LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2013) - TuneGO (www.TuneGO.com/) -- a new platform that connects independent artists with legendary music producers, songwriters, and promoters -- announced the launch of its crowdfunding campaign today at www.TuneGO.com/IndieGoGo.
Designed to be a career development platform, TuneGO will provide an outlet for discovery by the public as well as help indie artists develop their careers and, finally, put them in front of the people who matter. It will offer radio distribution on the TuneGO Radio Network, as well as personalized career development services; feedback from industry experts, producers and songwriters; and the chance to pursue revenue-generating opportunities in the music industry, including recording contracts.
The crowdfunding campaign includes rewards for contributors including lifetime memberships, exclusive VIP access, signed memorabilia and more. In addition, the campaign features an Adopt an Artist offering that lets music fans purchase packages to be matched with a particular artist for a direct donation -- much like adopting/fostering a child overseas.
"The artist has been chasing the industry for too long," said co-founder Stacy Haitsuka, who also founded Internet service provider NetZero. "TuneGO flips that dynamic, bringing to the artist legendary music producers and songwriters who are actively and aggressively seeking the next breakout star."
TuneGO is being backed by noteworthy music legends, including Ron Dante (Barry Manilow, Ray Charles, Cher, Joan Jett, Dionne Warwick), Desmond Child, (Bon Jovi, KISS, Christina Aguilera, Ricky Martin, Selena, Aerosmith, Kelly Clarkson), Peter Asher (Linda Ronstadt, Neil Diamond, Morrissey, Diana Ross, 10,000 Maniacs), Lamont Dozier (Lil Wayne, Three 6 Mafia, Usher, Linkin Park, Tupac Shakur), Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Shania Twain, Britney Spears, Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment), James "Jae-E" Earley (David, Bowie, Rage Against the Machine, Cheap Trick, "Marky" Mark Wahlberg, M.C. Hammer), John "Jellybean" Benitez (Madonna, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Carlos Santana, Paul McCartney, Barbra Streisand), Gary Katz (Prince, Dire Straits, Christopher Cross, Peter Tosh, Joe Cocker) and Michael Lloyd (Air Supply, The Moody Blues, Belinda Carlisle, Barry Manilow, Jeffrey Osborne).
"A song is not really finished until someone listens to it, and TuneGO is the best way to get heard," said Desmond Child Grammy award winning TuneGO producer.
