EP 5: Self Care

Season 1, Episode 6,  Mar 23, 2021, 05:00 PM

After a whole year of national lockdowns, those in the music industry have arguably been among those most affected – financially, emotionally and mentally. Liv looks this episode about how the disappearance of work opportunities has affected musicians’ mental health across the UK, speaking with freelance musician Russell Swallow about his own experience, and hearing from psychologist and counsellor Rachel Jepson (founder of Counselling for Musicians) about the support available to those in need. Liv then presents a playlist of tracks whose lyrics cover different journeys of mental health struggles, from hitting rock bottom to coming out the other side – including Mac Miller, Arlo Parks, SOAK and Johnny Nash.
