This episode we meet up with Mike Mains while on tour at Ardmore Music Hall in support of the their latest release Memory Unfixed, and sit down for an open, vulnerable and courageous conversation.
Phillip explores the Mike Mains & the Branches music catalog and the journey they've taken their listeners on, and where this new record lands. However the time between when this record's music was written, and when it was released was a difficult but important time for Mike.
Mike shares the struggles he was dealing with around addiction, abuse and depression leading him to have to take a break and work through all of that. Now on the other side, and "starting to like himself", Mike is sharing his story on stage and with us here in hopes that it can help others know there is hope and there is help.
Please take a moment to listen to his amazing story and enjoy his brilliant music. And be sure to check in on those you care about to make sure they're ok.
