We Are Listening is a new ten-part series featuring songwriters and visual artists

UK music charity Nordoff Robbins has announced We Are Listening, a new campaign dedicated to the impact of music therapy on those living with a disability.

The ten-part series kicks off on April 22nd with rising songwriter Reuben James, and other talents scheduled for We Are Listening include Lapsley plus music-minded visual artists including Studio Moross and Mason London.

Nordoff Robbins CEO Sandra Schembri said: “We believe in the power of music to connect with the human potential that lies within us all, including those living with profound disability, illness and exclusion. Creativity, courage, and collaboration is at the heart of Nordoff Robbins’ work, so to see the power of our music therapy work come to life through the lens of these incredible artists is inspiring. Our hope is that We Are Listening gives the public an opportunity to witness and connect to the immense value of music therapy.”
