In the Music Real E114, Nicki chats with Paul Saintilan CEO for Music Australia and editor and primary co-author of the recently released book Musicians & Addiction: Research and Recovery Stories. Paul talks about how the book came about and how industry can level up with additional strategies and practices starting with an Industry Wish List call to action in the book. The book is an exceptional resource talking about Pressures created by Performance Anxiety, or to be Creative and Original, Social, Cultural and Workplace Pressures to drink or use drugs, Dealing with Identity Issues – sub cultural – Public and Personal Persona, the Pressure of Fame and Celebrity, Imposter Syndrome and ways to manage the Emotional Turbulence generated by these Pressures. Highly recommend this book. Check it out below.
