What's Up With Wurrly! WURRLYedu, Little Kids Rock, Rockfest
It’s been a whirlwind of a summer here in our office in Santa Monica, CA and we wanted to share with you some of the biggest highlights, as we begin the month of August and the beginning of the school year (it pains us to even speak such words!).
Wurrly has been fortunate enough to highlight the talents of many artists so far this year and we strive to incorporate more phenomenal individuals as we take a philanthropic approach with the addition of WURRLYedu. Nadine Levitt our founder and CEO knew that the logical next step is to give back to the public by developing a version of Wurrly for education. The goal of WURRLYedu is to SAVE music education with technology. Public schools all over the United States are cutting arts programs like Musical Theater, Concert Band and basic music theory education. Wurrly see's this as detrimental to the core of our youth and a growing problem in our society. The Wurrly Team recently attended a conference put on by the Little Kids Rock Foundation called Rockfest in Fort Collins, CO. See us present WURRLYedu in our recap video below!
July has been an amazing month for all of you Wurrliers as well. We are so excited by the amount of talent that comes through our electronic door on the daily! Below are five of our favorites from you, the listeners, the singers, the ARTIST! The people who make our jobs a pleasure to be a part of! It’s difficult to narrow down to just five, but here are some of the tracks we’ve had on repeat:
