Music Mix: Love, Light & Lemon Drops

This past month has been extremely busy and stressful for me. I’ve found myself being trapped in a daily routine without any time to relax or de-stress. So I decided that I would do something to help me loosen up and get through my days.  It is said that music can be a powerful tool for stress relief; the idea of music as therapy has been researched for years.  There is some evidence that listening to music can help start your day off right, get you through that early morning commute, or even help you focus on a task that you need to accomplish.  Creating and listening to a music playlist is my way of managing – it helps bring positive energy into my life.  So this month, I am sharing my new music playlist, titled Love, Light & Lemon Drops.

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” ― Bob Marley

Love, Light & Lemon Drops features over 30 tracks designed to inspire love and send positive energy your way.  It’s all about feeling confident, expressing love, and overcoming our daily roadblocks.  The playlist includes tracks from some of your favorite artists like Jill Scott, Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige, Ciara, Fantasia, Common, and more.

Trey Payadue is a contributing blogger and curator of music for The Black Unicorn Project. He was raised on the west bank of the New Orleans Metropolitan Area in the small town of Marrero, Louisiana. Brought up in the Black Catholic church, Trey was completely immersed in New Orleans music and Black culture through local fairs and famous celebrations like Mardi Gras, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and the Essence Fest. He was also exposed to various styles of music, such as gospel, pop, rock, funk, hip-hop, bounce and his first love, rhythm & blues, at a young age. His inherent love and appreciation, paired with his exposure to New Orleans Culture and events, ignited an infectious passion for music. Trey quickly became known as “The Music Man”, amateur house party DJ and the mixtape go-to guy for new music. Currently, Trey juggles a 9-5 while moonlighting as a curator of good music, a patron of popular music and Black culture, and a student of where all three intersect.
