BOSTON, Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Shuttersong, the free mobile app for connecting photos with sound, today announced a partnership with recording artist, songwriter, composer, producer, and keyboardist LOU. LOU will be debuting a couple of songs from his new album starting in October on the app. Together, LOU and Shuttersong hope to gain new fans and show this new and cool way of sharing music. For Shuttersong, the relationship comes hot on the heels of its engagement with music sensations, Jack and Jack. Shuttersong is a digital community where you can create and share "Shuttersongs" – photos that have music, sound or voice embedded into them.
"I've spent much of my career being a champion for music sharing through the internet and now through social media," said LOU. "I'm always looking for new social avenues to connect with fans, discover new ones and to share my music so when I discovered Shuttersong I was interested to see how I could use it to share my music. I'm looking forward to sharing my new music on Shuttersong in October and through the fall. I think Shuttersong will help me tease the new album without giving too much away, gaining intrigue from my fans, both old and new, in the process."
Lou, a Boston-native, learned to play keyboards at an early age, learning the ins and outs of the music business by doing demo work for other artists in the early 1990s. LOU successfully promoted his career through 21st century social media, releasing five studio albums, a live album, five EPs, a best-of collection, and a holiday album that gave him combined worldwide sales of over four million records.
"Musicians are now being creative and innovative on social media because that's where the fans are and that's where they like to discover new music," said William Agush, founder, inventor and CEO of Shuttersong. "One of our goals is to support and help musicians and artists get their new music out there and help grow their fanbases, so this really is the perfect match for us."
