VISSIA: Music Is The Ultimate Connector

Wed Feb 24 2021

We pulled off the Trans-Canada Highway at Field, a tiny community of 169 people in the Kicking Horse River valley of southeastern British Columbia. It’s the kind of stop you make to get out, stretch your legs and use the restroom before getting back in the car to keep heading west to most likely Vancouver. […]

As part of our music wellness series, Australian pop fusion duo President Street shared some of their own experiences of the past year from the other side of the world.

Allegra: Writing Music During Lockdown Kept Me Sane

When I was first approached to speak to Neon Music regarding the Music Wellness program, I was immediately overwhelmed with all the things I wanted to speak about.

A new year and a new chance for change. Yes, 2021 might not be off to the flying start that we all hoped for. However, if the last 12 months have taught us anything it’s that no matter how bad things get, there’s always something to smile about. Whether it’s the glowing Winter sunsets we’ve […]

Attempting Perfection In a Pandemic

Wed Jan 20 2021
