Surprise! Our 14th Issue of Mindful Melody is out now!
As we say goodbye to 2022, we look back at some of the highlights from our trip to The Long Road Festival in August, which includes a couple of in-depth interviews with country stars The Cadillac Three and LOCASH.
Our cover star is Kel Adore, a pop prodigy with a killer voice, and who discusses a variety of topics with David, from the key lessons she's learnt as she's transitioned into adulthood, to the role that acceptance has played in her mental health journey.
In addition to this, Maxim speaks to Wyoming's country trailblazer, Ian Munsick, about the process behind his recent singles, the importance of faith to his wellbeing, and the powerful escapism that his music facilitates.
Also in this issue, David delves into the recent trend of artists cancelling shows for their mental health, and offers up a solution that could help protect the artists while still keeping label execs happy. Maxim reviews Larry Fleet's Live Sessions Vol. 1, while David celebrates Megan Thee Stallion's new website dedicated to improving fans' mental health. We're also delighted to feature a special guest post from Scarlet River PR founder, Rachel Sellick, which includes an Artist Spotlight of UK singer-songwriter, Olivia Lynn.
Our mission is to showcase great music that we feel can help listeners to improve their wellbeing, whether through the lyrics, the music alone, or through the artist's personal story - the artists, articles and playlists in this edition epitomise this.
We want Mindful Melody to be as helpful as possible to as many people as possible, so we have made all our articles available to read for free online. But we really appreciate anyone who supports us by getting a print edition as well, which will be available to purchase in the coming weeks!
As always, we want to say a big, big thank you to our long-time sponsors, Scarlet River PR, for their continued support! It goes without saying that Mindful Melody wouldn't be what it is today without Rachel and the amazing team there. And, last but not least, we want to thank YOU for coming along for the ride and supporting us on this journey. We get so much enjoyment from putting these magazines together and we hope they bring as much joy to you as they do to us!
