When the problems of the world loom so large, it can make the act of music production seem unimportant. But during these times, music is more important than ever by helping us connect and empathize with each other.

Over the last month or so, I've found it extremely difficult to find meaning in my musical work. In the face of enormous world challenges, twiddling around with sound has felt insignificant and purposeless. But after some reflection, I believe it is actually extremely important to continue to create. In this episode, I take you through my own struggles and how I am working to get passed them.

What's Going On - Marvin Gaye's classic album that has offered some insight and perspective.

Alicia Keys Tiny Desk Concert - I didn't mention this in the episode, but watching it reminded me of the joy and unity music can create.
