Soundcore Stories | How music therapy can make a big impact on your life

This week, we sat down with Bryde, a singer-songwriter from Wales, to talk about using music therapy and meditation to be at peace with your work. We also discuss how music affects the mind, dealing with competition, and how mental health is at the forefront of everyone’s lives.

Get to Know Bryde

Bryde creates dreamy indie-rock and has worked with producers like Jolyon Thomas (Royal Blood) and Bill Ryder-Jones (Hooton Tennis Club, Saint Saviour). She has also found extensive support from radio stations across the UK, including BBC Radio Wales, Radio X, and Huw Stephens on Radio 1.

Byde’s biggest track to date is “To Be Brave” which has more than 3.4 million streams:

How does music make you feel? Let us know! :point_down:


I am (home) and was (work) listening to music all time of the day.
I have some preferred radio station from the internet I am listening to.
And of course I own a private collection of music which is growing steadily.

There is a lot to be detected when I find an unknown composer.
Though the “classical world” seems limited, there is still “terra incognita” :grinning:


Wonder if the music therapy is similar to the threads I did months ago about they can have potential impact on different functions of your life. Will try to watch it soon…Going to go back to bed.

I listen to music almost all day as well. Whether it is radio at work, driving home or maybe catching a few tunes as I work around the house as well. With my self diagnosed ADHD, I know it helps me concentrate sometimes.

I learned a trick when I had a business class in high school. It was to play slow or fast music when in the store to either slow or quicken up a customer shopping. I will do that at work as well. If I am assigned something to be tested quickly, I will tent to play faster upbeat songs to help me keep pace with my testing.

Thanks for the podcast. Will check it later.

Thanks for posting this Podcast. I’m going to finish listening to it tonight.

Another great session, found it endearing the number of times she had said, hippie or hippie answer.

I wouldn’t associate the two (music therapy and hipsters)

Well done @william.ward

Nice session

I used to be a nervous scared type person and I found some classical music helped me become calm.

Over a few years I learned I could reproduce the calmness without music. Then I didn’t need the music.

A year ago I was lying in the road for 3 hours with my lower leg snapped in half. The medics were bemused by my calmness. I explained I was currently listening to some Vivaldi. No actual music playing, just replaying the feeling as if I were.

I’m sure an expert will know what happens to us when listening to music, I only know what works for me.

18 months ago I broke my arm. I was listening to Beethoven when I set it myself. 7th Symphony 3rd movement.

I sometimes think what is making the world worse is we’re not listening to enough Beethoven. Garage, rap etc is just spreading anger and hateful thoughts.

Not only LvB, so many others are worth listening to.
But of course you know. :grin:

To bad I can not create such a thread :
Ludwig van Beethoven recorded his newest album.
“10. Symphony” :laughing:

I was “listening” to Mahler when I had my flu jab earlier this week.

Internalised music sounds best, good battery life.
