Just sharing this site featuring the "soul songs" of Jamie Mitges, passionate father of two who is no stranger to pain--physical and mental.
As a child he was a victim of bullying. Living with Fibromyalgia and arthritis, the aching can be too much to bear at times, but music is there to help ease the agony. Jamie discovered at a young age that he could escape the burden of reality through music.
Jamie writes from the soul to relieve, lift up, empower and provide others with a musical connection that acts as not only a source of entertainment, but a friend with a soul; Soul Song.
You can sample his music and read some of his story on this link.
PS -- I stumbled upon the site as part of my research work on music as therapy.
