We were invited because of "Everybody Knows About Me," our song about living with undiagnosed myalgic encephalomyelitis, and I gave a slightly longer introduction than usual to that song before we played it. Other than that, the only thing we had to say regarding music and health came from a couple of studies I happened to read about. (See here and here.)
Me: "According to recent research, music you like can actually lower your blood pressure. They also found that music you don't like can raise your blood pressure, so ..."Going by the audience's response, I'm happy to report that Cinder Bridge had a positive effect on blood vessel function today.
Ron: "Wow, I really hope you like us."
Me: "Yeah, I hope we don't suck."
