THIS WEEKS PLAYLIST

Check out this week's new playlist, from JACK HOLAND

My taste in music is so weird and eclectic. Anyone who grew up in the Limewire Generation has a strange taste in music, I think. So often, the songs we thought we were downloading turned out to be something completely different — and thus we were introduced to a new song! I also grew up bouncing between my separated parents’ houses, where they (and their partners) listened to distinct styles of music. With four brothers who also have wildly different music tastes, my musical palate is about as varied as possible.

 

As an actor, music is always so helpful to get me ‘in the zone’, whether before a show or before shooting a scene. As a theatre maker, I employ music in my productions extensively, knowing how powerful it can be when used effectively, how easily it can set a scene, mood, tone, atmosphere.

 

My playlist starts soothing and meditative, and develops to joy, expression and unbridled, life-affirming fun. Sometimes I feel inexplicably sad — and that’s okay. Sometimes I feel inexplicably happy — and that’s also okay. The power of music is to find you in whatever state you’re in, hold your hand, and remind you that other people have felt this, other people have survived this, and this too shall pass.

OUR  PLAYLISTS

Each week we share one of our Hummingbird's playlists. A collection of 12 songs (a nod of respect to the 12 male lives lost on average every day in the UK) that mean something personal to them, songs that may well have been the inspiration that helped them through a tough time.
