I'm Nanette Florian, a former lead singer and first female bass player for the famous folk band The New Christy Minstrels.
Unfortunately, I began losing my hearing at age 20, and became totally deaf by age 40. Hearing loss runs in my family.
Listening to music has been difficult.
I now hear through a cochlear processor which allows me to hear the SPOKEN word rather nicely, but if you're like me and use either hearing aids or cochlear processors, when you're listening to music, you hear plenty of sound, but it is usually distorted, making melodies almost impossible to distinguish.
While chasing my kids around the house during those years when my hearing hit rock bottom, I would occasionally be stunned by a song or tone that would stop me in my tracks. Why was THAT so easy to hear and why are my eyes filled with tears? I was reminded of how much I'd been missing.
Well, I began concentrating on a formula for presenting clearer music. So began Hear Music Again where you will find clearer, purer and noise-free music for anyone who is also missing out and would like to indeed Hear Music Again!
