What’s life like for an introvert who chooses to be on stage performing on a regular basis? It can be a vulnerable existence, one that requires levels of self-promotion and constant putting-yourself-out-there. And in fact, you don’t have to be on a stage to be performing and to feel the pressures that come with it.
In this episode, I chat with Andy Mort, a UK-based musician and writer also known as Atlum Schema. He’s a podcaster, HSP (Highly Sensitive Person), and introvert. His latest album is titled “Year 0” and you’ll hear one of the tracks at the end of our conversation.
“Andy’s daring and innovative approach to creating and releasing modern music has proved him and his alter-ego Atlum Schema to be a bright beacon in the depths of British music today – watch out.” – Bearded Magazine
In describing his blog and podcast, Andy writes, “Sheep Dressed Like Wolves is for people I define as Reluctant Leaders and Gentle Rebels who long to make an impact in a sometimes strange, absurd, and often overwhelming world… I want to de-construct and explore this stuff and to help introverts and highly sensitive people recognize and overcome what is holding us back from living with the passion, purpose, and meaning we seek.”
