“Wildfire” by Mandolin Orange

“It warms me up and makes me feel hopeful” – Madeleine Steczynski Co-Founder and Executive Director

“Hold My Hand” by Death Valley Girls

“I love this song because it’s super upbeat, it’s super energetic and ready to dance to but also has a real hearty rock and roll sound to it” – Nikala Pieroni, Development & Communications Manager

“Wake Up Everybody” by Tobe Nwigwe

“I think it’s dope because it reminds to wake up, but it’s also a good message for other people to ‘Wake Up’!” – Corey DePina, Director of Programs

“Uuuu” by Steve Lacey

“If your feeling the love this February definitely listen to Uuuu” – Saned Diaz, Grant Writer

“Human Touch” by Bruce Springsteen

“It’s just a really good song to be in the car to. It builds in a real positive way and you know with still being in a pandemic I’m looking forward to connecting to people in real life and it makes me think of that ” – Kim Dawson, Director of Advancement

“Gravity” by Brent & Tyler the Creator

“I love the guitar loop. There’s something lethargic about it, it’s just super dope. Great for gazing out your window and watching the snow fall, sipping hot tea and reminiscing about people you can’t be around because your socially distanced. ” – Kadahj Bennett, Songwriting and Performance Manager

“TUI” by FKJ

“I listened to this the other day while gazing out the window of the commuter rail and it makes me miss playing piano because I only ever do that at ZUMIX” – Brittany Thomas, Director of Creative Media and Technology

“Drivers License” by Olivia Rodrigo

“It was on SNL this weekend and I really enjoyed seeing a bunch of people just enjoying music together and having an emotional connection together because we don’t get to see that right now” – Chrissy Holt, Director of Finance and Administration

“You Send Me” by Sam Cooke

“It’s a great old school song and it really just slows everything down. If you’re anything like me during this quarantine you just really appreciate a second to really just breathe with some music and it’s great for that” – Wilce Mascary Jr., Pathways Coordinator

“New Person, Same Old Mistakes” by Tame Impala

“It’s a jam, love the riff, some cool stuff going on and the album artwork is awesome as well. I think it’s a dope song so yea check it out” – Omar Sosa, Instrumental Music Manager

“Purple Rain Thing ft Lil Keke” by Tobe Nwigwe

“Purple rain thing was the one that got me, big shout outs to Henry and Nohemi who put me on to that. I was like ooo! It’s from Texas and I don’t know what it was but it got me” – Rene Dongo, Radio Station Manager
