Cheryl Cawood is a singer/songwriter in Sante Fe, Texas. Her music presents an edgy Country/Blues/Folk vibe. When two of her three daughters fell into patterns of substance abuse, Cheryl turned her experiences into activism by using her music to support the families of people with substance use disorders. With the help of Music to Life, Cheryl was able to start her program, Hope Loves Harmony (HLH). “I had hope, I had my music, and I had harmony; Music to Life helped me put all that together.” Hope Loves Harmony helps parents and caregivers of children with substance use disorder by engaging them in creative songwriting workshops and activities. Cheryl is fiscally sponsored through Fractured Atlas and completed a pilot version of Hope Loves Harmony in Fall 2020 with community participants. The pilot resulted in the recording of an acoustic version of Letting Go, a song co-created with HLH pilot participants. She is currently fundraising to continue providing a creative and engaging outlet for parents and caregivers alike.
