Podcast Special: 20 of our favourite artists offer positive advice for lockdown


For this Nialler9 Podcast special, we wanted to bring some good vibes and positivity as we face six weeks of lockdown here in Ireland.

So we asked some of our favourite music people to offer some positive advice or affirmation for the listener heading into lockdown again. What bit of advice would they like to hear? What positive words would you like to share with others?

This hour is like a pep talk with kind words from CMAT, Mary Wallopers, Soda Blonde, Murli, Sylvan Esso, Tolu Makay, Tebi Rex, Erica-Cody, Mango and more as listed in order of appearance below. The music credits are also below.

We hope you find something to take with you during lockdown and beyond.
