Statement from Katie Woods why she love music: Music is one of the most universally shared experiences that has the ability to evoke emotion, heal, and take you to another place. I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of magic and other realms, so music has been a way for me to connect with that inherent need to feel something more than being human. I think it’s the only thing that ever gives me an indescribable sense of fulfilment, that I will be forever grateful for.

Statement from Renaissance Grrl why she love music: Music is important to me because it allows me to have a voice and share my feelings with the world. It's always been a friend when I’m down or going through troubled times. I feel music gives me a shoulder to lean on. I don’t know where I would be without it. It’s also massively important to me as my Dad, who I'm close with, used to play. He passed his musical talents down to me and it runs through my family.

Statement from The Birthday Letters why they love music: My love of music is inseparable from my love of songs - and I’m not always sure where the dividing line lies. I really believe the most powerful music is the closest we humans have to real alchemy, and for me, the lyrics come first. So when a song marries the two; an emotionally affecting melody and a sincerely communicated idea through the words, something quite mysterious and magical takes place. For me, all the best things in music say something powerful about ideas outside of the medium. Painters don’t tend to paint about painting. Music is no different. Ironically I think instrumental Jazz pianist Keith Jarrett said something along the lines of music should be written about life and not music. I’m really on board with this idea. In my own haphazard way, it’s at least what I tend to aim for.
