Graffiti6 Artist Showcase Now Available on Slacker Radio
SAN DIEGO, June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Slacker, Inc. today launched the Graffiti6 Showcase, a free radio station that is programmed and hosted by the members of Graffiti6, Jamie Scott and Tommy Danvers aka TommyD. The Graffiti6 Showcase can be heard anywhere that Slacker is available, including on all major smartphones, the iPad, home entertainment devices and on the web at http://www.Slacker.com/Graffiti6.
The Graffiti6 Showcase highlights the personal stories behind the songs that the band loves with exclusive commentary on the tracks that have influenced them most. Featuring music by Graffiti6 along with hundreds of songs hand-selected from their personal music libraries, the Graffiti6 Showcase includes tracks by Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, Doves, D’Angelo, Lewis Taylor, SBTRKT and more.
“Going to Slacker and having the chance to indulge myself in the music I grew up on and the records that influenced me was awesome,” said Jamie Scott of Graffiti6. “It made me remember how I first fell in love with music!”
“Like most DJs, I started playing music to a roomful of supposed friends who were all making out with the women I wished I was with. Now everyone is a DJ, promoting their favorite track of the moment through social media,” said Graffiti6′s TommyD. “Slacker Radio is the next generation of finding music, and we loved putting our station together.”
While in Slacker’s studios, Graffiti6 also gave live performances of their No. 16 Hot AC hit “Free,” No. 18 hit “Stare into the Sun” and “Lay Me Down.” To watch videos of these performances as well as the making of the Graffiti6 Showcase, visit: http://bit.ly/Graffiti6-Slacker-Videos.
“The unique sound of Graffiti6 derives from a true passion for many diverse styles of music,” said Scott Riggs, senior director of radio at Slacker. “Hearing Jamie and TommyD share personal stories about the songs that influenced their lives is an amazing radio journey that any listener will most certainly enjoy.”
Slacker Artist Showcase stations are hosted and curated by the artists featuring a diverse and growing array of genres, further emphasizing Slacker’s dedication to being the ultimate personalized radio and music discovery resource. The Slacker Artist Showcase collection includes current stations programmed and hosted by The Wanted, Silversun Pickups, RJD2, Patrick Stump, Plain White T’s and many more. Artist Showcase stations can be played anywhere that Slacker is available and can be found in the “Artist Showcase” station category on all major smartphones, the iPad, in Ford vehicles with SYNC AppLink, connected home devices including Sonos and online at http://www.Slacker.com.
With three complementary service tiers, from the entirely free Slacker Basic Radio and the ad-free Slacker Radio Plus to the on-demand access of Slacker Premium Radio, Slacker offers a custom listening experience for every music fan.
Colours, the debut album from VEVO LIFT and VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist Graffiti6, is as vividly vibrant as both the project’s moniker and its album title suggests: an uncategorizable melange of pop, psychedelia, R&B and British Northern Soul that fully capitalizes on the soaring uplift of singer-songwriter Jamie Scott’s emotionally transparent voice and gift for melody and songwriter-producer TommyD’s irresistible rhythms and inventive production.
The relentless experimentation on Colours reflects the lively imagination of its creators — both London-born multi-instrumentalists who began making music together in 2009 and decided to call the resulting collaboration Graffiti6.
