Superhero Mixtape Vol. One

Music is an elixir of life, especially for people that have mental health challenges. Chasing goosebumps has been a favourite hobby since I was about seven.

If you are in the mood to feel like a superhero and put on your your super-suit – No capes otherwise you’ll get caught in a jet turbine!  – then listen to my first Psyche Pow! Superhero Mixtape Volume One podcast. It features sunshine-inspired classics from the Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Dire Straits, Rupert Holmes, Musical Youth, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Kool and the Gang, Boy Meets Girl, Pharrell Williams, Five Star and Echo and the Bunnymen.
