Feel Good Music Fest: 10 Artists Changing the World Feb. 4 @Griffin

The Feel Good Music Project (FGMP) is a non-profit musical tour and compilation CD, featuring ten positive music artists who hope to change the lives of thousands of at risk youth with positive music and healthy lifestyle choices, including yoga, fitness, and healthy food.

Image A 20-date concert tour called the Feel Good Festival will kick off locally at the Griffin on February 4, with a show featuring Chad Scott and Steve Gold, before hitting Los Angeles, San Francisco, Arizona, and a return to San Diego on June 21 at House of Blues.

FGMP is the brainchild of local musician and yoga instructor Chad Scott, aka Shaka Buku, who brought together the ten performers. A related compilation CD will be sold to the public and donated to at risk youth programs like the Boys & Girls Club of America and United Roots Oakland.

Artists include Chad Scott, Steve Gold, Avasa & Matty Love, Summer Mencher, Todd Herzog, Singing Bear, Inner Prisms, Larisa Stowe & Shakti Tribe, Ash Ruiz of Here II Here and Earth Amplified.

Image According to the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, “The average teen listens to 2.5 hours of music every day and is exposed to 35,000 references to substance abuse every year...these references have a noticeable impact on their behavior, mood and personal identity."

In another study of university students, the American Psychological Society published a report stating, "Research has definitively proved the link between youth violence and violent music."

According to these reports, music has a greater impact on human behavior than any other form of media, including TV, movies, and video games. As such, "The goal of the Feel Good Music Project is to impact this behavior by providing a platform for up and coming positive music artists to be heard by the masses and encourage healthy lifestyle choices, which will reduce violence and drug abuse as well as boost confidence and self-esteem in our youth."

The Festival, in its fourth year, aligns itself with health conscious sponsors to expose more people to positive music and healthy lifestyle choices including food and beverages, acrobatic yoga demonstrations, ice breakers, and crowd interaction games.
