Jason Swift, Director and Auctioneer of Hodges Mentone has turned his hand to music, for a great cause.

“Sweet, I’m Swifty” is a fun and catchy rap song, written and produced in Jason’s native London tongue “Cockney Rhyming Slang” and will be released on iTunes on 9 May 2017 to raise vital funds to support research into Usher Syndrome, a rare genetic condition causing deafness, progressive vision loss and vestibular dysfunction. There is currently no cure.

“Myself and the team at Hodges Mentone are passionate about giving back and supporting our local community. I really hope that not only the community here in Australia but also back in the UK get behind this great cause and buy a copy of my rap to support Louis and others suffering from Usher Syndrome” said Jason.

It is hoped that the release of the song will raise much needed funds to support vital research into emerging gene based therapies for Usher syndrome.

Search “Sweet I’m Swifty” in the iTunes Store to purchase for just $1.19.
