According to the Neurologist Oliver Sacks, “Music evokes emotion, and emotion can bring the memory with itself. It brings back the feeling of life when nothing else can.” Music has long been known for triggering vivid memories, helping an individual feel the entire experience all over again. Music is often entwined with people, locations, or seasons, bringing back memories from the past.
Due to this ever-lasting quality of the music, many individuals use music while performing their everyday activities. As a result, every time they hear that particular song, the memory comes back rushing. William Fitchett Means, popularly known by his stage name “Fitch Means,” a renowned R&B music artist, songwriter, entrepreneur, and brand ambassador, has repeatedly experienced this feeling during his childhood. As a young kid, he would usually wake up to Jazz, Rock, Soul, and most specifically, R&B. With his mother’s habit of filling up the house with music before cooking, he holds a vivid memory of those beautiful little moments from his childhood.
Even though Fitch was exposed to different music genres while growing up, he developed a different connection with R&B Music. When asked about how he built a unique relationship with R&B music, he says, “R&B feels good. It has the ability to tell you a story. It doesn’t just uplift you, but can convey many emotions.” While the talented artist isn’t pinned specifically to one genre, R&B is the one he resonates the most with.
