MUSIC NEWS: LIFE Drummer Stewart Baxter Launches ‘KEEP TALKING’: Mental Health & Music Podcast
LIFE drummer Stewart Baxter has teamed up with Soundsphere Magazine for the KEEP TALKING podcast. The podcast discusses music and mental health and the first episode in the series was released last week.
The opening episode sees Baxter speaking to Primal Scream bassist Simone Marie Butler. Topics covered during the episode include her early musical memories, experiences as a bass player and also the #letthemusicplay campaign for which Simone has been a spokesperson for.
Speaking about the podcast, Baxter says: “When I’m touring with LIFE I meet so many wonderful and interesting people, but we rarely get a chance to have a proper chat between the constant movement. Allowing time to talk and listen is an important thing, right now more than ever. These podcasts are an open and honest discussion about life, art, and everything in-between, and a chance for myself and my guests to take time out to just hang out and catch up.”
The series, which has been supported through funding from Disabled Entrepreneurs Network and commissioned by Soundsphere, will also see Baxter talking to Lee Kiernan (IDLES), Jehnny Beth, Chris Slorach (METZ) and more during the series.
