When you feel stressed, what is your go-to to relax? Taking a bubble bath? Taking a nap? How about listening to music? Believe it or not, studies have shown that listening to your favorite music can help lower stress, depression, and fear levels. Listening to what YOU like is important; even if what you like might not be “classically” relaxing, the fact that you like it is what’s important.
A study done in Ireland tested a group of 80 participants; they were all told they had to give a 5 minute speech about themselves at the end of the study, and then were split into groups of two for a ten minute break. The first group during their ten minute break was instructed to listen to a radio documentary on Charles Darwin and the second group was allowed to listen to music of their choice. Both groups were then interviewed after their 10 minute break evaluating their moods and how they feel, and the group that listened to music reported feelingless stressedand nervous than the group who listened to the radio documentary about having to give a public speech about themselves.

The impact music can have on one’s life is truly incredible. Music can literally improve one’s quality of life! Listening to your favorite music can literally improve blood flow within your body which then leads to lower stress levels, increases how long one can workout, helps with memories, and can ease physical pain, especially in geriatric patients. Studies from all around the world, including John Hopkins School of Medicine, have proven that music can have such a positive impact on every aspect of your life! Music can literally keep your brain young!
One of the biggest reasons we love what we do here at Legendary Vocals is the knowledge of how impactful music really is. Putting out a new CD or telling you all about a Featured Artist comes with the feeling of knowing their music is positive and uplifting and it can have that effect on our listeners. Peter started Legendary Vocals and his channel to achieve that goal of uplifting others through the power of music. Every CD, every playlist, every blog post is curated with that idea in mind; how can WE make YOUR life better? With the power of music, we want to make the world a better place, and we know that we can alongside our dedicated fans.
Our VIP club will bring the music that I have personally picked out for you exclusively for club members only along with new goodies EACH month!

I love a cappella, it’s always been such a big part of my life. I co-founded the group On the Rocks at the University of Oregon, I met my wife through a cappella, and what really put me on the map as a creator was my arrangements and transforming popular songs into a cappella renditions! I wanted to explain kind of why we focus so much on a cappella here at Legendary Vocals and why it’s so important to me and how amazing a cappella truly is.
