Practice in Public Makes Perfect: how playing for your fans makes you better

Price, 57, has played music nearly her whole life, starting with piano when she was five years old. But in the fall of 2009, the guitar was still something of mystery to her. She had been playing for only a couple of months and was struggling a bit with the new challenges. Yet, instead of […]

This week’s essential mix from All Songs Considered includes a surprising, electronic, mostly instrumental cut from The 1975 — a British group known more for its brash Top-40 pop and rock — an intimate home demo recording from My Morning Jacket and a spare, moody cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” by the Irish folk […]

We are all too quick to judge others stress can kill. Think about your actions and others

“Consider heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women, killing more women than all cancers combined. If we can do more to prevent, treat and cure cardiovascular disease, more women will live longer, more families will stay together, more workers will stay productive, and we’ll save money on treating a condition that costs the U.K. […]

Being able to recognise your own trigger to why you are depressed can help you understand, and fight the negative feelings that are affecting you. Behaviour Depression can easily change the way you behave. It could make you withdraw […]

This blog is one that I really didn’t want to write. Starting out as a dancer before becoming the main frontman for rave/techno/punks The Prodigy, Keith Flint epitomised joyful exuberance and confidence whenever he was on stage. This weekend just gone he was found at his home, dead from suicide, at 49 years old. The […]

Over the last few weeks I have been writing about how musicians, from stalwarts like Bruce Springsteen, to current global pop stars like Ariana Grande, have combatted mental health issues that they have struggled with. One thing that all these performers have in common is recognising the positive things that occur in their lives. The […]

This is a slightly different type of blog from the recent ones telling of how musicians suffer from mental health issues as I will be incorporating some of my first-hand accounts of my own problems in it too. Continuing with the Brit Awards theme today, this post is about Ellie Goulding, who, in 2010, won […]

Matty Healy, along with his band, The 1975, had a successful night at last night’s Brit Awards. They won Best British album for “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships”. I decided to write this blog for the benefit of those who may not know much about the band. 2013 saw the release of their debut […]

Bruce Springsteen’s catalogue of music, dating back to 1975 has made him one of America’s most successful musicians. His longevity testament to his popularity. His most famous album, 1984’s Born In The USA, along with it’s title track brought him attention from many people who didn’t read into his lyrics and misunderstood what Springsteen stood […]

In the last decade, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, more commonly known as Lady Gaga, has gone from a virtual unknown to one of the most recognisable and well known names in music. Not content with that, she is now also a Grammy nominated artist for her role in the 2018 remake of the movie “A […]

Promotions, new relationships and lucky monetary gains give only a temporary boost to our happiness before we return to a biological baseline. Sustained happiness takes work. Listed below are exercises that, when practiced regularly, can build habits to reinforce happiness. Choose a few exercises […]

Recently, I had a bit of a wobble in my fight with anxiety when it returned at a time when I was struggling with my self-worth. Why was my partner with me? What did she see in me? Was I in a relationship just to be in a relationship? Questions I was asking myself that […]

Social anxiety disorder, also called social phobia, is a long-lasting and overwhelming fear of social situations. It’s a common problem that usually starts during the teenage years. For some people it gets better as they get older, although for many it doesn’t go away on its own. (1) It can be extremely distressing and have a big […]
