On the heels of the album release tour for Shantis Shadow, Brooklyn singer-songwriter Phoebe Hunt is sharing a message of healing through music in her TEDx Talk, Sing Your Pain Away: Songs Written With War Veterans. The talk expresses a universal truth that by sharing the story of ones pain and trauma through song, one experiences healing.
Watch her TEDx talk here:
Hunt drew on her experience working with SOLDIER SONGS AND VOICES, a non-profit program that unites war veterans in songwriting circles to use the therapeutic properties of music for healing and transformation.
Songwriting allows us to bear witness to our own pain, shining the light of awareness on the places that need it the most; the parts of us that are suffering," says Hunt. "It also allows us a medium within which to share our story with others, breaking down the walls so easily built in daily conversation. Hunt hopes that sharing this message will allow us all the vulnerability it requires to heal humanity.

Hunt's latest album Shanti's Shadow is the culmination of a five year journey that took her from her Austin roots through Music Row, Brooklyn and even to India to study with seventh-generation master violinist Kala Ramnath. In 2017, Rolling Stone Country named her one of their 10 New Country Artists You Need To Know. Her music has been praised by NPR, World Cafe, Bluegrass Situation, Relix and Folk Alley. Hunt recently appeared on Mountain Stage and eTown, and is currently on tour opening for Sierra Hull.
