Last night’s live session with Tom Robinson Music was brilliant and intense in equal measure. It was such a blast to be able to play this music live with such an amazing group of musicians – Chris, Dave, Zac, Matt, Dee, Matt, you all covered yourselves in glory last night – and it was a thrill to finally meet Tom who has been supporting my music with BBC Music Introducing since the very beginning.
I didn’t expect that the inteview would get so personal about depression but in that moment I realised that there was nothing to hide, that if getting this platform to play my music means anything at all, it means using my voice in the service of something bigger than me. There was a lot of love in the studio and was good to talk about the The CALMzone, which both Tom and I big supporters of, and to say out loud that it’s really important we don’t take each other for granted. Don’t assume your pals know you’re there from them, tell them. Don’t wait for them to call, pick up the phone. More love. x
You can listen again to the show here, session starts at 35mins in.
Big love and let’s look after each other!
