#064 Tamsin Embleton

Why do musicians seem to be so depressed all the time? One of the many interesting takeaways from Tamsin Embleton's recent book 'Touring And Mental Health' is that people who go into music have been shown to be disproportionately susceptible to certain mental health problems.

I found this book really fascinating and was very excited by the opportunity to talk about it with Tamsin, who edited it and contributed a large amount of the text itself. The conversation did not disappoint.

A psychotherapist who had a previous career in the music industry, Tamsin was the perfect person to pull this kind of project together. We discuss issues including the '27 Club', cancel culture, the fetishisation of creativity, and Tamsin identifies some of the easiest wins to improve mental health on the road.
