"Positive Music is timeless and full of energy and light. Positive music brings people together, it doesn’t discriminate or exclude people because of their racial, spiritual or socio-cultural background. Positive music inspires people to work together for the greater good. Positive music heals, it doesn’t steal."

"Stay true to yourself, don't try to be something you are not. Do not let the outside forces try to change you to something they want you to be.

"The power of music can culturally, morally, and emotionally influence our society. Not only the way we dress, influencing style, the way we listen to music, Medicine (therapeutic soothing), it has also brought about more socio-cultural change than most people realize. Farm Aid, Live Aid, We Are The World, Concert for Bangladesh; everytime there is a catastrophe anywhere in the world, you can count on world class artists and musicians to step up and lend a…

Posted on September 8, 2020 at 12:18pm 0 Comments

Beat scholar, poet, filmmaker, musician Thomas Antonic talks about music, poetry and the Beat Generation

"Because the Beats addressed many issues already in the 50s that we still have to deal with and are still red hot. Simple as that. And since mainstream writing is still as conservative as ever and still lacks courage, it’s still inspiring and refreshing to read Beat poetry and all their successors throughout the decades."

Q&A with Boston-based Barrett Anderson - Intensity, originality, creativity, and passion are at the heart of band's philosophy

Posted on September 2, 2020 at 10:35pm 0 Comments

"I believe Blues, when done well, has always provided that joy – that release – for people. This is not sad music. This is music that allows people to come together, to communally surpass their troubles, and escape from their problems. Blues music gives people energy, it gives people life. Blues music – when done right – connects with people intrinsically, it matters, and it makes someone happy. It brings joy. That is how I hope my music affects…

Q&A with the world renowned keyboard player Rick Wakeman, released the new album “The Red Planet”
