“Epilogue”

By Ted Guggenheim, CEO of TextUs

As the oldest member of the TextUs tribe (by quite a few years), my musical influences are quite a bit different than most of my team. My setlist is heavily influenced by the 15+ years I spent in the music business as an artist manager, booking agent, and concert promoter before I migrated to technology.

This may seem like a leap, but my experience in the music industry is part of the TextUs vibe — I set out to create a company that was a little rebellious, one that rejected the idea that business communication had to be stuffy, formal, and, let’s face it, pretty boring. You might say our ‘keep it real’ motto came out of a lot of the music on this list.

Some of the artists here I worked directly with during my tenure in the music industry — The Samples, Dave Matthews Band, and Sting. It was a true pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with these fine artists, and I am happy to share some of my favorite songs of theirs with you.

The other songs I have selected were seminal tracks for me. They’ve remained on my playlists for decades. I hope you enjoy them!
