bridport – will also present their own original songs and tracks that they have worked together as a group to create, about things that matter to them and are passionate about.
