August 14th, 2023

In a raw, unfiltered exchange with DoubleBlind's Shylah Ray, music icon Melissa Etheridge spills on her illustrious journey from her 1988 debut to two Grammy wins and creating American classics.

Beyond her tunes, Etheridge delves deep into her transformative experience with plant medicines and psychedelics, revealing an unexpected awakening after a potent cannabis cookie. Tragically, she touches on the heartrending loss of her son to an opioid overdose during the pandemic and how she found solace and purpose in connecting with her vast music catalog, streaming live sessions from her garage.

Dive into this interview on DoubleBlind for a raw look at the life of a musical maven, her take on today's music industry, and the healing power of psychedelics.

This interview is a part of DoubleBlind's Medicine Music series, in partnership with PORTAL, a campaign to destigmatize the responsible use of psychedelics on Propeller. For video interviews with musicians about their relationship to plant medicines, check out DoubleBlind's YouTube.
