Music On Your Own Terms 079 - Simone Dow - A Voyage To The Last Continent
This episode I'm stoked to be talking with Simone Dow, guitarist with the awesome prog band Voyager from Australia. Simone talks about her family's move from Scotland, getting a scholarship for classical guitar, and subsequently getting into metal and never looking back. We hear about life on the road, endorsement deals, and what it means to be signed to a record label in today's DIY world. In addition, Simone graciously shares her experiences with chronic migraines, and how she manages practicing and playing shows, along with getting the word out about the organization Migraine Australia, as well as the condition itself.
