MEASURE OF MUSIC SETS DATES
12/20/21

Measure of Music—the free global music data & analytics conference and workshop—will return next year.

Curated by Christine Osazuwa, the event takes place from 2/25-27 and fosters innovation and equity with the data sector of the music business. 

Featuring a hackathon, access to various platforms and their APIs, startup pitches and more, 2022’s hybrid edition will include optional in-person participation in addition to the virtual programming and will hold conversations on artist marketing, creator independence, music creation & curation, fan engagement and more.

Keynote speakers for the event include FANMADE CEO Olivia Rudensky, COO Jaime Bilotti and CCO Claudia Villarreal among other yet-to-be announced speakers. Presenting sponsors include AudienseFeed Media Groupand POWER UP: managed by PRS Foundation with support from jump.global, Musiio, The Digilogue and FANMADE. 

“I created Measure of Music so participants got to see more people that look like them on the virtual stage talking about music, tech and data – young people, people of color, women, immigrants, members of the LGBTQ+ community,” said Osazuwa. “I'm continuously trying to find more ways to foster this community and give back any way I can.”

Measure of Music’s inaugural event took place in 2021 across 12 time zones and 20+ countries with more than 900 spectators, 70 participants, 30 speakers, 20 judges and more.

PUPPET HITS THE ROAD
12/18/21

Puppet, neé Brendan Baldwin, is hitting the road for the first time.

Kicking off on 1/29 in Chicago, the Brooklyn-based rocker will bring his live set to venues in L.A., Seattle and Denver with special guests like Astrale and N3WPORT.

Coming off his most recent N.Y. show earlier this year, the mini tour also begins around the arrival of his sophomore album.

While there’s no official release date, the album features three previously released singles from this year, including “Angry All the Time,” “The Worst Part About Me” and “2018.”

“The first show in Brooklyn in October was the best show of my life. There was a time in my career where I thought an album was impossible. Now I have two that I’ve never performed before. So much writing, so many emotions, I’m going to bring it every show,” said Puppet. 

Following his debut on Monstercat, Puppet released a series of tracks from 2014-2017, showcasing his blend of pop-punk vocals fused with rock and electronic productions. In 2019, he dropped his Give Up the Dream EP independently before his debut album, I Know You Know Who I Am, arrived in 2020.

BEE WITH LAY
12/10/21

Hailing from China, LAY—aka Lay Zhang—has dropped his latest single “Bee with You” via Zhang Yixing Studio.

Having co-written the lyrics and composition, LAY integrates Chinese instruments and cultural metaphors in the R&B laden track while showcasing his smooth flow between English and Mandarin.

Dedicating the track to his fans, it arrives nine years after his debut in the K-pop group EXO and is the latest in a series of releases, including 2020’s LIT and his recent EP FAST, which all featured his standout “M-Pop” sound. 

He also collaborated with Steve Aoki and will.i.am last year for the cross-cultural hit “Love You More”—which reached #1 on the QQ Music China chart—and he became the first Chinese artist to enter the iTunes’ Top 60 in the U.S. with his third solo album, NAMANANA

In addition to his music career, LAY recently launched his own management company and has various Chinese films and TV shows in the pipeline.
