Interview
Tell us about yourself ? Where you come from , your background ?
This book links together almost all of my life experience as a survivor of a chaotic childhood that encompassed sexual, violent and emotional abuse. Drums saved my life, as I started at age eleven and became pro after studying through college. I taught and played for 5 years until deciding to go into management. I hid all of my dark past from everyone including those closest to me. Until my ex-wife called me out on my shit 7 years ago in the most loving, open and supportive way possible, I was hiding parts of myself from everyone – which held me back from living my ultimate truth. I started my process of change with psychotherapy, did a year and a half and then continued on a path of personal deveIopment courses for 7 years. The final part of the major transformation of finally overcoming a state of constant self-hate, was writing this book. I am in a unique position to lift the curtains of the music industry and illustrate the experiences and challenges of professionals in the music business. Poor mental health affect.

As I see it, the main problem in the music industry is that we who live and work within it, don't readily admit to our ‘madness’, but looking at the path we've chosen - to invest ourselves in this world of slim chances and cut-throat deals - there has to be a little madness, right? “We're not mad,” I hear you all cry, “we're musicians!” But however you cut it, staying sane in such a competitive and ruthless industry is not straightforward. Trust me, I am speaking from experience - I am not ‘sane’ - and almost every artist I have worked with would say the same about themselves. This particular and beautiful form of 'insanity' characterises many music professionals today and, once we admit this to ourselves, we can openly explore the issues and reasons surrounding why and how we are mad! Once we've done that we can begin the journey of learning to manage ourselves within a specific framework that acknowledges and accounts for our eccentricities; building on them and affording us happier and more organised lives. We need to be able to access altered states without drink and drugs, the book teaches this. As well as using the attributes developed as a musician and integrating them into our daily lives...
