Our lives as musicians can feel lonely

We are part of a wonderful profession of innovation and change alongside tradition. We bring creativity and joy to the lives of many people, but often our own lives feel hidden.

Issues we may be facing with motivation, money issues, mental health issues and injury are too often kept inside. We are scared of what might happen if we share our struggles as well as our music.

I want this to change. I have created a podcast, Things Musicians Don’t Talk About, in which I interview guests and share my own experience in order to raise awareness for the real issues we face.

Nothing is off limits, we will talk about anything we need to talk about to make the world a bit brighter!
