Mental Health Matters: Coping with PTSD in the Music Industry

There have been a lot of stories over the past couple of years about sexual and domestic abuse within the music industry. These conversations are mired in hot takes – debates about legality vs. morality, about “call-out culture” and the prevalence of so-called witch hunts, and about separating the art from the artist. I’m not here to debate any of that today. Instead, I’m going to talk about the other half of the abuse coin – the mental health repercussions that can stem from it and how has played into…

Mental Health Matters: When Moving to LA to Pursue Your Dream Breaks You

After four years of living in Los Angeles, I recently made the decision to move back home to Texas. This was a very difficult decision.

At the same time, none of us would’ve wanted to experience it with anybody else. All…
