I snagged the below from an article about a local band, Not To Reason Why.


What is music for? Everything, says pianist Lauren Haile. "I have so much to say about this," she says. "Music is for sorrow and weeping and gnashing of teeth. Music is for rejoicing and victory and triumph. Music is for building community. Music is for truth. Music is for remembering. Music is for learning, creating, growing, expanding your mind. Music is for showing strength. Music is for showing vulnerability. Music is how we say 'I love you.'"
