Children’s music performer Wurmy Wormfeld releases his first full album


Artist, musician, filmmaker, teacher, gardener, beekeeper, parent and partner, “Wurmy Wormfield”, aka Charles Herman-Wurmfeld, has been a prolific artist since the age of 13. You may even be familiar with his film work. He was the director of the award-winning rock operas Cereal Killers and Possession of Mrs. Jones and feature films Fancy’s Persuasion, Kissing Jessica Stein, Legally Blonde 2 and The Hammer.

However, few know of his most powerful legacy, helping to flip a local Los Angeles parking lot and turn it into a community garden. That call to action inspired a transformative personal journey that sparked Wurmy’s lifelong love of music, culminating in his softly opulent folk-pop debut album, For You, The Garden. “This work with the garden, and the music inspired by it, is a continuation of my lifelong creative expression,” says Wurmy. “My work as a filmmaker, teacher, musician and co-creator of the garden space is closely linked.”

Dedicated to Wurmy’s children, River Jack and Stella Hawk, and to his dear fellow gardener Leonardo Chalupowicz, with whom Wurmy first dreamed of making music inspired by the garden, this 18-track album is both a call to the action and a thesaurus of knowledge on nature, the environment, the big bang and much more. But his songs also have strong themes of empathy, love, and collective ownership of society’s failures.

Wurmy has a strong voice which gives depth to his lyrics due to his skill with tempo, rhythm and melodies. He calls his music “vegetarian-alt-conscious-pop” and it’s brimming with orchestral accompaniment. A conceptual touchstone for this project is Harry Nilsson’s immersive scrapbook and animated film experience, The Point!
