This ongoing series showcases a unique creator that has inspired me to push my boundaries and learn more about the world around us. Take a look and let them inspire you too!
Music has been a powerful healing force for countless people throughout history. The right song or artist can be the antidote to a feeling of isolation or the motivation to power through your work. Personally, I benefit greatly whether I happen to be listening to a fun song, an artist pouring their heart out to work through a heartbreak, or a song so full of anger that your speakers start smoking. Music as an art form connects with us on such a deep level, sometimes without us even realizing it.
Every so often, we run across an artist that takes things a step further. Somehow, they find a way to chip through the shields we have up to protect ourselves from society at large. Their message confronts us head on and we have no choice but to sit up and listen.
Johnny Crowder is one of those artists.
Fans of the band Prison know him for his love of nu-metal and lyrics that promote mental health while tackling some significantly heavy topics in general. Subscribers to the text based service Cope Notes know Johnny as a leader in preventative mental healthcare and overall promoter of wellness.
As a survivor of physical abuse and someone who has battled mental health issues for most of his life, Johnny is in a unique position to bring his experiences to the world in an engaging way. Whether you connect with his message of hope, love, and strength through his music or Cope Notes (or both), Johnny is a a beacon of light in a world that can envelope us in darkness.
I encourage you to give him a follow on social media and sign up for a Cope Notes trial. You never know when you’ll need that little boost of positivity.
