Lewis Capaldi has recently cancelled a string of upcoming concerts due to his struggle with mental and physical health. His decision highlights the growing trend among musicians to prioritize their mental well-being.
According to reports, the Scottish vocalist has stated that he requires a hiatus from performing live shows in order to simply be his regular self as a resident of Glasgow named Lewis
Many supporters of Lewis are showing their appreciation online for his decision to prioritize his mental health, even though some fans may have experienced financial losses.
There have been several popstars who have recently chosen to take a break from their careers, not just him.
Numerous well-known performers, such as Sam Fender, Wet Leg, and Arlo Parks, have cancelled their scheduled tours lately.
Does the fact that musicians are now willing to prioritize self-care indicate a shift in the music industry?
Help Musicians, a charity that provides mental health services for musicians, has noticed a rise in the number of individuals seeking assistance from its specialized program, Music Minds Matter.
Joe Hastings, the head of the organization, explains that although artists may seem to lead a glamorous and exciting life, the actual reality can be quite contrasting.
According to him, the music industry imposes a significant amount of work and stress on individuals, which is often not recognized enough.
The stress is immense due to demanding timetables, work hours that are not conducive to socializing, and frequent travel.
Prioritizing one’s health is crucial to prevent burnout.
Joe believes that it is crucial for well-known artists such as Lewis to share their personal struggles because it can have a significant impact on other musicians.
He encourages artists to view "pausing and reflecting" as a valuable investment towards their future success.
Ruth Royall, a DJ and producer in the drum and bass genre, shares the same opinion.
According to her, artists have been viewed as objects of trade for a considerable period, but there is an improvement in this aspect due to the increased discussions and awareness about mental health.
Ruth, who resides in Bristol, believes that Lewis made a very courageous choice, especially given the impact it will have on his fans and others.
According to her, she took some time off to ensure that she was fully prepared to embark on a month-long tour abroad, followed by a busy summer of performing at various festivals throughout the UK.
Due to the fast-paced nature of the music industry, I decided to take a break from social media and devote some time to being with my loved ones.
The majority of people may not have firsthand experience of constantly performing at different events, but Tamsin Embleton, a music therapist, believes that we can all understand and empathize with the stress that artists encounter.
Prior to pursuing a career as a therapist, she was employed as a booking agent within the music industry where she gained insight into the exhaustion that comes with being on tour.
According to her, it is essential to deliver your best performance consistently, even when you are in an unfamiliar setting with strangers.
Lewis has decided to cancel all of his scheduled performances until Glastonbury, according to Tamsin who believes this is a means of managing his workload.
It is crucial to pace yourself when planning a tour for an artist. It is important to consider the challenges that they may face during the tour.
The focus should be on achieving something that can be easily handled and maintained, instead of pushing yourself beyond the capabilities of your physical and mental state due to excessive ambition.
