Josh fulfils tuneful ambition

A young person who was supported by a team at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) has fulfilled a dream of producing and recording his own music.

Josh Allen (22), worked with Kevin Scott who runs Lost Tribe Audio in Doddington as part of the help he received from the Trust’s CAMEO (Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Assessing, Managing and Enhancing Outcomes) Service, which supports children and adults 14-35 with mental health needs.

Josh wrote his own lyrics and was able to bring the song to life in Kevin’s recording studio, using a range of specialist equipment. Josh and Kevin spent the day perfecting the song and he left with a completed track.

Josh was supported by key workers Ali Mahmood and Vanessa Manning and his care coordinator, Sarah Phillips.

Sarah said: “We encourage people to set a goal that will help them move forward and develop. This has been a long-held ambition for Josh, so we contacted Kevin to book in a recording session. We’re so pleased with the results. Kevin has given Josh such confidence and we are so proud of him.”

Music has well established benefits, including communication skills, building self-confidence, and improving concentration.

Kevin added: “Josh is a smashing young man and has a genuine talent. He was relaxed and focussed behind the microphone and seemed to instinctively know how to perform in the studio. I think he really enjoy the whole experience and the smile he had when he listened to the recordings said it all.”
