ArtistologyDebuts Wellness Community App for Artists
Via ROKiT 3-D Phone Offered at
62nd GRAMMY AwardsGift Lounge
Artistology, the pioneering online and offline community offering comprehensive well-being solutions for performing artists, in partnership with ROKiT Phones, creators of glasses-free 3D smartphones, will be a Featured Sponsor at the 62nd GRAMMY AwardsGift Lounge. Presenters and Performers from Music’s Biggest Night- which include the hottest names in musical entertainment – will be gifted the ROKiT iO Pro 3D smartphone with the Artistology’s App previously downloaded to it, and will be presented to them at a uniquely-appointed space within the Gift Lounge.
Artistology’s revolutionary wellness app provides an exclusive, safe, and trusted community for artists; offering resources that have long been lacking in this space. According to research, 71 percent of artists suffer from anxiety and panic attacks; 69 percent of professional musicians suffer from depression; and 38 percent of professional musicians died from drug abuse between 1970 and 2015.
“Artists are the cultural architects of society,” says Tammy McCrary, founder and CEO of Artistology. “There is a correlation between the messages that are delivered through music, film, television, and gaming; and the society that is manifested. I believe that when artists thrive – mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and financially – they can have a significant and positive impact on society. Artistology was created to support the well-being of artists. When the artist thrives, humanity survives!"
In contrast to other services, Artistology focuses on proactive, preventative measures available at the touch of a mobile screen. “We partnered with Get A-Head® to allow artists to connect with mental wellness support, not only anonymously, but conveniently right from their smartphones,” says McCrary. The interactive platform supports collaborative care and delivers real-time access through an advanced matching algorithm based on relatability. Sessions occur through text, audio, and video in a HIPAA compliant environment.
Artistology offers courses, retreats, and other resources to support the well-being of artists; and creates opportunities for collaboration, interaction, and transformative experiences. The Artistology app is currently available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
The ROKiT iO Pro 3D mobile phone comes with three months of ROKiT life services including telemedicine and pharmacy savings which are perfect for those who frequently travel and are constantly on-the-go. The telemedicine service allows users to talk to a doctor about minor ailments 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It also provides pharmacy savings up to 70% or more depending on the prescription. After three months, users can continue these and other vital services for $14.99 a month.
The GRAMMY Awards Gift Lounge will be open to all invited Presenters and Performers during three full days of show rehearsals (January 23-25, 2020) at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. The 62nd GRAMMY Awards, hosted by Alicia Keys, will be telecast live on Sunday, January 26, 2020, from STAPLES Center on CBS-TV.
