TuneGO Inc. Launches Record Label TuneGO Music Group, Inc.


TuneGO Inc., a music platform that connects independent artists with a global community of music fans and industry professionals, announced the launch of its new record label TuneGO Music Group, Inc. (TMG). TuneGO is taking the next step in helping artists break into the music industry and, through the TMG label, has signed its first artist, Three Guests (3G).

"TuneGO's mission is to provide artists with the opportunity to be heard, so it was only natural for us to start our own label, giving the musicians on our site an extra boost for their careers. And since we have an advantage that other labels don't have, our TuneGO SCORE, we are in a better position than most to identify up and coming talent. The TuneGO SCORE allows us to find artists who are popular across many social media platforms and can help us gauge the probability of the success for an artist -- there is nothing else like it that can compare," said John Kohl, co-founder and CEO of TuneGO.

TuneGO, which is free for artists and fans, is continuously monitoring its music platform, searching for artists who have a high TuneGO SCORE. Artists activity through TuneGO's website and apps builds the score and is based on a number of criteria such as social media following, fan engagement, song plays, streaming and download activity, live performance and industry professional reviews. A high score can provide artists access to career boosting benefits including sync licensing contracts, airtime on the TuneGO radio network, music reviews and feedback by some of the world's most accomplished producers, and more.

With the launch of the record label any artist or band on TuneGO with a high score now has a chance to be signed by TuneGO Music Group. The launch coincides with the recent addition of Marcus Spence, Senior Vice President of Mosley Music Group, as Head of A&R for TuneGO Music Group. He has worked with some of biggest names in music including Timbaland, One Republic, Chris Cornell and Nelly Furtado. Spence will help spot the artists who are ready to work with leading industry professionals, music labels and distribution companies.

"A high TuneGO SCORE is what brought Three Guests to our attention as they have amassed a strong following over various social media platforms, building a solid fan base over the past few years. The enthusiastic reaction they get from their fans is impressive and the amount of activity surrounding their posts is a great indication they are doing something right and are ready for the next phase of their career. We are here to help make that happen," added Spence.
