In The Corner w/ J. Dewveall - Mental Health
My whole life I’ve been the guy that sneaks off into a corner at parties and finds one or two people to talk with the whole night. That’s just who I am. I’m a sucker for good conversation.
On top of that, I write music about a lot of difficult topics like depression and hope, faith and lack-there-of, politics, and justice. We’ve all seen how difficult it is to have meaningful conversations about these topics on social media and I wanted to start finding ways to talk about these things. They’re hard conversations, but I think we need to learn to have them again, in respectful ways.
So I decided to invite you to join me in the corner.
The idea is to shake up the typical online show format and turn it into something that’s more intimate. It’s not about getting to know me, but about getting to know each other.
There will be one topic per show. I’ll play a few songs centered on the theme, and in-between songs we’ll all share thoughts and discuss.
For the time being, these musical conversations are held on Zoom. They are limited to ten people per show so that we can actually have a chance to get into some good discussions. Don’t worry though, we can always add extra shows for certain topics that are in demand.
I really hope you join me in the corner soon.
Our first live conversation and show couldn't have gone any better in my mind. Thanks to all who participated and shared their stories, beliefs, and non-beliefs in what many call God. I began the evening full of nervousness and wrapped up with so much excitement for future conversations.
While this event was not well attended, the conversation was still fantastic. Thanks so much for diving into such a messy topic with me and, hopefully, the next time we talk politics we'll learn from more of you.
