"I am terrified. Are you?" "Yes. We are both terrified." | Making Music and Magic with ROBERT HALLOW – The Invisible Cabaret Podcast: Mental Health & The Arts
Theatre-makers and mental health geeks Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose are joined by singer-songwriter and composer, Robert Hallow, of the alt-folk-rock band, Robert Hallow and the Holy Men. This charming chap talks about catharsis, music as safe space, and the importance of creating in a community. We also learn about Dungeons and Dragons. NO NERDS ALLOWED.

Part of what I’ve struggled with in terms of mental health is an inability to control myself, which is what played into addiction stuff, which is what has led to some really damaging behaviours that I’ve shown for a long time and the fear of being able to control myself is big. And so when you’re doing something, which requires you to pour out all of your emotion, there’s a part of you that goes, ‘This is bad.’Robert hallow
