SANE ambassador Mason Noise has helped to raise awareness of mental health in schools since joining forces with SANE in August 2017.
Mason began his SANE school trip at Eastbury Community School to welcome the return of Elvis, a fibreglass statue of a black dog, as part of the charity’s campaign.
The black dog has been a metaphor for depression for centuries, having featured in classical mythology and medieval folklore.
When asked why he was supporting the Black Dog campaign, Mason said, “Having struggled in the past with the Black Dog of depression myself, it’s no surprise to me that so many young people are affected – but the way SANE works is to try and support those who need it.”
Mason continued, “Depression doesn’t discriminate. It’s time that we spread the word that it’s more common than most still think, especially in schools. Whether we suffer from mental illness or not, we all let external things dictate our inner being.”
“Anxiety, anger and depression affects us all to some degree – it’s time to inspire people to help our friends, family and classmates fight back.”
Mason Noise is heading to LA later this month to add the finishing touches to his hotly anticipated EP – ‘Good Days Are Forever’ with an award-winning producer.
His single ‘She Drives Me Crazy’, a cover of the Fine Young Cannibals’ huge 80s hit, will be released with a music video in February 2018. The track has already been a massive hit within the industry, with names such as: The Weeknd, Marvin Humes and most recently Sinitta praising his vocals and vibe.
In a recent interview with C&C, Mason Noise said, “The decision to do a cover was completely arbitrary. People are resonating with hooks/songs that are being recreated. A lot of dance songs are covers and even in the R&B world, they’re being taken and revamped. Music was a lot better then than it is now.”
Mason continued, “I want to bring that music back – that old R&B sound. I never put myself in a box with regards to sound, if it resonates with me then great; it’s more the vibe I’m trying to recreate than the sound. The same vibe you might get from the 90s and 00s R&B.”
Many UK charities are utilising celebrity supporters as a way of enticing new audiences to support, or at least take note, of their causes.
This month, we have helped to raise the profile of two charity events using our ritzy portfolio of celebrity talent – Midlands Air Ambulance Charity golf day & the Elbrook Gala Dinner.
On 10th October 2017, Midlands Air Ambulance Charity hosted their 3rd annual corporate golf day in Warwickshire with celebrity support from Yogurt Top’s Waine Turner, Mason Noise and George Gilbey. The celebrity putters were also joined by Yogurt Top’s CEO Matt Flint, who is a patron of the charity. The annual golf day helped to raise vital funds for the charity’s life saving work, and was hailed as one of the most prestigious, enjoyable and professional corporate golfing events in the UK.
Our very own Mason Noise has officially announced his ambassadorship with the UK’s leading mental health charity, SANE.
The ‘bad boy of X Factor’ is donating 100% of profits from his hotly anticipated single, ‘Hold Me’, to the charity with the aim of encouraging people to talk openly about mental health and wellbeing.
‘Hold Me’ will be released next month in partnership with SANE.
Mason Noise said: “SANE are a charity that are very close to my heart. For years I felt the need to hide the fact that I was struggling with depression and anxiety. I feared that it would make people believe that I wasn’t capable of reaching my dreams.
“Over the past year, I have watched people’s attitudes to mental health and wellbeing change. Slowly and surely, SANE and organisations like them, are proving that there’s nothing to be ashamed of.
“I want to encourage people to see the power in seeking an ear to talk to about what’s happening in their mind. Being given the opportunity to work with SANE is very exciting for me, and has helped me to achieve a comfortable state of mind.
“Never underestimate the power of being able to potentially help someone else. We all need a hand to hold, sometimes”.
Mason Noise is BACK with his debut single ‘LOCO’ which was released at midnight on 24th May 2017.
Mason Noise said, “I’m really excited about the single release – and what it represents for me. I have been working hard on my music career, since appearing on 2015’s X Factor. Now is my chance to re-connect with those who believed in me whilst I was on the show.”
“The bad boy of X Factor” Mason Noise is back with his debut single which is to be released at midnight on 24th May 2017.
The Birmingham born singer whose real name is Mason Binnell, was one of the X-Factor’s most controversial contestants after slamming the show’s producers during a live broadcast, for cutting his airtime. Since coming 7th during 2015’s show, Mason Noise has gone on to independently produce a debut single and EP, inspired by his journey to date.
Mason Noise said, “I come from a very rough, gang-affiliated, neighbourhood in Birmingham. I have escaped that route in life, and have been working hard on my music career, since appearing on 2015’s X-Factor.”
23 year old Mason has struggled with mental health and anxiety since the age of 17, and after seeking solace in his spirituality, his world was torn apart again in May 2016 when his girlfriend was tragically killed in a quad bike accident whilst on holiday in Turkey.
Mason Noise added, “The music I have been working on for the last twelve months has really helped me to deal with losing the love of my life. I will never get over not having her by my side but I enjoy writing music about the love that I felt for her. Music is what makes me whole and if nothing else, I feel very fortunate to have an outlet which can take me away from my dark places.”
Whilst on the infamous ITV show, Mason Noise was mentored by Radio1 DJ, Nick Grimshaw, who said “He was such a joy to work with” despite it being a bumpy ride in the beginning and described him as a “visionary”. As well as impressing the show’s hosts, the singer also received praise from Nick Jonas for his cover of Jealous during his final performance. Nick Jonas Tweeted, “Big shout out to my man @itsmasonnoise for doing Jealous! Don’t forget to vote! We need him in the show. #XFactor”.
The unorthodox team of Manchester cops have finally returned at full-throttle to our TV screens.
Our client, Will Mellor plays the unshakable DC Spike who always goes above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done along with the rest of the cast.
In Will Mellor’s interview with Channel 4 in the run up to the release of series 2, Will said, “No Offence is different. This season, we go on a complete right angle and it’s a completely new adventure.”
Will says that series 2 will go further into the history of his character, DC Spike Tanner, “We delve into Spike’s past and where he comes from. When I read it, I was over the moon. It’s really nice to have a storyline which is more personally emotional for Spike, as well as following the case – and not just Spike the detective.”

We also had an incredible amount of support from the celebrity guests who attended, and hope that they will be joining us at our next event in 2017!”
James Arthur, the album chart topper who headlined this years event said, “I’m delighted to be playing a couple of songs at the Elbrook Gala Dinner this evening in support of such a great cause!”
