Australian musician Dara Kristen Hayes, commonly known behind the deck as DJ TigerLily has revealed she's 'actually vegan because of music'.
The artist, who regularly speaks out about animal-rights on her second Instagram Our Soul Purpose, said she suffered from health-complication around during her tour.
'Reach out for help'
In the latest episode of the PBN podcast, Dara chats with Co-founder Robbie Lockie about Australia's meat-centric culture, her childhood, the climate crisis, and, of course, music.
"I'm actually vegan because of music because if I didn't run myself into the ground touring as a DJ like I did then I probably wouldn't have had to reach out for help and change my lifestyle," Dara states.
