Melancholy is an honest attempt to illustrate the true experience of an individual dealing with a major depressive disorder. It does away with the stereotypes that often plague portrayals of depressed characters in TV and film.
The film focuses on one night in the life of Sara, a typical twenty-something going through a severe depressive episode while trying reach out for any kind of catalyst to pull herself free, searching for help through friends, faith, and medication. Through Sara's eyes we see the despair, hopelessness, and fear that can cripple the life of an individual fighting a major depressive disorder. Sara's boyfriend, Graham, provides the perspective of the outsider. He struggles to find some way to help the woman he loves but can't find a way to break Sara out of her cycle of lethargy and depression. The relationship between Sara and Graham demonstrates a common example of the misunderstanding and disconnect between any couple in which one person is suffering from depression. Melancholy explores this disconnect and provides an emotional insight into the struggles of both Sara and Graham.
Our guest this episode will be Writer/Director Nathan Edwards to talk about this project.

This episode of A Kind Voice on Music focuses on New Orleans musician Dominick Blanda...In the summer of 2013 he was reunited with his passion for playing live music as a favor to his brother who works at House of Blues, New Orleans. Asked to fill a solo slot for one of the musicians who had backed out of a gig; the performance received a positive response. That turned into a regular gig and the formation of a band. Now multi-talented artist, Dominick, has a successful Kickstarter campaign under his belt, along with a couple of children's books and a bright outlook for the future. But the way in the past couple of years hasn't been without hitches. Listen as host Mitch Ruth explores Dominick's journey as a multi-faceted artist in the Big Easy. It is even possible that Mitch might ask the persistent question, "Who Dat?"

Welcome to A Kind Voice on Music. This showcase shines a spotlight on Laura Walsh.

Welcome to A Kind Voice on Music. This Musical showcase spotlights Music. Oddly fitting but somehow a rare delicacy on our program to have an all music show. We are honoring those who have shared their music and kind voices with us all through playing the music that they chose to share with our listeners. We will play their music and reminisce about the time they shared with the show. We will highlight the stylings of Steve Weeks, Walden, Erin and The Wildfire, Tony Herdman and more. Enjoy the music and please support live, local music in your area. A Kind Voice on Music, hosted by Tyler Wolf
Another Kind Voice on Music will feature The Kissers from Madison Wisconsin. After a six year hiatus the Irish Folk Rock group has reunited to create an all new album "Three Sails"
The Kissers are known for the frenzied energy of their live shows, their off-kilter humor, and their eclectic instrumentation. Violin, banjo, accordion, and an array of sonic effects combine with diverse musical influences for a unique sound that straddles the gap between indie-rock and Irish music. Audiences and reviewers, trying to describe them, cite bands as varied as the Shins, Pogues, and the Decemberists. The Kissers maintain that they are rock musicians who learned to play Irish music, not vice versa, and so their music sometimes feels more at home in a club than in a pub.
The Kissers will join host Mitch Ruth and for our show, we will feature some past favorites from the Band, discuss the future, hopefully get a few sneak peeks and find out just what they wear under those kilts (wait, that's Scottish....never mind). I may also ask that eternal question: "If you were a tree what would be your favorite brand of breath mint?"

Our special guest on A Kind Voice on Music is the wonderful Upstate Rubdown.These folks are a diverse group of musicians dedicated to creating fun acoustic pop music, with creative rhythms and harmonies. The band combines backgrounds in Jazz, Gospel, Folk, Bluegrass, Latin, Show Tunes, and Classical music, with a shared love of Soul, Motown, and classic R and B, to create a uniquely enjoyable sound. Imagine the Lennon Sisters meet Mumford and Sons with Bob Willis and The Texas Playboys to have sixteen espressos then listen to Django Rienhart albums. Let the dancing begin!
Host Mitch Ruth will ask members of the group about busking, upstate New York winters, their current projects. With luck, he will also seek an answer to the eternal question, "Where did my drink go?"
