  • A Pre-Tour Panic Attack from The Lovebirds’ Lindsay White

    Posted in

    I sit up in bed sobbing and trying to catch my breath. I tell myself to get a grip, but panic attacks don’t like being told what to do, so I ride it out. My sweet girlfriend Audrie looks concerned as she shushes me in whispers, puts her hands on my shoulders and arms, and […]

It continues the singer/songwriter chops he flashed on Columbus, with mostly the same pared-down […]

The world’s largest music industry conference celebrated its 28th year of existence last month and like any ambitious young person seeking to make their way into the wider world, it is clearly experiencing a number of growing pains.
