About Listen Up Music

Listen Up Music is a mental health and music organisation.

We exist to foster an inclusive community of musicians and fans who share an appreciation for music’s unique power to unite and heal. We host a series of music-focused events and services that build community, facilitate storytelling and promote healing.

Our Story

Listen Up Music was founded by Ali Taylor and Hank Paul, born out of a passion for music and mental health.

Ali and his family have personally dealt with the impact of mental health, and he has made it his life’s work to combat the stigma and provide a meaningful impact in people’s lives through the power of music.

Although it had been operating under a different name for a number of years, Listen Up Music was officially formed in 2018 .

Our Mission

Here at Listen Up Music, our mission is to harness music’s unique ability to unite and heal.

Through events such as The Songwriting Prize, and providing services that educate and equip individuals, music will always be at the core of what we do.
