"Could never be a bad time for a good cry."
How often do we tell ourselves to keep it together, to keep a stiff upper lip, or to hide our true feelings? How often do we shame ourselves rather than allow ourselves to get vulnerable and seek connection?
In this episode, Emmeline sits down with singer-songwriter Jeffrey Michael Widman to talk about the raw, honest space from which he wrote his latest single, "Good Cry." They talk about the challenge of mental health during and after COVID, how to stay connected to one's creativity in the music industry, and why the quest for self-knowledge can be the most reliable source of inspiration for songs. they also talk about the double-edged sword of social media and the glory of 90s music!
