GREY GOOSE ENTERTAINMENTÂ® Debuts Third Season of ‘Rising Icons’
CORAL GABLES, Fla., Dec. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — GREY GOOSE ENTERTAINMENTÃ‚® has announced the debut of its third season of the acclaimed original series “RISING ICONS,” recognizing the most influential artists currently taking the music scene by storm. The inaugural episode featuring hip-hop artist Future hits online distribution channels Thursday, Dec. 8, with episodes for several artists to follow including Big Sean, Marsha Ambrosius, Ellie Goulding, Miguel, Jake Troth and Band of Skulls.
Created and produced by GREY GOOSE ENTERTAINMENT, the innovative brand extension responsible for the Sundance Channel original series “ICONOCLASTS,” “RISING ICONS” will chronicle the lives of these musical revolutionaries both on and off the stage, at home and on the road. Each artist will be showcased in three unique installments that capture a day-in-the-life account of their journey to stardom. These rarely documented scenes from recording sessions, industry events and live performances are punctuated by candid commentary from the artists that intimately explore their passions, fears, motivation and inspiration.
“It’s an honor and a thrill to support these artists and their craft while providing a platform that contributes to the arts and entertainment in a new and meaningful way,” said Chauncey Hamlett, senior brand manager for GREY GOOSE ENTERTAINMENT. “GREY GOOSE has become synonymous with celebrating the very best in life, which includes this exceptional group of talented individuals who will undoubtedly resonate with our consumers.”
New to this season is a multifaceted digital distribution campaign centered around the GREY GOOSE Facebook fan page (www.facebook.com/GREYGOOSE). Original “RISING ICONS” content will also be featured on VEVO, the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform. Fans can get to know the RISING ICONS across VEVO including VEVO.com (www.vevo.com/show/grey-goose-rising-icons/15), mobile apps and on VEVO’s syndication sites such as YouTube. The series will highlight the “GREY GOOSE ENTERTAINMENT Presents RISING ICONS Concert Tour” which swept more than 25 cities across America this fall.
