David McGraw is the drummer for Seattle soul outfit The True Loves and is an acupuncturist by day. I caught up with him to hear how his day job informs his music. and vice-versa. We spoke about how he uses music in his acupuncture practice and the awareness he needs for both jobs. I reported and produced this story for KEXP's Sound & Vision. All of the reporting was done on a remote basis.
