Self Care

Next week on The BACK LOUNGE, without wanting to put a cheesy spin on it, we’re looking at ‘SELF CARE’ ????To quote a recent BL participant “I tour manage the shit out of everything. But I have never tour managed myself“ Is this the acceptable face of workaholism? We’re too busy taking care of everyone else? Or is it always being at the back of the queue when it comes to priorities? I’m co hosting this one with Debbie Taylor, high profile PM Asst & Prod Coord (GnR, KPop, ACDC, Black Sabbath) We’ll be looking at why this is so common & how we can look after ourselves better. DM for the link to join the zoom discussion. Wed 1st March 6pm GMT London ????#healthytouring #touringcrew #touringmusicians #tourlife #worklifebalance #selfcare

Next week it’s ‘FEAST OR FAMINE’ on The BACK LOUNGE. Have you been lucky enough to have some work? How was it? Is it great to be back but it also feels more exhausting and more stressful somehow than before…have we lost our mojos and gone soft?! If you relate, then no – it’s not just you. Our esteemed guests this week are Jeordie Shenton & Adam Ficek at Tonic Rider www.tonicmusic/tonic-rider ?All welcome. DM to join ? Wed 18th August 6pm BST

How can we make it stick and is there a dark side to all this we need to be mindful of? We’re joined this week by special guests Malle Kaas and Erin Lynch from WILM (Women in Live Music) – they’ll be sharing their experience of life on the road. Join us, this is an important one. Wednesday 7th July 6pm BST
