Touring and Mental Health: The Music Industry Manual, an in-depth guide edited by London-based psychotherapist and former booker Tamsin Embleton, has gotten an official release date. The 600-plus-page book collects insights from therapists, artists, performance coaches, psychologists, and other specialized health and wellness experts. It arrives on March 23 via Omnibus Press.
In addition to her work as a therapist and writer, Embleton co-founded the Music Industry Therapist Collective. She was inspired to start pursuing psychotherapy from her own experience working in the music industry. Nile Rodgers, Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden, and Radiohead’s Philip Selway are all among those interviewed in Touring and Mental Health.
