OUR MUSIC MISSION
Music is at the core of the Rock and Recovery™ mission. That's because music is such an essential part of our human existence. Listening to music has the potential to invoke profound change in each one of us. It can boost your mood, reduce stress, and improve your health and overall well-being.
All of us here at Rock and Recovery™ believe that music can become a valuable partner in your overall recovery strategy. Our music is hand-picked – no algorithms here – and is designed to promote emotional healing, mental wellness, and spiritual connection for you.
The songs are generally upbeat -- without triggers -- that are complemented by messages of hope and inspiration. The purpose of the music is to provide positive energy to the listening experience.
The R&R music mix is a well-balanced combination of genres including classic rock, Americana, R&B, pop, country, and adult alternative spanning nearly 75 years of recorded music, including old favorites, brand new artists, and more. In a given hour you might hear Eric Clapton, Gary Clark Jr., Bonnie Raitt, Brandi Carlile, Goo Goo Dolls, Avett Brothers and so much more.
We believe exposure to music can be life-changing for individuals who have experienced trauma, grief, addiction-recovery, or a mental health disruption.
Inspirational Quotes About The Power of Music
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything. Plato
Where words fail, music speaks. Hans Christian Andersen
As neither the enjoyment or nor the capacity of producing notes are faculties of the least use to man … they must be ranked among the most mysterious with which he is endowed. Charles Darwin
Without Music, Life Would Be a Mistake. We listen to music with our muscles. We keep time to music involuntary, even if we are not consciously attending to it, and our faces and postures mirror the narrative of the melody and the thoughts and feelings it provokes. Friedrich Nietzsche
Music should be an essential part of every analysis. Carl Jung
I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. I get the most joy out of life out of music. Albert Einstein
Music is life itself. What would this world be without music? No matter what kind it is. Louis Armstrong
My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.” Martin Luther
Music does a lot of things for a lot of people. It’s transporting, for sure. It can take you right back, years back, to the very moment certain things happened in your life. It’s uplifting, it’s encouraging, it’s strengthening. Aretha Franklin
Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours. Elton John
Music is like a huge release of tension. James Taylor
Music is to the soul what words are to the mind. Modest Mouse
A great song should lift your heart, warm the soul and make you feel good.” Colbie Caillat
Music can lift us out of depression or move us to tears – it is a remedy, a tonic, orange juice for the ear. But for many of my neurological patients, music is even more – it can provide access, even when no medication can, to movement, to speech, to life. For them, music is not a luxury, but a necessity.
We live in specialized times now, so we tend to think of arts and medicine as different areas with very little overlap, but that wasn’t always the case. In the case of Ancient Greek culture, they designated Apollo as the God of both medicine and music and in a lot of primitive cultures the role of physician and musician were played by the same person. Richard Kogan, M.D.
