Mental health in the music industry is vitally important. When we think of our favorite musicians in the limelight, we feel that their life is “perfect.” Sometimes these musicians are going through some of the same struggles that “normal people” go through daily. Being a touring musician is difficult. One of the resources that are available to help alleviate some pressure is Backline.
