Don’t be afraid to catch feels

Baby, I know you ain’t scared to catch feels
Feels with me

Just A Feeling by Phantoms ft. VÉRITÉ

Nice work on this track, Phantoms. Clean production and VÉRITÉ does make this song the stand out track on their latest self-titled album.

This is just a feeling

I wish it could be more…

XLIVE Event Data & Analytics Summit in LA 4/4-4/5

If you’re an event promoter or host and will be in LA April 4th – 5th, you should check out XLIVE 2017’s Data and Analytics Summit to learn more about how to leverage data and analytics for your next event. It’s taking place at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills.

The Summit “will convene live event producers, sports executives, festivals, leading data and analytics executives, in addition to brands hosting their own corporate events and festivals under one roof to educate attendees on the latest technologies emerging at the forefront of event production.”

Speakers from companies like Netflix, AC Entertainment, Golden State Warriors and Warner Brothers Records will be dropping their knowledge on the topic. Data and analytics can seem like such a drag, but in all honesty, it’s becoming one of the most important drivers for ticket sales and fan engagement, if not the most important. Here are some of the topics that will be covered:

•FanalyticsData driven ticket sales strategies to monetize target audiences
•Follow the MoneyMeasuring the value of sponsorship activations through big data
•You Are What You WatchHow Netflix is changing the state of entertainment through data and analytics
•Unlocking the FutureExploring the next generation in data discovery through emerging technology

•Safety FirstThe use of data and analytics to secure live event venues in an insecure world
•The Social StageWhy social media data offers the most revealing audience profiles

XLIVE is a community all about cultivating big ideas that make for extraordinary live events. You can learn more about and register for the event HERE. (The tickets aren’t cheap so hopefully you can find a brand or someone to sponsor you.) Either way, I hope to see you guys out there!

Thanks to the Confluence for sending over the info!

Nadia Reid – Preservation (Album)

New Artist Find >>> Nadia Reid

This pleasant 25-year-old gal is from New Zealand and brings us her new album Preservation today.

And oh how refreshing it is, to hear a new, but familiar folk sound of a lovely voice on top of simple acoustics and drums. Think Suzanne Vega, Linda Perhacs, Carpenters, (soft and slow)Haim, plus today and melancholy autumn leaves falling in the soft wind.

I give Ms. Reid my full support and hope listeners can appreciate her simple and wholesome sound amidst the bassy noise we are often served.

Listen to Preservation on: Spotify or Bandcamp.
