Next Wednesday on The BACK LOUNGE, it’s our second visit in recent weeks to a MASSIVE issue in our industry ???? SHAME & STIGMA are often mentioned as part of what keeps those living with addiction from opening their mouths in the world. If you are surrounded by booze & other substances as part of your day job, it’s little wonder as to why those suffering from the insidious disease of addiction refrain from putting their head above the parapet. Our guests are music industry folk in recovery to share how this differs (& remains the same), from crew to artist. We welcome David Hamilton (LD, Melissa Etheridge, Neil Young, Kenny Rogers), Joanne Croxford (TM/TC Peaches, DURAN DURAN), Mark Richardson (Skunk Anansie) & Chris Tait (Electric Six, Passenger Recovery). DM to join our discussion & share support. This will not be recorded. Wed 18th October 6pm London BST / 7pm CET/ 1pm EDT / 10am PDT ❤

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
