As you may recall, at the end of January, we kicked off our monthly event series, TuneCore Live at the Bardot in Hollywood. With the help of our sponsors Swisher Sweets, CraveOnline, MirroredMedia and Ultimate Ears, we packed the room with fans and artists alike to enjoy a night of networking and live music. It was the perfect launch to what will be an exciting series of shows, with sets by Hudson, Olivver the Kid and Nightmare Boy (plus DJ sets from LA’s KonstantSurprises & Tron Stamos)!
During the event, our lovely sponsor CraveOnline sat down with Oliver the Kidd, Nightmare Boy and the members of Hudson to chat. Even if it’s hip hop or gospel music you play, as an independent artist, these interviews can truly serve as inspiration. We were thrilled to hear some of the artists speak highly of their relationship with TuneCore. Olivver the Kid, after parting ways with The Neighbourhood, was faced with having to get his music out on his own. After asking around and hearing about TuneCore, “I put it up and now it’s on Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, iTunes – the whole rigamarole. I wouldn’t have known how to do that, and they kind of make it pretty easy – it’s like a one-stop shop.”
Said Hudson’s frontman David, “TuneCore has been a very easy, very convenient way to distribute our music and show the world what we have. Because we have the people at TuneCore we can keep our creativity and do what we like, and they’ll get it out to any and every part of the world. Cuts out a lot of the middleman and makes it a lot easier for independent artists like ourselves to do what we do.”
Thanks, guys! We’re thrilled to be able to give independent artists the opportunity to come together, share the stage, and interact with us – because after all, they’re the reason we do all of this! So dive in and enjoy – and if you’re LA-based, remember: we’ll be back at the Bardot on February 25th with a whole new line-up of TuneCore Artists – come hang out! Stay tuned for more info.
