Rewired for Sound by Richard D Lewis

This week’s Song of the Week was recommended by MIA founder Robert Whitaker: “This song celebrates the transformative role of music in helping people survive and recover from extremely difficult times in their lives. For millions of people, the creation, performance, and enjoyment of music can be a powerful healing and stabilizing force in the world – sometimes even saving lives.”
