Mental Health with Metal Guitarist Simone Dow - Part 1

Wednesday, 13 September 2023 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm
Simone Dow is a red headed caucasian woman on a stage holding and playing a black electric guitar, she wears glasses and a black sequinned jacket and is pulling a screaming face as she leans down towards the camera. There are purple lights behind her.

"My chronic pain condition only drives me further to succeed," says guitarist Simone Dow of the prog-metal band @voyagerau (who won ninth place at the @Eurovision 2023 contest). Known as a firecracker on stage, she brings an energy to her performances unmatched by her peers.

Simone likens music to a ‘cathartic warm hug’, a source of comfort throughout a long history of physical and mental health conditions.

Tune in to Part 1, today on our radio show Brainwaves at 5pm (AET) with host @FlicManning on @3CR Community Radio!
