I Don’t Usually Ask For Help But I am Now… Please Help!

I almost never ask for help, but right now I’m reaching out to those who care about my music and would like to see real progress in its progression to mainstream. Here is how you can help me make that happen.

About 5 years ago I started a series of concerts that were to support positive music artists like myself and promote healthy lifestyle choices like yoga, surfing and healthy food.  Over the years the event’s name has changed from “Enlightened Entertainment” to “Three Waves A Day” and now to “The Feel Good Festival.”  This concert series and your support of it holds one of the keys to my success as it not only creates major exposure of my music , but also empowers at risk youth through performances and recorded music.

But why is music so important?

According to The Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine “the average teen listens to 2.5 hours of music every day and is exposed to 35,000 references to substance abuse every year.”  “These references have a noticeable impact on their behavior, mood and personal identity.”  In another study of university students, The American Psychological Society published a report stating, “Research has definitively proved the link between youth violence and violent music.”

According to these reports “Music has a greater impact on human behavior than any other form of media including TV, Movies and Video Games.” As such, the goal of the Feel Good Music Project is to impact this behavior by providing positive music through a platform for up and coming positive music artists to be heard by the masses and encourage healthy lifestyle choices, which will reduce violence and drug abuse as well as boost confidence and self-esteem in our youth.

FGMP plans to achieve this through an ongoing effort, which includes a 20 date live music tour called the Feel Good Festival as well as a compilation CD that will be released and sold to the public and donated to at risk youth programs like the Boys & Girls Club of America and local schools.  The Festival, in its 4th year of successful operation, aligns itself with health conscious sponsors to expose more people to positive music and healthy lifestyle choices including food & beverage, acrobatic yoga demonstrations, ice breakers and crowd interaction games.
