VIDEO: Watch Bully cover PJ Harvey's "Dry"

Sounds of Saving/YouTube

"Songs That Found Me at the Right Time" is something the mental health organization Sounds of Saving started to help those living with mental health issues.

Bully's Alicia Bognanno stepped up to not only share her story, but also to do a splendid cover of a PJ Harvey favorite.

In the interview prior to the performance (which starts around the 5 minute mark) Bognanno discussed dealing with Bipolar 2 Disorder:

“A lot of musicians, like myself, are sober and dealing with mental health. I think it’s 85% of artists, or something, struggle with mental health. I have a link on my fridge for a suicide prevention hotline because you never know when people are going to need that. And people aren’t really vocal about it, so that should be readily available at all times.”

Watch her moving discussion and do her hero, Harvey, justice with her performance of "Dry"...
