The Pulse looks back on a year of uplifting music and engaging conversation
This year may have been wrought with challenges, but TGFGM (Thank God for Good Music... I just made that up)! The Pulse has been fortunate enough to serve as a source of healing and hope, thanks to the artists that have come through over the course of the lingering pandemic. Much of what musicians presented this year, in the spirit of collective care and concern for our shared experience, has had a curative component.
As we say farewell to 2021, here's a list of a few of the artists (in no particular order) that have come through The Pulse. Thank you for your offerings and for giving all of us hope during these uncertain times.
