Music and Mental Health

Underneath The Mask

The song talks about how a person may seem like they are doing well based on their outside appearance, however, what they are feeling, what they are going through isn’t the same as your assumption. The lyrics talk about how a person is doing ,mentally, and why they hide what they’re feeling. There are several reasons as to why someone would hide their sadness, it could be the prejudice against depression, it could be because they feel as though no one else feels what they are feeling, it could be due to embarrassment, or it could be because of something else. No matter the reason, not everyone who looks happy, is happy.

These Days

These Days states issues that people with poor mental health may face, and brings awareness to common feelings that we all might relate to at times in our life. It’s a struggle and constant cycle to break free of depression while trying to feel happiness a person once had. We feel that both composing and listening to music allows us to express ourselves with these emotions that we face.


My song ‘Cookies’ represents the mindset of someone with an eating disorder. This song is meant to promote awareness towards the emotions people in this situation feel and create more sympathy to this problem.
