About Us

"Without music, life would be a mistake." -- Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Music often plays a role in defining our most significant moments, whether they are times of challenge or of celebration. The power of music unites across all boundaries and limits and offers freedoms that otherwise may remain elusive--- the freedom to connect with our own emotions and with each other, the freedom to be in the moment fully, the freedom to validate our own experiences and to better understand the world around us. In short, music inspires the freedom to enjoy our lives more completely and to embrace all the ways that SoundAffects us.

Thank You

I am deeply honored and profoundly grateful that is a collaborative effort. The time, energy, talents, resources, support and creativity that fills every corner of this site are nothing less than true gifts. I believe that there are no coincidences in life, no accidental meetings--- and I have special appreciation that my path has crossed with those whose talents are making this vision a reality: Jenni Mehlenbacher, Alice Barkwell, Matt Boltz, Blair Bryant, Traci Curtis, Tracie Galinski, Lorena Gyulai, Wendy Herbst, Emily Ignacio, Scott Joffe, Dave Kender, Ami Lieberman, Lauren Patrie, Janet Reid Boltz, Darcy Sachs, Linda Spielman, Lindsay Walls and Angeline Vuong

Thank you to those who taught me to speak my truth, to share my gifts, to dream big while taking baby steps forward--- always forward--- and to believe in the power of music and the music in both sound and silence.

Thank you to the musical artists for opening your hearts and sharing your work with world. We are indebted. Thank you to the songwriters, producers, recording engineers, A&R folks, publicists, managers, street teams and everyone involved in cultivating artists' careers. Your contributions are equally valued.

And, last but definitely not least, thank YOU for reading this, for listening, and for being part of the family. (Be sure to sign up for our mailing list!) May we celebrate together all the ways that SoundAffects our lives!

I hope this finds you well and happy!

Warm regards,
Lauren Jonik
