Jason Eastwood of Guitarfulness Celebrates the Release of New Album ‘Living Room Ballads’

Creating spaces of calm, relaxation, and inner peace, while improving overall well-being.

Jason Eastwood of "Guitarfulness" has just released his new album "Living Room Ballads". His music has been shared around the world to create spaces of calm and relaxation at work, home, yoga studios, meditation centers, spas, and retreat centers. His quest is to raise the vibration of his listeners' journey and provide beautiful relief from the stresses of the modern planet.

In 2014, outwardly it seemed as though Eastwood was living the dream life, but inwardly everything was unraveling. Seeking a way to cope with the stress, anxiety, and chaos of the music industry, he sought out yoga and meditation as a way to cope. Eastwood began studying healing music from around the world and incorporated this knowledge into his own music. Soon Eastwood was composing and performing this type of music on his handmade classical guitar, often hearing his music called "the most relaxing guitar in the world".

Music has been shown to have a powerful effect on the mind and can be used as a tool for healing and promoting well-being. Here are a few ways in which relaxing music can promote healing:

  • Reduces stress and anxiety: Listening to music has been shown to have a calming effect and can help to reduce stress and anxiety. A study in the Journal of Advanced Nursing found that listening to music reduced stress levels by 68%.
  • Improves mood: Music has the ability to evoke emotions and can be used to improve mood. A study published in the Journal of Positive Psychology found that listening to soothing music improved overall well-being.
  • Enhances sleep quality: Slow and relaxing music can help to promote a peaceful sleep. A study published in the Journal of Music Therapy found that listening to slow, meditative music before bedtime improved sleep quality.
  • Increases focus and concentration: Music can also help to improve focus and concentration. A study published in the International Journal of Workplace Health Management found that listening to music improved cognitive performance.
  • Promotes brain plasticity: Music has been shown to promote brain plasticity, which is the brain's ability to change and adapt. A study published in the journal Frontiers in Neuroscience found that listening to classical music improved cognitive abilities.

Jason Eastwood started playing the guitar at age of 11, and over the last four decades, the guitar has been an extension of his mind, body, and soul. After touring extensively with various musical acts and sharing stages with musical icons such as The Beach Boys, Journey, and Boston, Eastwood completed a Bachelor of Composition and a Master's in Musicology at Dalhousie University, where he is also an instructor.  

Eastwood's other albums include: One Guitar, Majestic Skies, Wai, Resonating Earth, Singing Tibet @432Hz and Living Room Ballads. Visit his website to listen to his music or for more information https://www.guitarfulness.com
