Social media sensations, Three Guests, drops first studio single, “Marilyn.” Produced and distributed by TuneGO Inc.’s newly formed record label, TuneGO Music Group (TMG), “Marilyn” is a song that blends pop and smooth hip hop into one sound and relates an empowering message that everyone is beautiful in their own way. The new single is now available on all major digital platforms, including Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal, Amazon, Deezer and SoundCloud.
Three Guests, a pop trio out of Erie, Pennsylvania, include Ben Waldee, Jordan Rys and Noah DeVore who write and perform original music. For years they have written and played together, creating music on their laptops in their basements. Searching for a way to showcase their music in an area with limited opportunities for aspiring musicians they self produced their own music and became very active on social media, forming a solid fan base organically. Determined to find even more success, they discovered TuneGO and committed themselves to the music platform. This commitment led to a strong TuneGO SCORE, a rating system the platform uses to find artists who are popular and to help gauge the probability of the success for an artist that incorporates many factors, including social media activity. The high score brought them to the attention of TuneGO’s Virtual A&R team which ultimately led to them being the first signed to TMG. They immediately went to work to produce Marilyn, their debut single. (Click here to visit Three Guests website www.threeguests.com)
“Creating our first studio single was a labor of love and we couldn’t have gotten this far without the help of TuneGO and of course, our fans – we hope you like it,” said Waldee of Three Guests.
Marcus Spence, Head of A&R for TuneGO Music Group and Senior Vice President of Mosley Music Group, has worked with some of biggest names in music including Timbaland, One Republic, Chris Cornell and Nelly Furtado. Spence worked with 3G on this song and stated, “I have worked with many artists over the years and I am very impressed with these guys. They have a knack for songwriting and can relate to their fans. A truly talented group, I am excited for everyone to hear their new single, especially the message, which is something that is needed right now.”
A music video, directed by Stephen Garnett who has directed videos for Christina Milian, Tinashe and The-Dream, will follow the release of the new single.
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, introductions to music labels and more. The TuneGO SCORE is what led 3G to be discovered.
