Jasmin Uglow lives for music.

For the Canadian singer-songwriter, music is the one thing she always has no matter what. Despite all of her gains and all of her losses, Uglow still has music — and she uses it to do as much as she can with it.

“If I can give it some positive use, I love to do that,” she says.

Uglow has performed at many of Toronto’s best venues, and her vocals can be heard in many songwriters’ compositions across multiple languages and genres. Throughout her career of writing, performing and inspiring, she has always stayed true to her love and appreciation for music.

In an episode of Music Memory, Uglow painted a picture of herself singing in the kitchen as a child, and how those songs became important for her father after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Now, Uglow joined us to talk more about her own experience with the Alzheimer Society Music Project, and how music can help those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
