When Damhnait Doyle released her first solo album in over a decade this year, I was thrilled! Even more so when I got to interview her, and then invite her on Digging In.
We talk about the pressure to look a certain way, aging as a women in show business, and the conversation we need to start having around alcohol in the arts. We also talk about what she reveals about her self in the songs on her new album 'Liquor Store Flowers', and how she found her way to being vulnerable.

Alli Walker realized one day that she wasn't making music that really mattered to her: "I was singing about booze, boys and break-ups because that’s what everyone else was singing about." So she made a change. Now she writes and performs 'mindful music' or 'conscious country' - songs that are authentic and uplifting, vulnerable and encouraging.
We talk about having a positive impact, how social media can affect your mindset, and the challenges that come with trying to change for the better.
You can follow Alli on Facebook @alliwalkermusic, on Twitter @alliwalker, and on Instagram @alliwalkermusic and follow the hashtags #mindfulmusic and #consciouscountry

Author James FitzGerald used his writing as a way to start counter-acting years of silence and stigma in his family. Having lost his grandfather to suicide, and almost losing his father to it as well, he broke the cycle for himself by facing the mental illness in his family and telling his story. He joins Allison to talk about how silence and shame only add to the pain, and how he learned to speak up and take care of himself.
