The Best Songwriters of April 2023

In a time in which the world feels like it’s falling apart, Music has a way of bringing people together. Music has the ability to evoke emotions and transport us to different places and times. It can be a source of comfort, motivation, and inspiration. Whether you’re feeling happy, sad, or somewhere in between, listening to music can have a profound effect on your mood.

When we listen to music, our brains release dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps to regulate our mood and emotions. This is why music can be so effective at boosting our mood and making us feel more positive.

Listen to these new songs I’ve just added to my playlist and see how it affects your mood? You might be surprised at just how powerful it can be!
