A Passion Fearless of Limitation

3 Mar

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”

In a world sometimes clouded by fear and endless worry, there is still one bullet-proof method, in my opinion, to deal with it all. Expressive Art- whether it be music, painting, sculpture, photography, dance or writing.

Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting a musician who has truly captured the soul behind expressive art. His raw lyrics, strong stance, calm beat, soothing voice, and genuine honesty have given me a hundred plus reasons to keep his music playing over and over again. His work has helped me find comfort in my experiences with love, trust, pain, fear and peace. And for that, I am thankful. He sings, he writes, he plays guitar… but most importantly, he does it with passion.

His name is Clarence Greenwood. His music is Citizen Cope.

Clarence Greenwood, Citizen Cope

If you’re not already, go and type his name into Google so you can enjoy a nice tune while you finish reading this post. Or if you’re lazy, just click here for one of my favorites; Sideways, Healing Hand, Let the Drummer Kick or Pablo Picasso.

I enjoy music from all styles, genres and cultures, but the way to my heart is to elicit emotion. Make me feel something, give me goosebumps, make me move. Using his own inspirations and experiences, Clarence began the “rebel street music” movement and has since delivered an unforgettable spiritual sound on and off stage.

So whether it’s a good day or bad, music with passion has the power to heal, to elevate, to love and to inspire. What music do you love?

**Huge thanks to 92.3 WTTS for hosting the studio show. Also, be sure to check out Citizen Cope’s latest album, The Rainwater LP- it hit stores yesterday! And hopefully the next time I meet Clarence is over a cup of coffee and a guitar lesson- I have many questions.
