The Repeat Beat Poet (a.k.a PJ) is a friend of Ella’s from the London spoken word/live music scene. Ella often times reaches out to PJ for advice, as he is a performer with a crazy schedule who always seems to keep his work in balance with his own mental health. After many frank conversations about how to keep passion and play in line as independent artists, this is Ella and Repeat Beat’s first recorded discussion aiming to shed light on the topic. The conversation is for anyone who struggles with overworking or swinging between apathy and fits of passion for what they do to make a living.
We’ll be back next week with a normal episode between Joshua and Ella.
