When singer-songwriter Jordan Lally lost his father to suicide, he knew he could no longer hide his own struggles with anxiety & depression. It was time for him and his bandmates in Big Infinite to get “real” and share their own mental health struggles with the world. The "Power of Expression" is an "unplugged" style music documentary and a 5-song EP that share Big Infnite's uplifting music and healing journey, while providing inspiration and wellness techniques to help others find hope, purpose and healing.
Personal Message from Jordan Lally:
As a family, we walked hand in hand with my beloved father Ed Lally as he suffered through multiple bouts of clinical depression, the last of which culminated in suicide. Through my Dad’s journey, as well as our own personal experiences, we know first-hand the pain and isolation that depression and anxiety can cause. It is through both lessons learned during our darkest of days and the healing we’ve experienced since my Dad’s passing, that we embrace a proactive approach to mental health through self-expression and self-awareness.
We believe that honest expression - creative, conversational and therapeutic - will help to remove the sense of isolation that so often exacerbates struggles with mental health, and create a profound sense of connection. Through personal practice, we also know of the evidence-based healing power of mindfulness upon the brain. We believe in accessible present-moment practices of self-awareness to foster healing and improve coping skills & resiliency, helping folks to “weather the storm” in moments of crisis and prevent suicide.
We are not alone in our stresses, depressions and anxieties. Our stories may be different, but through our shared struggles and success' we can find a higher, common ground. Together we will heal.
