 (Nashville, Tenn.)— With American Psychological Association statistics showing 75 percent of adults worldwide report experiencing moderate to high levels of stress in the past month, and nearly half claiming their stress has increased in the past year*, people are looking for relief from everyday pressures and anxiety. Many are now finding comfort, peace and tranquility by retreating into The River of Calm.

“Our podcasts provides listeners with a personal look into the lives of our artists and the path they’ve taken to be accomplished musicians,” Bazel says. “We’re hearing from listeners that the podcasts reveal commonalties between their lives and the lives of our artists. While the majority of listeners may not be musicians and performers, through the podcasts they’re relating to the artists, and to same human journey of triumphs and trials they’re on, too.”

The River of Calm is also available on Android and Apple devices. Listeners can now say, “Alexa, open The River of Calm” to immediately find peace in an often chaotic world

“It’s been said that when words fail, music speaks,” Bazel adds. “The River of Calm allows music to speak the reviving language of peace, joy and positivity.”
