RICHARD "WOLFIE" WOLF
Emmy Award-winning composer, multi-Platinum-selling music producer and author Richard “Wolfie” Wolf has worked with Prince, Bell Biv DeVoe, Freddie Mercury, MC Lyte, and Coolio, as well as hundreds of TV and film soundtracks including NCIS, Bojack Horseman, Oprah and the NFL. Wolf's class at USC on the harmonies between Music & Mindfulness is the first on a university level to demonstrate how the different practices can interact and strengthen each other. His book “In Tune: Music As The Bridge To Mindfulness” was written up in The New Yorker -which called it “a manual for achieving calm in a tumultuous world ” - Parade, Mindful Magazine, Spirituality & Health and others, and is the basis for the podcast “Wolf In Tune”.
Tennessee-born and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Valerie June has been recording and performing since she was 19 years old, climbing from Memphis coffee houses to national TV performances and getting name-checked by Bob Dylan. Her latest album The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers weaves a tapestry of folk, soul, gospel, country, blues, psychedelia, and symphonic pop, performed by an accomplished lineup of musicians with a dizzying palette of instruments (flute and banjo, mbira and Mellotron, saxophone and synth) absorbed in free-flowing experimentation. The album (co-produced with Jack Splash), is acclaimed by fans and critics alike and received 2021 Americana Honors and Awards nominations for both Album and Song of the Year.
