Judah Akers from Judah & The Lion sat down for a conversation with the crew from The What Podcast while at Chattanooga, Tennessee’s Moon River Festival over the festival.
Akers chats about the defining moment in 2018 when they covered “Mr. Brightside” with Drew Holcomb and got a crowd of 10,000 people moving, the importance of mental health when you’re in a band, and how discussing mental struggles has come to be more acceptable than in years past. Such growing acceptance was evident even at Moon River, as Saturday headliner Caamp canceled their performance citing mental health as a primary reason they’re stepping back from touring.
As for Judah & The Lion, they’re out on the road throughout October and November, and you can get tickets to their upcoming shows here.
