Episode 4: Joel Pack
Joel Pack is a musician to his core. From a young age he began singing and writing songs, his personal brand of therapy. As a teenager, Joel dropped out of a band right before they got signed (and rose to international fame). When Joel’s next band got signed, in a cruel twist of fate, they were dropped amidst a corporate shakeup. Joel felt cursed by a long chain of perceived failures, which triggered a descent into drugs, depression, and suicidal ruminations. His life was saved when a young woman from his past got on a plane for a date and later became his wife and the mother of his children, and they built a future together.
