Sunday night saw the first ever live-streamed show
take place with charismatic solo artist Collette Cooper
performing tracks from her latest album ‘Lost’, including an exclusive performance of her new single ‘Lost Soul’ and a live-streamed premiere of the supporting video directed by Sadie Frost. During the gig, limited edition gold vinyls were available for purchase, with Collette generously donating all proceeds to Nordoff Robbins, the UK’s largest music therapy charity.
OOOOO Music is proud to present a stellar line-up of signed artists who will play live and direct from Soho over the coming weeks, including VC Pines (25th April), Low Island (28th April), Will and The People (7th May), King Nun and J Sol.
Carlos Posada, lead singer of Low Island has previously played an acoustic set on OOOOO Music. He commented:
“Absolutely loved performing on OOOOO - it was a great way to interact with fans, perform and sell merchandise simultaneously, particularly in what is a very difficult time for the music industry. The team were super supportive, and the set up was seamless. We’re looking forward to playing a full band session in their Soho studio on 28th April!”Looking ahead – OOOOO Music on The Road
OOOOO Music has its sights set on the bigger picture once the music world reopens, with the vision to build out the entertainment commerce model to deliver unique live-streamed experiences from touring artists and festivals - providing fans with access all areas and backstage gigs live and direct in venues and stadiums across the country. At the same time, delivering a lucrative sales channel to musicians and merchants who can retail to a far-reaching audience beyond the ticket holders in the crowd.
Co-founder, Sam Jones, says: “The music industry has been hit hard by coronavirus with live performance revenue being the biggest casualty. We want to fight back and give artists and performers the platform they rightly deserve to reach new audiences and make some money once again!”
“We have built an app that offers live commerce, enabling the transfer of capital from the audience to the performer and merchant, to empower the UK’s talent to share their gift and raise money for themselves or a chosen charity.”
“We are thrilled to provide not only the technology for artists, but also now a state-of-the-art studio to further facilitate performers by providing them with the necessary high-tech environment to deliver the utmost professional live- streamed performance and connect with a wider audience.”
