With many artists and bands finding their career path taking a toll on their mental health, Thursday and No Devotion frontman Geoff Rickly has launched his own podcast that addresses these concerns head on.
The podcast, Dark Blue, explores the crossroads where creativity and mental health intersect, and approaches them head on.
Rickly explains that he initially began putting the project together to document his own recovery from his heroin addiction, whilst also exploring the challenges and solutions of other artists in similar difficult situations.
“I decided to start this show to document my own recovery and to explore the challenges that artists face and the solutions that have worked for them. This series is meant as a form of searching, seeking out help. I’m not a professional and I don’t claim to be an authority—just another person looking for answers.”
The first three episodes of his Dark Blue podcast have now been released.
I’m so excited to finally share the first three episodes of a new project I’ve been working on: Dark Blue, a podcast exploration of mental health in the arts. https://t.co/IZWMPco5Az
