Tell us about your Aus Music T-Shirt:
“My AusMusic T-Shirt is from Pool Shop; the solo project of a wonderful friend and artist, Jaimee Fryer.”
Aus Music T-Shirt Day is a super important initiative in the Australian music industry. Why is it such an important initiative to you?
“Supporting an organisation like Support Act is vital to a well-functioning and empathetic music community. A lot of people working in music are only just getting by and superannuation is almost not existent in a world often based around invoicing or short-term contracts.”
“If something unforeseen happens or health related issues prevent an individual from doing their job – the cost of living gets overwhelming quite quickly.”
We know that mental health can slip under the radar in this business. Why is it vital to talk about your mental health?
“Music is a wonderful passion to have but the associated lifestyle that comes with pursuing it in any capacity really takes its toll. It’s incredibly expensive to tour, record and release music and the general hours you end up keeping are not conducive to a healthy circadian rhythm and therefore good mental health.”
“Prioritising a career in music means you don’t often have other forms of stability – like a stable day job or finances in general – which can keep you in a pretty constant state of stress. Being open about this reality and the associated effects on mental health is super important and it would be wonderful if everybody felt comfortable sharing their experience – as I am certain an empathetic ear is never too far away in this community.”
