“[It] is exploring how powerful music can be and music therapy, and how it can help people.”

A Lust For Life has joined forces with some of Irelands most talented singers and musicians to create a live Christmas EP, which celebrates not only the festive season but highlights the power of playing and listening to music and the healing effect music can have on our lives.

“Because it’s Christmas, we’re going to do Christmas songs first. We’ve amazing musicians, we’ve incredible singers. We’re going to take a couple of songs and see what we can do with it and hopefully you at home watch it and enjoy it.

“Hopefully it lifts your mood a little bit. That’s what we’re here for.”
