Living Well creates opportunities for accessing information, identifying resources, developing skills, and making healthy choices. We do this through innovative programming, collaborating with and supporting campus partners, and advocating for individual and community health.

English afro-folk-pop ensemble The Melodic will release their debut album Effra Parade this November 5th via Anti-. It is the follow up to the band’s acclaimed EP On My Way. English newspaper The Observer described The Melodic as “Incredibly beautiful, with harmonies and rich instrumentation that make you want to dance and cry at the same time,” while in the US the band has drawn comparisons to indie darlings Beirut and The Decemberists.
The Melodic are a quietly radical band. This is the first young English group to lionize Chilean neo-folk rebel Victor Jara since Sandinista-era Clash. Their new album Effra Parade was self-recorded in a sound-proofed bedroom in South London over several years with a baroque line-up of 18 instruments. All the more impressive when you consider they are still in their early twenties.
Matisyahu has come a long way since 2005 when he released his breakout album, Live at Stubb’s (which reached #1 on the Reggae Albums Chart and #30 on the Billboard 200). Since then he has pushed himself dynamically and creatively, breaking with expectation at every turn and remaking his musical image with nearly every album.
Kelly Ravin is a musician hailing from the Green Mountain State of Vermont. He writes songs about real life. Scratchy vocals, and gritty guitars seem to explain it all. We hope you enjoy the music, and that it makes you happy!

Jim Breuer’s book title says it all: I’m Not High (But I’ve Got a Lot of Crazy Stories About Life as a Goat Boy, a Dad and a Spiritual Warrior). The 2010 memoir goes behind the scenes at “Saturday Night Live,” recaps adventures with Dave Chapelle and touches on family life, proving the notoriously stoner-eyed standup is “more than just a goofball,” as Publishers Weekly writes. That’s not to say you won’t laugh when he takes the stage at Paramount Theatre in what’s billed as a “non-vulgarity show.” TheHalf Baked star, Comedy Central favorite and father of three can just as easily crack jokes about sleep-deprived wives and crappy kids’ music. And you never know when “Goat Boy” will make a cameo.
