Andrea Montesano with Fr. Peppe Logruosso
BUT THE SKY IS MORE AND MORE ROCK
Footprints of God in Teen Music

Adolescence and music have always been an indissoluble combination. For teens, the search for meaning of their own life and for a place in the world goes on hand in hand with the search for their favorite genre and artist; the desire for freedom, even in the religious attitude, opens to musical genres completely different from previous generations; the need to narrate themselves to better understand their place in life and to grow up passes through identification with feelings and stories heard in songs. Even the relationship with God is filtered through music, through melodies and words used by musicians who “handle with God in the midst of songs”. All these aspects, so typical of each teen, are investigated and examined by the two authors. They carry out a psychological, pastoral, and musical analysis and compare the result with phase in teens’ life, trying to provide the readers with one key to understanding adolescents and supporting them in this age.

Andrea Montesano graduated in developmental and educational psychology in 2016 at the Salesian University of Rome. He uses the approach of Songtherapy, that is the use of songs as a tool for personal and therapeutic growth. This therapy is applied both in psychotherapeutic setting with adults and in the educational relationship with adolescents. He has published The Psychology of Rock. Growing up with Music in Adolescence (2017).

Fr. Peppe Logruosso is a musician and author of contemporary Christian music, first with the project of the “God wants it” band then as soloist. Currently he is the youth chaplain of the Gran Madre sanctuary in Turin, where he accompanies young people also through the use of music.
