Who We Are
Warrior Songs is a non-profit organization which seeks to help bring hope and healing to veterans through music. Through a variety of programs Warrior Songs uses music to assist veterans and civilians to more fully understand and integrate all aspects of the war experience. Our mission is to transform trauma and struggle associated with war into music which educates, inspires, motivates and entertains.
We believe that helping those who have experienced war find language to convey buried experiences and feelings will deepen one’s self-awareness and leads to a more purposeful existence. Processing chaos into stories and converting them to music fosters communication and helps bridge the gap that often exists between family members, civilians and veterans. War by nature is destructive and over time diminishes the natural human instinct to create. Veterans who are able to turn the destructive force of war into something meaningful and beautiful are able to reclaim hope and joy. The fact that music provides many therapeutic benefits is widely respected by therapists and physicians around the world. The United States Department of Veterans Affairs recognizes the progress and recovery made through the creative arts and hosts an annual National Veterans Creative Arts Festival to celebrate healing through art.
