ROLI announces Pharrell Williams joins as Chief Creative Officer

The team at ROLI, the UK startup that has created next-generation musical instruments, announced today that Pharrell Williams, the producer, songwriter and cultural icon, will be joining the company as Chief Creative Officer. 




Music touches all of us, and for a long time I've been passionate about finding ways to share the power of music with more people. When I met Roland Lamb and ROLI, I immediately felt we were working towards exactly the same goals, and so I'm super excited that we're kicking off this partnership
