New York, NY (Top40 Charts / TuneGO Inc.)
TuneGO® Inc., a technology platform that connects artists with the music industry, announced that its artist Three Guests' EP will be distributed by Priority Records nationally and Universal Music
Group internationally. The legendary label is releasing the band's EP that consists of a collection of pop songs with an urban flavor. The songs, written by Three Guests, are available now on all major digital platforms including Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal, Amazon, Deezer and SoundCloud.
"When we first heard 3G we were blown away by their sound. Here are a couple of young guys writing and producing songs that got their social media following excited. However, they needed a boost to get noticed within the music industry and that is where we came in - helping them to better define and hone their style and, of course, get noticed," said John Kohl, co-founder and CEO, TuneGO. "Priority also picked up on their potential and were eager to get involved. Now this band from Erie, Pennsylvania will have their music distributed, both nationally and internationally, by this legendary label."
Three Guests is Jordan Rys and Noah DeVore who write and perform original music, and depending on where the song takes them, they collaborate with other artists, such as DJs, singers, songwriters, producers and similar. This keeps their music fresh and without limitations on what they can accomplish.
As part of the technology platform's algorithm, TuneGO collects and analyzes Big Data
from a variety of sources, such as an artist's online activity, fan engagement and industry feedback to determine the likelihood of an artist's mainstream success. When 3G signed on to TuneGO they quickly rose to the top, largely because they had a robust and active social media following.
"Record labels and distribution companies are very cautious now and only want to engage with artists who already have a following. Our Big Data
approach can help organizations within the music industry quickly identify artists with a strong fan base and similar metrics indicative of a successful music career, making it an easier decision when deciding which artists to move forward with," said Alison Ball, president, TuneGO Music
Group, an independent and innovative record label and a wholly owned subsidiary of TuneGO.
For years Three Guests have written and played together, creating music on their laptops in their basements. Searching for a way to showcase their music in an area with limited opportunities for aspiring musicians, they self-produced their own music and became very active on social media, forming a solid fan base organically. Determined to find even more success, they discovered TuneGO and committed themselves to the music platform. This activity brought them to the attention of TuneGO's Executive A&R team which ultimately led to them being signed to TuneGO Music
Group. They immediately went to work to produce Marilyn, their debut single.
Priority Records was recently re-launched by Capitol Records to focus on independent music. (Universal Music
Group, the world's largest music label, owns Capitol Records.) Priority Records is a record label known for launching the careers of Eazy-E, N.W.A., Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg
and many others, and well-known record labels including Death Row Records, Roc-A-Fella Records, Ruthless Records, No Limit Records and Wu-Tang Records, all groundbreaking and iconic brands in the urban music community.
