MUSIC STARS JOIN NEW TALENT TO BEAT COVID
On April 10th seventeen acts from around the world will beat the pandemic restrictions and join together to perform in a virtual festival called JAM, and they guarantee complete unknowns will get equal billing with world-famous headliners.
Grammy Award nominee Barrington Levy contributes from Jamaica, in defiance of the Covid virus. Spanish youngster BlueVein will multi-track his own backing from his bedroom. Number One Billboard Dance Chart star Zeeteah Massiah will appear in her own spectacular James Bond movie sequence. Indie rocker How Mean will perform from his grandmother’s house in California. Daisy Chute, the lead singer with platinum-selling supergroup All Angels, performs live from her home in London with newcomers on the other side of the world in Australia. Grammy-Award winner Skyler Jett, whose Record Of The Year with Celine Dion for Titanic is the highest-grossing movie theme of all time, will perform his latest track with complete unknowns dancing in lockdown on every continent in the world. And more artists will beam in their contributions from Detroit to Brighton, from Northern Ireland to Rhode Island.
The producer of JAM is Mel Croucher, veteran founder of the UK video-games industry, and creator of the world’s first million-user viral marketing campaign. Mel says, “Members of my team have made it to the top. We’ve been responsible for over 500 million record sales over the years, we’ve pioneered the online music revolution, and now we’re giving something back to help unsigned independents and new talent in an industry that all but collapsed in the face of Covid. We’ve got Paul McCartney’s Wings Over Europe double-decker bus ready to roll out as a mobile live venue, and we can’t even think about using it until the crisis eases. So we’ve gone online. This is our third online festival, and by far the biggest. And it’s absolutely free.”
Mel goes on to explain why it’s called JAM. “The Festival is a collaboration between three organisations. The J is for my own company Jeeni, where performers showcase their talent and keep 100% of everything they make. The A is for AmplifyX, based in Los Angeles, where you invest in artists you believe in. And the M is for MultiView Media, an amazing streaming platform where fans get to be the director and control the action.”
