NEW YORK, July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- VNUE, Inc (OTC: VNUE) has announced that is has formed a strategic alliance with DiscLive Network, widely recognized as the pioneer and leader in the field of "instant" media. The alliance will allow VNUE to utilize the expertise of the DiscLive resources, such as engineers and on-site teams, to create and aggregate quality content onto the innovative VNUE mobile platform. Additionally, the alliance will allow DiscLive to work with its existing artist clients to make their content available on VNUE.
This joint project combines the core competencies of both companies and fills a void in music production and distribution.
According to Zach Bair, who is now CEO and Chairman of both VNUE and of DiscLive, the alliance is a natural fit for continued growth and innovation.
"DiscLive's team has been producing and recording quality content for over a dozen years now, and our expertise is second to none," said Bair. "By combining the strength of our business processes, experienced engineers and road teams, and industry trust, with VNUE and this exciting new platform, which is what I consider to be the next obvious evolution of the live concert industry, we create an unstoppable force that creates yet evenmore opportunity and revenue growth for artists, labels, venues, promoters and virtually everyone in the system alike."
VNUE provides a complete ecosystem for production and distribution of high-quality instant mobile content with rich social features, and additionally will be rolling out a sophisticated rights clearing back end system that will help ensure writers and publishers are properly compensated for their work. The consumer app is scheduled for release in the next 30-45 days.
Already there have been a few DiscLive artists jump on the VNUE bandwagon. Among those are Rock Hall of Famers Dickey Betts (formerly of the Allman Brothers Band), and Richie Furay, of Poco and Buffalo Springfield fame.
"I'm excited to be working with VNUE on this innovative new platform, offering artists a fresh way to create a new revenue stream and fans to have shows delivered right to their mobile device," said manager David Spero (and former Joe Walsh manager). "Zach and his team at DiscLive previously recorded concerts with my clients, Dickey Betts and Richie Furay, back in 2012, and by repurposing this great content to the VNUEplatform, we are offering a new way for fans to enjoy amazing live music by Dickey and Richie. We look forward to recording new shows in 2016!"
Bair added that it is his longtime dream and goal to be able to have "every single fan" walk out of a concert with professionally produced content, creating more value for concert attendees and the promoters who are selling tickets, as well as badly needed revenue that has been sucked out of the music industry in recent years.
