There’s something really powerful about live music. A live environment creates an emotional intensity and a powerful sense of shared experience that can’t be replicated anywhere else.

Finding ‘your’ band or musician(s) that allows you to connect with yourself (again) and the way they hold a mirror in front of you, so you can see yourself in a new light and discover parts of yourself that you lost or forgotten about is super special.

There is something so thrilling for me not knowing what will be played next, whether it is on the radio or from a play list. It reminds me how I felt when I was a kid dancing around Mum’s kitchen and discovering the magic of music for the first time.

Inspired by my podcast interview with Bonnie Hardie, who is currently homeless but not powerless, and her courage and strength to constantly show up, no matter what is going on in her world, has got me thinking; am I being ignorant or oversensitive when it comes to these issues?!
