Dear Songwriters & Makers of Music,

Here in the United States this has been a really frightening week.

It’s hard to know what to do.

How much should I pay attention to what is happening?

How much can I tolerate paying attention to what is happening?

How do you address the current situation in the most effective manner possible?

The protests were beautiful and moving.

How many of these protests have to take place in order to for the current situation to shift?

What else can be done?

Because listening to music has always been one of my primary coping skills/soothing strategies I turn to you Bruce Springsteen, M.I.A., Bob Seger, Joni Mitchell, Conor Oberst, Melanie Safka, Ezra Furman, Ani Difranco, Tom Petty, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Neil Young, Grimes, Zack de la Rocha, Angel Olsen, J Mascis, Liz Phair, etc. etc. etc.

I’m scared.

We need your help.

Music has power.

Let’s not give up.

Love you all,

April
