With spring finally peeking it’s head, we can’t help but think longingly of the group activities and team building events that would normally be in full swing as we remain quarantined. Since we can’t physically go outside into our communities, we’re bringing the sense of community indoors!
Here are 5 songs that capture a warm, open and inviting feel, perfect for stories centered around community.

On this optimistic song, energetic and airy oohs & ahhs kick flutter over a deep, steady bass with big bursts of drums. A floating, atmospheric guitar riff kicks in, building on drums until the encouraging group vocals resume. This instrumental is an epic journey that reaches a comforting end.

“Banding Together” invokes a light, breezy feel with piano and guitar. It then introduces an empowering wall of strings and ascending oohs & ahhs that build into an inspiring crescendo.
