Commenting on the new episode, Baxter says: “Back in August 2020 I had the pleasure of catching up with one of my biggest inspirations, Jehnny Beth. I first witnessed Jehnny performing with her band Savages on the Jools Holland TV show back in 2012, a performance that made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, and that I talked about for weeks, months and years afterwards.”

“I quickly realised everything Jehnny did blew was going to be amazing, and the respect I have for her as an artist was only deepened when she invited my band LIFE to perform on the pilot of her new TV show ECHOES and I had a chance to meet her in person. Jehnny is a sweetheart, and a kind soul. An unparalleled artist who doesn’t ask for permission, or forgiveness.”

“In this conversation we got talking about anxiety and mental health and how this plays a part in art, Jehnny’s home and early life growing up in a theatre, working with Atticus Ross and Flood, her long term relationship with partner and collaborator Johnny Hostile, and how it felt to release her debut album and book in the middle of a global pandemic.”

A brand new podcast centered around touring, live music, lockdown and mental health presented by Stewart Baxter, (drummer in Hull based band LIFE) supported by funding from Disabled Entrepreneurs UKSoundsphere Magazine commissioned a locked-down Baxter to record a series of podcasts with the simple goal to re-connect, catch up, and check in with musicians and friends he has met along the way.

Launched in 2020, for the first two episodes Baxter spoke to Primal Scream bassist Simone Marie Butler, and Lee Kiernan of IDLES, with future episodes featuring Chris Slorach (METZ) and more TBA.

Commenting on the project, Baxter says: “When I’m touring with LIFE I meet so many wonderful and interesting people, but we rarely get a chance to have a proper chat between the constant movement. Allowing time to talk and listen is an important thing, right now more than ever. These podcasts are an open and honest discussion about life, art, and everything in-between, and a chance for myself and my guests to take time out to just hang out and catch up.”
