About Canary

Canary Promotion is committed to working with arts, culture, nonprofit and mission-driven clients.  Established in 2001, Canary Promotion  was founded and is run by people who are truly invested in the cultural, creative and nonprofit communities. The Canary team brings to each project over 14 years of experience working in various areas of the communications, journalism and arts fields.

As a rapidly growing company, we seek out communications professionals who bring creativity, experience and true enthusiasm to our small but dedicated team.  We believe in building strong relationships and long-term partnerships with our clients, and our personalized and passionate approach to everything we do results in clients and staff who have continued to work with Canary year after year.

Canary was co-founded by wife and husband team Megan Wendell (Founder & President) and Mason Wendell (now Senior Developer at web development shop Phase2), who wanted to create an artist-focused business that would draw from their own artistic backgrounds as musicians who graduated from Berklee College of Music, launched several successful tours, nationally released and promoted several albums, and founded an independent record label.

Today, our clients include major arts festivals, education and advocacy organizations, foundations, universities, museums and art institutions, individual artists, theater and dance companies, and various other nonprofit organizations and businesses. We have worked on several projects funded by such granting organizations as The National Endowment for the Arts, The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, The William Penn Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Philadelphia Cultural Fund, among others.
