Lead vocalist Donny Donovan also produced the record, and played all instruments except for drums. Donovan spoke about…

Mental Health Matters: “I Thank My Mental Health Every Day”

I thank my mental health every day for what it has made me. I wouldn’t have stated that gratitude in so many words when in 2014 I had regular panic attacks that meant socialising, public eating, and creating meaningful emotional bonds went from regularities to rarities. I certainly didn’t agree with it when in 2017, one day, having fallen in love, made wonderful friends and felt settled in my new home of London, I found I couldn’t get myself out of bed. Soon I couldn’t get myself out of my…

Mental Health Matters: When an answer isn’t “the” answer—but you keep moving forward anyway

It was coming up to New Year in the Czech Republic, where I had moved since breaking up with my long-term boyfriend. I was a tired cliché: a failing musician who’d reached her 30s and realised that the music career clock had all but stopped ticking and ended up clinically depressed. Yawn. The irony for me was that I had achieved some significant things that were steps capable of taking me closer to my goals. But I couldn’t see them as such, because that’s what depression does: it robs you…

Mental Health Matters: “My depression was a part of me, and it needed to be heard.”

I’m a writer – or at least, that’s what my parents always said. And so I write a lot (on paper and to keyboard melodies) to try and make sense of the way my brain interprets the world around me. I wrote a story once that framed my depression as a really bad friend who enjoys manipulating you and seeing you fall apart into tiny little pieces. And while that’s a nice thing to imagine – simplifying depression as just some textbook plastic mean girl you can tell to go…

Mental Health Matters: Diabetes

I’ve been a Type 1 diabetic for 27 years. At age 13, I came out of a near death coma with partial memory loss and a strong desire to master the solo in Metallica’s “One”. Since then I’ve dealt with the many pitfalls that come along with having a chronic condition in the Unites States. It’s affected every single aspect of my life, including being a touring and recording musician. Managing a healthy blood sugar level is a nonstop balancing act. It takes discipline and patience to adapt to changing…

Mental Health Matters: ” I was dying, and I was still trying to keep up with everyone else.”

First, I want to say that I am so grateful that more and more people are becoming more open to sharing their own personal struggles with mental health. I have learned that, unfortunately, there is a negative stigma attached to talking about these issues- especially in the music industry. There is so much pressure to be constantly busy, productive, and always ‘on our game’. We are in a world where everything everyone does appears in our social media feed, and whether we are aware of it or not, we are…
