The Magic of Music ~ Guest, Jay Adkins
Living Beyond Linear Radio Show with Keisha Clark
Do you like music? Do you find it inspiring, soothing, exciting, inviting…and a whole bunch of “ings” that are pretty much awesome? Music can change us – it can change our body. Music can change our brain. Music can change our life. Music can change our world. So what is this Magic of Music?
I am Honored and Excited to welcome my Very Special – and Magical – Guest, Jay Adkins, this week to celebrate the Magic of Music. Jay is my Brilliant co-creator and the producer of Global Embrace ~ a new song we premiered last week (February 28, 2017). I am Delighted to get to share him – and his music – with you this week.
Jay Adkins was a scholarship student at University of North Texas where he received a Bachelor of Music in Music Theory. He completed his Master of Music in Music Theory from Southwestern while a Teaching Fellow there, and did additional doctoral work at UNT. For 30+ years he’s been composing, arranging, producing, and performing in and around DFW. He has served as co-arranger for the Miss Texas Pageant, writer and producer for 25 years with Kids Who Care, and has served as musical director, pianist, or bassist for every major theatre company in Fort Worth. Recent projects include the documentary Our Spirits Don’t Speak English (Richie Media – Dallas) for which he provided original music and post production.
Jay has a deep interest in music of the Middle East, and studies the dumbek. His study and practice of yoga and Eastern thought – and a journey to Tibet and Nepal – have served as a compass for his creations. You can find Jay’s Incredible music here – https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/jayamusic
