Longtime Los Angeles musician JD McGibney has a specific mission with his music, and that’s to help conquer the stigma surrounding mental health. Through his own journey with anxiety, McGibney realizes the power of facing one’s demons head-on. He also understands that it’s okay to talk openly about mental health issues.
McGibney’s latest release is a song called “Voices in the Dark,” featuring Chen Balbus of Orphaned Land. The powerful track is about hope, encouragement and “conquering our battlefields.” McGibney caught up with Audio Ink Radio for the latest Local Music Beat column to discuss the new single, his journey with anxiety, his love for making music and more.
