088: Arjun and Tara — When Music Runs in the Family 1920 1080 Chase Jennings

Hi everyone. I want to start by telling you that I am so excited for this special interview because it’s like none I have done before. My guest today is a mega superstar who I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing on numerous occasions in the US, Canada, and now on Zoom, and he is being joined by his one and only mom. This show is called That’s Total Mom sense for a reason. I think this his first interview with his mom so it’s going to fun for all of us.

So the artist I’m talking about is Arjun Coomeraswamy – or just Arjun.

He is a London-based singer, songwriter and music producer. He has become known for his fusion of contemporary Western and Eastern sounds, combining soulful R&B with elements of South Asian music. This formula has made him a huge hit with Asian youth across the globe. As a pioneer in the Hindi/R&B Fusion genre, Arjun has set the standard for other young Asian artists now following in his footsteps.

He is a multi-instrumentalist, capable of playing the guitar, piano, bass, drums and flute, on top of singing and beat-boxing.

He is currently the most viewed UK Asian artist on YouTube, with approx one billion views, and has a strong social media presence with over 1.5 million Facebook fans and half a million Instagram followers.

He was signed to India’s biggest record label T-Series. ‘I’ll Be Waiting’, his first single released on the T-Series channel and racked up over 65 million views, charted at #1 in the iTunes India Chart and spent over 40 weeks in the UK BBC Asian Download Chart.

He signed with Island Records, a branch of Universal Music, in September 2016 and released his first single in 2017, his second single Vaadi in 2018 and his debut album “Closer to Home” that same year, which reached No 1 on the Itunes R&B chart in 24 hours.

He has a truly international fan-base, and as a result has had the opportunity to perform for fans all over the world to crowds of up to 200,000, in countries including the UK, Ireland, France, Holland, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, US, Canada, India, Sri Lanka, UAE, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Kenya, Tanzania, Mauritius, Suriname, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

I’m sure many of you know my guest by way of her popular podcast produced by Dear Media called Raising Good Humans.

013: Terri Bacow — Mom Guilt Stops Here – Why We Feel It and How to Deal

013: Terri Bacow — Mom Guilt Stops Here – Why We Feel It and How to Deal 1024 512 Chase Jennings

No one likes feeling guilty. It’s just not a happy place to be. Yet somehow mothers seem to be riddled with what is called “mom guilt” all the time. We sacrifice so much for our children, but despite that, we still feel like we’re not doing enough. For some, they feel guilty for not being able to take care of their children because they’re working, and for others, they long to be out in the workforce because they feel they’re homebound with their kids too much. Either way, it’s a difficult conundrum to grapple with all the time.

On this episode, I am joined by Dr. Terri Bacow, PhD, who is a clinical psychologist on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. She has deep expertise in using skills-based therapies to treat anxiety, depression, and related disorders, including postpartum depression and anxiety. Dr. Bacow is dedicated to empowering each client with the concrete, sustainable coping skills to better manage overwhelming thoughts and emotions. She especially enjoys working with young adults (including college students) and parents, including moms and dads adjusting to new parenting or interested in parent coaching. Ready to shed the mom guilt, and hone in on your greatest, most powerful self? Let’s do this!
