030: Michi Tassey (Nature Shots) & Music Therapy
(Nature Shots) &
WELCOME TO THE EDUPUNX PODCAST!
Michi Tassey is a music therapist, the keyboardist and vocalist for People Like You, as well as the songwriter behind Nature Shots - her latest solo effort, with which she recently released her debut LP, Foreclosure. Foreclosure is an emotionally dense album. Throughout our conversation, Michi and I get into how channeling very personal source material can make for a very cathartic experience - especially when being present in the moments of which you're channeling.
We also dig into Michi's work as a music therapist, where she understandably gets to nerd out a bit about how music impacts the brain - spoiler: it all comes down to rhythm - and how music can literally help people heal from traumatic injury. It's truly one of the most educational and informative conversations I've had on this podcast, and I'm sure you will love the hell out of it.
- You get to hear a bunch of tunes from the new Nature Shots LP, "Foreclosure," on this episode!
- You hear the tunes, "three," "what is the word for when you are screaming and no one can hear?" and "a prayer; begging," throughout this episode.
