We’d like to thank Marc Cantone, singer and guitarist of indie band The City and Horses, for taking his time to talk about the band’s upcoming album, the stigma surrounding mental illness, how venues can be more inclusive, and how songwriting has made a positive impact on his life. Take a read of the interview below.
We have created a really short survey regarding Representation in Music that we’d really appreciate your input on! Let us know your thoughts here.

When I was fourteen, I attended my first show at the SOMA in San Diego. I went with my best friend Jeff, who had introduced me to punk rock. The show was Face To Face and Less Than Jake. I did not know what to expect. I was pretty excited and frightened to go to my first punk rock show and finally see the bands I had been listening to at home.
