In a year like 2020, we're especially glad to have a reason to remember all there is to be thankful for. From sharing music with each other to learning and growing alongside each other, read up on what our Sofar Team members are feeling grateful for this holiday season.
I'm thankful for the way that music has brought us together, once again. Music is how I have met some of the greatest people in my life and although it looks different while we are all trying to stay safe, this season has allowed me to create with some of my favorite musicians around the world.

I'm thankful that we live in a world where transitioning to a digital new norm has been possible. The way that people, businesses, and communities have come together virtually to keep that sense of togetherness alive has been inspiring. We may not all have it figured out, but we are on the right track to creating safe and fulfilling experiences for everyone. I'm surrounded by brilliant and creative minds who have made it their purpose to help others during this pandemic. It's encouraging!
I'm thankful for the health of my family and friends. I'm also grateful for the ability to work for a company like Sofar that has been intentional with using this quarantine downtime as an opportunity to improve our processes but especially using our social voice for good while intentionally creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive community for our staff, artists, hosts and guests.
I'm thankful for the clean air and sunshine outside our front door, and the good health to enjoy it. Working exclusively from home definitely invites feelings of restlessness and listlessness, but being able to step outside for a 10-minute or half-hour break with fresh air means everything. It's so simple, but so significant.
I am thankful for the journey of self love and self discovery. I am thankful for time and safe spaces to pause, reflect and grow. I am thankful for friends, loved ones and even strangers who choose to be the good they wish to see in the world.
I am thankful for all of you.
