When you’re feeling blue, it takes time to bring yourself up out of the pits. If you’re looking for a drug-free mood lifter in under 8 minutes, then you’ve got it with this perfectly named tune by Gov’t Mule. Also lovingly known as “Mule” by fans, this southern rock band is a side project for The Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody. There is everything to love about this song, but what hooked me is this lyric...
“Soulshine is better than sunshine. It’s better than moonshine. It’s damn sure better than rain.”
YES! If there is a song better suited for Music to Save a Lost Soul, I have yet to find it! This song has got it all… a mellow intro, groovy bass line, powerful vocals, killer guitar solos, and lyrics to get you out of whatever depressive mood you’re in. So lost souls, remember to let your soul shine!

Named after Belinda Carlisle, solo artist and lead singer for The Go-Gos, making music has always been second nature to Belinda M. Growing up in a household that was largely influenced by Filipino culture, it was impossible for her to avoid belting out a few tunes into a karaoke mic at an early age. After her parents discovered she could play piano by ear at age 4, lessons promptly began. She later started writing poetry and playing guitar, which eventually lead to her becoming a singer/songwriter.
For Belinda, writing and listening to music has always been an essential creative outlet and place of solace. She released her debut EP, “I’m Not Broken” in October 2016, and continues to write and release new music. Her lyrics have been recognized by “American Songwriter Magazine” and her music is featured on the award-winning “Women Of Substance Radio and Podcast.” Check out Belinda’s music and learn more at www.belindammusic.com

Mella’s “Find Me” evokes the most intense feelings of first love, the purest of love. The feeling that you can’t possibly live without the other. The feeling that there is one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else, even better than yourself…

Spring has (finally) sprung, and in my neck of the woods, that means weekend outings to local wineries. In my book, there is nothing better to nurture the soul on a beautiful spring day than to enjoy a delightful glass of vino with live music and friends…
