“Music is a language understood by many and spoken by few. Like any language, it brings people together through communication of thoughts and feelings. For me, it may be the only way I’ve ever been able to truly express myself. The real me, hidden behind all the noise, flows out through guitar strings and piano keys. It is a truly magical thing to bring beauty into the world for others to witness while also allowing others to see my true self. Music brings us together because it is something we can all relate to--it helps us find the common ground in our humanity. And don’t even get me started about when I get to collaborate with another musician, someone who not only listens and understands, but also can actually speak this magnificent language with me.” —Caleb Johnson
