(Mental Health Conversations): Matt Mucerino of CROSSING I’S DOTTING T’S

Editor's Note:  Matt Mucerino of Crossing I's Dotting T's converses with Madness To Creation to talk about mental health, music and their latest EP.  Crossing I's Dotting T's, out of Costa Mesa, California, recently released their EP, which is one of the most heartfelt EP's I've heard in quite sometime.  Their self-titled EP was inspired by Matt losing his cousin/best friend to cancer at the age of 21.  Their song "See You At Your Funeral" is specifically about his cousin/best friend, while the other songs touch on mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and not feeling wanted.  This EP is a wonderful listen as it mixes the 90's power rock along with the 2000's brand of post-hardcore/emo, and I see Crossing I's Dotting T's doing very well for themselves in the future.  Fans can fi...

Editor's Note:  Jim Gwynn of Chicago indie rock band JIP joined the Madness To Creation Podcast to talk about the band's legacy out of Chicago, making comedy music, and how he had a plethora of celebrities react to JIP's music as of late.  This was a hilarious conversation but also a meaningful and poignant discussion based on mental health, Jim losing his mother a couple of years ago, and celebrity roasts and whether or not comedians are as happy as they portray themselves to be.  The band will be releasing "Thought This Was Over" coming up and it includes work with Royce of Spacehog.  Fans can find JIP on Facebook, their official website, and Instagram. 0:50- Jim talking about Covid, and Local H at the Metro, and how the Metro is requiring the vaccine passport 1:37- How Jim has...

(Mental Health Conversation) Madness To Creation Podcast Ep. 49: Chad Ward of ROADIE RELIEF FUND

Editor's Note:  Legendary roadie Chad Ward joins us on the 49th episode of the Madness To Creation Podcast.  In this episode, Chad discusses how he founded the Roadie Relief Fund, which helps roadies and those in the music industry with expenses incurred during the Covid-19 pandemic.  Far too often, we don't think about all that goes into a concert.  Sometimes we think the ticket money goes directly towards the band.  That couldn't be further from the truth.  The band/artist has many expenses to keep the machine going.  They have to pay for venue rental, they might have to sell an x amount of tickets in order to break even, and they have to pay for roadies who set up the concerts, along with soundboard people and tour managers, public relation agents and the list goes on and on.  Chad ...
