Each and every one of us has had all sorts of personal experiences with music…..we find ourselves calmed by it, excited by it, comforted by it, mystified by it and often haunted by it. Music can lift us out of depression or move us to tears. Some of us need music to start the day and as company when we drive, especially those of us who commute off-island to the city. Sometimes we just need it to calm our thoughts when we are done for the day, to usher us into the world of dreams at night.
In fact, music can work for us in more than one way–it can distract us from pain, it can boost our mood or revive old memories and it can even prompt the body to match its rhythms…yeah, that’s right…make us want to dance. It has tempo, rhythm, melody, harmony….so it stimulates the brain in many ways all at once.
Music can provoke your thoughts, set a mood, or put you on edge. It can be a release or an old friend that brings comfort…… or quite simply, it can be used to drive the neighbors crazy. Vashon’s music scene is rich with some of the most
incredible artists you will ever come across. Join us in recognizing our music community and getting to know them. Welcome to VashonMusic.Com! ~Pete~
