Jo Davidson:The Healing Powers of Music


Jo Davidson (her piano solos on Tell the Story are healing in and of themselves, and she has a new collection of classical pieces on the way; she also interviews health and spirituality experts on her podcast called Zentertainment Talk Radio)-Alice Braga (writer-artist, life coach and owner of

Perhaps it is true that one can’t be a healer unless one was a victim or a sick soul who found a way into redemption. More and more I am channeling my energy to balance my writing from totally ‘music trivia” stuff to discussions that touch the soul.

New York based musician Jo Davison is a recent discovery. I love solo piano music. There is something about a composition that is stripped to the bones, leaving it with just the power of the melody and its sound dynamic. It is like looking at an x-ray of a plant leaf. The intricate shapes make you realize the beauty of the universe and how an higher power shaped the things around us right from the start of the first light in the universe.


Music that Transports and Heals

For years now I have dedicated my heart to music that is not just there to amuse you but as a source of inspiration. There is a kind of music that really does something to your psyche and this is what I am trying to pin down here. Of course people who experience life differently would never relate. But then again have you ever heard of ‘soul-stirring’ music or such term?

You will meet more of that kind in this blog. I really don’t want to useĀ  the term music as a main source of this inspiration. It could also be something brought about by the kind of sound- not really musical in form can also be a source of interest. But once a skillful person transform that science into organized sound then that’s where sorcery takes place.

Music that heals is really the interest in this blog. I know that musicians can make a difference in this world as a source of healing and beauty. Too long have we been exposed to violence and deterioration that we think it is cool. Just like our home situation. Abuses can be justified once prolonged. Like the ugliness of the evening news. I think that we must seek solace in something that calms and beautifies the soul.

As they say…you are what you eat.
