NEW YORK, November 18, 2020 – Amazing Radio, the world’s only radio station playing 100% new music and owner of legendary music festival CMJ, has partnered with TuneCore, the leading independent music distribution service owned by Paris-based Believe, to launch a radio series called “Inside Track,” to provide artists with advice on how to succeed. The innovative radio series is the first on-air partnership for Amazing Radio and TuneCore’s first foray into regular radio programming.
Inside Track features independent artists and music industry executives sharing music, stories, and insider tips for success. Each hour-long show includes artists who distribute their music through TuneCore, accessing the company’s global network of 150+ digital stores and streaming services. Tracks played on the show will also be available for purchase from Amazing Radio, where, like TuneCore, 100% of the download revenue goes to the artists.
Upcoming episodes will feature Americana singer/songwriter Rob Baird and publicist Ashley White, while past shows have included singer/songwriter Stephen Wilson Jr, pop-rap artist Boyfriend, young rock group Love Ghost, and nu-metal band Wargasm (UK). Past executives include Chris Oglesby, Senior VP & Head of Creative at BMG Nashville, and artist managers Tavia Osbey (Midcitizen Entertainment), Dan Bell and Ian Dickinson (5B Management.) The shows are hosted by representatives from TuneCore Artist & Partner Services.
Paul Campbell, Amazing Radio founder, said “We have been friends with the guys at TuneCore for years and have tremendous respect for what they do for musicians. Like us, they are all about helping independent artists make it in the global music industry. Now, Inside Track passes on decades of experience from musicians and music business professionals, for everyone to share. It’s an absorbing show to listen to – with some great music too!
Said Andreea Gleeson, Chief Revenue Officer, TuneCore, “Along with Amazing Radio, we share a passion and commitment to independent artists and helping them navigate their careers. Inside Track is a natural extension of our collective interests and enables new artists to gain guidance from artists who have been in their shoes as well as executives who have helped artists achieve successful careers.”
Inside Track airs on Amazing Radio’s two stations, one in the USA and the other in the UK. The show is aired in the US on Thursdays at 7pm ET and each Sunday at 9am in the UK.
