How beautiful!! What a gift to give and share...
There are many talented musicians who devote their time and energy over and over again in support of our growing demand for private concerts. We’re especially honored that Darden Smith, a songwriter and artist, is partnering with us on Swan Songs Writing Sessions, a program that pairs a recipient with Darden to transform their life story into song. Together with the individual or family and friends, they collaborate to capture the recipient's story and uniqueness into the lyrics and melody of a song that can be sung and shared for years to come. If you would like to explore this option for a loved one, please email [email protected].
Dr. Tony Milesi, audiologist with RK Audiology in Austin, TX, shares information about the importance of hearing protection with KVUE.

What did you say? Austin doctor shares tips to prevent hearing damage at music festivals Whether it's foam plugs or custom-filtered plugs, it's important to use them when out in loud concert environments.
"The world has gotten louder, and it’s ruining people’s ears. If you’re looking for hearing protection for the occasional concert, club, or sporting event, affordable universal-fit earplugs like the Loop Experience Earplugs are an improvement over foam plugs.
But if you’re a professional musician or a frequent concert-goer, we suggest that you go to an audiologist and get custom-made earplugs..."
The Best Earplugs for Concerts While custom earplugs are best for pro musicians and regular concert-goers, we like the Loop Earplugs for the occasional concert, club, or spin class.

Just spent 6 weeks playing and recording with my friends, New Bohemians. It was our final day recording and Brad was about to take off for a gig when I said, “Aw, come on! One more jam, Brad. You start it.” He nodded and played this great part and I started singing about him to him with the biggest smile on my face just having fun. I was celebrating his generosity to stay and play one last song with me. But I never thought it would be our final song together. Our band’s very last jam was a playful song about Brad. I loved him. He taught me a lot.

"On a spring afternoon in Bankers Hill, San Diego, the soundscape is serene: Sea breeze rustles through the trees, and neighbors chat pleasantly across driveways.
Except for about every three minutes, when a jet blazes overhead with an ear-piercing roar.
A growing body of research shows that this kind of chronic noise — which rattles the neighborhood over 280 times a day, more than 105,000 each year — is not just annoying. It is a largely unrecognized health threat that is increasing the risk of hypertension, stroke and heart attacks worldwide, including for more than 100 million Americans..."

"Ayla Wing’s middle school students don’t always know what to make of their 26-year-old teacher’s hearing aids. The most common response she hears: “Oh, my grandma has them, too.”
But grandma’s hearing aids were never like this: Bluetooth-enabled and connected to her phone, they allow Ms. Wing to toggle with one touch between custom settings. She can shut out the world during a screeching subway ride, hear her friends in noisy bars during a night out and even understand her students better by switching to “mumbly kids.”
A raft of new hearing aids have hit the market in recent years, offering greater appeal to a generation of young adults that some experts say is both developing hearing problems earlier in life and — perhaps paradoxically — becoming more comfortable with an expensive piece of technology pumping sound into their ears..."
