Advice & Tips: Music is , well, everything to me. Each musical note has a mathematical equation, and a color frequency. I have said this many times. It is everything to do with aligning your soul with the universe. Writing, singing and playing guitar are very empowering and soothing and an incredible emotional release for me.
