Host: Miranda George (@mirandageorge)

There’s no way to ease into the description for this Musochat without making it sound like a Zoloft commercial. Trumpet player, singer, writer, and uncomfortable discussion enthusiast Miranda George will lead a discussion on (and bring together) musicians who struggle with mental illness. We will share our stories, where we think it all began, our low points, and our sources of light, including all of the ways in which we cope. This is not only going to be an important discussion for musicians who struggle with mental illness, but also for those who are friends, family members, teachers, and fellow musicians. In order to encourage participation, those who wish to tweet anonymously, feel free to make a fake Twitter account for this. Let’s talk.
