It’s been a muggy August here in Brooklyn, but naturally our Music Publishing Administration team in Burbank continue to comfortably work their tails off! Take a look at some of our latest news from our west coast team. If you’re curious about our Music Publishing Administration services, check us out!
The incredibly successful reggae band, Stick Figure, was formed by songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Scott Woodruff. Since 2006, Stick Figure, has released five full-length albums including the TuneCore Music Publishing administered album, Burial Ground. Burial Ground reached number #1 on both the iTunes and Billboard Reggae charts, and has gained millions of plays on Spotify since its debut.
After Woodruff formed a live band in 2012, Stick Figure has shared the stage with such reggae artists as Rebelution and Tribal Seeds. Currently, Stick Figure is joining Slightly Stoopid and The Dirty Heads on a U.S national tour and is slated to play the inaugural KAABOO Festival in San Diego this fall.
Cameroon-born, pop singer-songwriter and former member of Prince’s New Power Generation band, Andy Allo, released her newest EP and PledgeMusic funded project, Hello, in April of this year. Hello reached 143% of the goal amount through PledgeMusic, and Allo chose to donate 10% of the excess proceeds to the charity, Invisible Children. Her newest EP, which TuneCore Music Publishing is proud to administer, is the follow-up to her 2012 release, Superconductor, which was executive-produced by Prince.
In addition to being an accomplished musician, Allo also is both an actress and model and has been in various commercials and ad campaigns. Allo also recently surprised fans with an intimate, impromptu performance in a convenience store on an episode of TuneCore’s and Swisher Sweets’ Convenience Store Sessions.
