"Music has incredible power,” says KEXP Morning Show host John Richards. “I hear from listeners every day about a song or a lyric that helped them heal, process, grieve or just find the strength to go on.”

Through the Music Heals series, KEXP uses curated music, interviews, listener stories and live events to help people in our community understand they are not alone. Music can provide comfort, validation, encouragement, consolation, perspective, catharsis, and community, and the Music Heals series explores how music can also heal our bodies and lift our spirits.Use the navigation to the left to explore the different topics: Addiction, Cancer, Mental Health, and Death & Music.
