On this weeks episode I sit down with Arlene Bailey.
Arlene, at just 16 years of age left her home in Sallins to head on the road as a singer in a band.
Arlene talks to me about her life on the road and a pressure of travelling the world had on her, her body and her mind. She tells me about her darkest times an how at one point she contemplating suicide but, she also tell me about her highlights and her time in Nashville and the Middle East. She talks to me about being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and how she’s finally in a place where she now understands herself yourself and how performing keeps her going.
