RONA dealer’s band addresses teen mental health in new song

Mental illness among youth shouldn’t be glossed over or buried, says Rob Faries. Besides being a RONA dealer with two stores on the edge of James Bay in northern Ontario, he’s also the front man for a rock and roll band called the Relic Kings.

The band’s latest song, “Hey Good Night,” tackles the theme of teen addiction and mental health. “I think it’s a good story to tell. It’s better that we talk about it, so everyone can learn from it and console each other. Because we’re all going through the same thing,” says Faries.
