Listen to Janet Bickerton's new song "Can't You Help Me"

This song, "Can't You Help Me", is telling two stories.
The repeated plea for help that seems to fall on deaf ears even though those in dire need are standing right in front of us. It speaks to our inability to see ourselves in others.. the ways we put distance between us.

And the story of those on the ground, trying to help - coming up against the fear and apathy of the system and sometimes our own neighbors. It asks us to reach for the best in us.. that we have what it takes.
