Mental Health Matters: On Music, the Light, and the Darkness

  Maintaining the public semi-fictions we present to the world can be exhausting.  There is pressure to become the most digestible and uncomplicated versions of who we think we should be for others to see and acknowledge.  But this picture we present usually lacks what I would call ‘personal substance’ – that private world where our depth of feeling, tangible rawness and vulnerability resides.  This under-the-skin honesty is too heavy to be shared out loud in person, and something we are expected to tuck away deep within ourselves and not…

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.

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. I fought with myself for a good chunk of those years convincing myself I was happy living here and that going back home was a sign of weakness and a sign that I gave up. I was too stubborn swimming in denial to admit that I was unhappy. I was so fixated on making a name for myself in the music industry and getting my…
