Sydney songstress Helen Perris lays her soul bare with her brand new single “Be There.”

“Be There” is the type of empassioned piano-pop ballad which we hear all too rarely these days. The lyrics are deeply personal, penned while Helen was battling post-natal depression. However, the topic is tackled so cleverly that you don’t need to have lived through that hell to feel connected to this song.

“Be There” was named among the top 20 songs in the Listen Up Australia song writing competition this year. It comes from Helen’s forthcoming album.
