Posi music (pronounced pah-zee) has been around since the 1940s, though only recently has a definitive label been applied to music in this genre. Short for Positive Music, Posi Music is categorized by its intention to have a positive effect on the listener. Musicians who write and perform Posi Music profess a desire for their music to unite and inspire their audience and make them feel better. One of the earliest 100% Positive Songs was Accentuate The Positive written by Johnny Mercer and made famous by Bing Crosby. That same song also defined the concept that there is indeed polarity between being Positive or being Negative, specifically noting there is also no Neutral as in "no more Mr. In-Between".
This concept has been expanded by groups promoting the education of Posi Music, such as the Positive Music Association, emPower Music and Arts and the Positive Music Imperative. This concept of Positive Music and Negative music has also been identified in the book called A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle
And from some of our musicians:
It means music that is uplifting, thoughtful, conscious. It can be something that is deeper or thoughtful or spiritual or universal. When people go out feeling better than when they came in, that's what Posi Music is to me.
Posi Music inspires, transforms, emPowers, unites, enlightens, heals and celebrates the human spirit and its many forms of spirituality. It embraces diversity, builds community, cares for the Earth, entertains possibility and raises consciousness for social justice, self-awareness, authenticity and integrity.
Positive Music is music that makes you feel good. It usually has a great message without preaching, it can be spiritual but usually not religious. I think it is music that unites people and lifts them up.
