The Good Call Live Team are coming together in support of Support Act for #ausmusictshirtday … and we are doing it with a little help from our friends!
This time we’ve got podcast king and all round music loving legend, Shane Oliver. Shane has a podcast called, The Shane Oliver Experience where Shane chats to bands, musicians and music industry workers. The podcast is recorded with That’s Not Canon Productions. Through his podcast, Shane offers a unique perspective on the highs and lows of the world behind live music. Check it out HERE.
Have a read of what Shane had to say about his choice of band shirt and the importance of talking about and supporting mental health in the music industry:

Tell us about your Aus Music T-Shirt:
“My shirt of choice was my first ever band singlet from the super dooper Make Them Suffer crew from WA. They were the first band I seriously got invested in and to me they were just different from the rest of the bands that we’re coming out at the time, they’re incredible people. Hey Sean! ♡ “
Aus Music T-Shirt Day is a super important initiative in the Australian music industry. Why is it such an important initiative to you?
“For me personally I think any initiative that moves towards a more progressive and supportive environment is crucial for this day and age now, this is no different you know? Music is involved in so many people’s lives and so many wear their hearts on their sleeves for us and the audience, even the behind the scenes crew and venues putting it all together. They definitely deserve the recognition and support.”
We know that mental health can slip under the radar in this business. Why is it vital to talk about your mental health?
“I have Depression and GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder) so mental health to me is absolutely paramount. Not just for me and those around me, but for my son who I adore to the ends of the world. It had taken me a long time to get myself in the mindset that it’s okay to have bad days, I think to myself everyday where my life would be if I hadn’t got to talking though and found the help I needed. Breaking down the stigma can be hard, but it can be done and in case no one has told you today; You’re doing great and you are enough ♡ “
Shane has even had a chat with our very own Colourful Writer and Good Call Live Manager, Shannon! Have a listen HERE.
