New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ TicketNetwork/ Jeepney Music) - Multi-platinum Grammy Award-winning recording artist Apl.de.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas
today announced his global search for emerging artists. In an unprecedented measure, Apl.de.Ap founder of Jeepney Music
(www.jeepneymusic.com) is calling artists to submit their music online at www.jeepneymusic.com. The Los Angeles-based record label is founded on the principle of giving back, to both Apl.de.Ap's homeland of the Philippines and the global community.
Jeepney Music will not only feature emerging recording artists, but will also highlight the growing number of DJs and collaborative artists as he continues to build his label on the forefront of the digital transformation of music. Jeepney Music is committed to combining the unique sounds from around the globe to create a fusion of music that combines various cultures.
Apl.de.Ap states, "I now have the chance to share a dream I was given when I was brought from the Philippines to the United States. I want to give other artists the chance I had, particularly those from developing countries who may not have the opportunity to share their talent on a global scale."
Suzanne Toro, Chief Operating Officer, says, "We are committed to providing a platform for music to be the conduit to connect people globally to the roots of diversity and freedom of expression. Jeepney Music is unique in the fact that it has no boundaries, whether you are an artists from Africa or Australia, we want talents from around the globe."
The online submission is user-friendly and artists can track what projects and talent are being used for collaborative initiatives with Apl and other artists. Jeepney Music is currently featuring artists from the United States, Korea, South Africa, India, and the Philippines. These artists are sharing their music and dreams with our community to inspire others to join and share their talents with the world.
In addition to Jeepney's commitment to developing and launching new artists, Jeepney is also equally as determined to social responsibility. Immediate social responsibility projects include partnering with the United Nations, a technology called OurHistree and the Ayala Foundation, creating a platform to connect the Filipino community on a global scale. Jeepney Music will also be working with Environment Algae Systems and Dura (cleantech technologies) to bring emerging algae and waste-to-energy technologies to the Philippines, a project that will provide environmental solutions for marine life, water, land fill and energy.
