Miss Mandy is a very talented musician friend of mine. She has a lot planned for 2017 and wanted a logo to kickstart her endeavor. Together, we brainstormed a lot of ideas focused around music and positive mental health. Mandy has a background in psychology and hopes to bring the two worlds together.
In the end, we landed on this folksy mark.
The yellow canary symbolizes the feelings of happiness and health that music can bring. It originated from the term "canary in a coal mine," which refers to when miners used caged canaries to warn them of danger in the mine. If methane gas became present, the canary would die and the miners would know to leave the mine. But here, the canary is safe and alive around music.
I highly recommend checking Mandy out over on YouTube! I guarantee her music will make you smile.
