Did EDM kill Avicii?
This month GQ magazine ran an article asking if EDM music was in part responsive for the death of Avicii. The article, available in newsagents now, reports that metal health issues are not exclusive to those at the top of the music industry. The article cites recent research by CAMRI scholars Sally Cross and George Musgrave on behalf of Help Musicians UK, Britain’s leading independent music charity. The research indicated that musicians may be up to three times more likely to experience depression compared to the general public.
The full article in available from newsstands now, and more information on the study can be found on the Help Musicians UK website.
