I’ve been writing since I was ten years old. Unfortunately, the amount of writing has fluctuated throughout the years, due to having an exhausting, demanding ful
l-time job. Despite my schedule being so packed, I have somehow managed to have time to attend concerts, research artists, and listen to music.
After being diagnosed with major depressive disorder and anxiety, I realized how much I had neglected my writing since graduating college. In order to regain the joy I had when I previously wrote, I needed to write about something I was passionate about. I soon realized music was the key.
Whenever I reflect on the memories of my life, I can always associate a moment to a song, a melody, or a lyric. In some of those instances, music has been the only thing that has helped me get through the good and bad times. Music also helps me communicate with people. At a show, I can converse with a stranger about the artist. In a bar, I can play some tunes on a jukebox and set the vibe for the evening. When I’m running, I can be pushed to go faster from the beat of a song. As you can see, there are many ways music can place itself in your life, sometimes without even realizing.
My mission is to provide readers with a variety of stories, information, and perspectives on the one thing that can connect us: music.
