Do Ya Thing – London Getty Images

image

This was a very difficult thing to do for me over the last few weeks: keep quiet about the great global partnership Tribe of Noise signed with Getty Images. But yesterday evening, at the Getty Images Gallery in West End (London) I was the proudest Chief on the planet.

In front of a massive audience of music supervisors, photographers, producers, brand managers and creative directors Josh Rucci (Senior Director Media & Broadcast Getty Images) announced our partnership. This will be an amazing journey for both our teams. Congratulations to all involved!

Kicking off with publishing the featured winners of the first ” Tour Around the World”  (Edition Spain), a superb press release and a virtual briefing going out today to thousands of Tribe artists interested to produce catchy UK tracks (drum’n’bass to dub-step, from grime to uk garage) we are on a roll !

To all our talented Tribe members: We keep throwing opportunities in your direction. The only thing we are asking from you is: DoYaThing!

The Power of Unplugged (Part II)

Introducing Corey Webb:

The Power of Unplugged (part I)

It probably tells how old I am but I watched almost every “MTV unplugged” show from the beginning, love it.

The power of unplugged is that it separates good artists from great artists. In many cases professional producers can do amazing things in studios with an average artist. So you end up with a nice music production for national radio but also with a big, big disappointment when you see them perform live.

Unplugged is, uh, unplugged, no hiding behind the producer, no auto-tune etc. So I am very happy that we have artists picking up the challenge, performing live in front of a critical “we’ve seen it all” audience at our headquarters.

Tribe of Noise Wins Prestigious 2011 Bully Award

Tribe of Noise, connecting musicians and business, was announced today as a Young Bull winner of the 2011 Bully Award honouring Europe’s leading technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) companies as presented by White Bull Summits, champions of the European innovation ecosystem.

A total of 60 European companies were named as finalists for the 2011 Bully Award, and the deserving winners were selected from a pool of entries that included hundreds of nominated European TMT companies.

The winners fall into three categories:

  • Yearlings: firms that seek or have received angel/seed rounds or equivalent; classic start-ups
  • Young Bulls: firms that seek or have received Series A financing; early stage companies
  • Longhorns: post Series A firms; growth stage companies

“The Bully Award winners were selected for innovation and values of excellence in the TMT sector. They have been recognized as a leader in their field, with a bright business proposition and meaningful market strategies, driven by a rich understanding of customer needs and technological solutions,” stated Farley Duvall, Founder and Chairman of White Bull Summits.

“We’re of course very honoured to be named a 2011 Bully Award winner, and to be recognized as one of the leading TMT companies in Europe,” stated Hessel van Oorschot, CEO at Tribe of Noise. “It’s validating to be named a winner for this prestigious award, and we accept and share it with the entire Tribe of Noise community.”

Tribe of Noise winner at White Bull Summits 2011Tribe of Noise connects musicians and business online by focussing and bypassing the music publishing industry.

“The White Bull judges very carefully reviewed seed-stage, early-stage and growth-stage companies, and selected the winning companies they believe have demonstrated clear potential for further growth and a high probability for exit in the next few years,” added Duvall.

White Bull has a successful track record in identifying Europe’s leading TMT companies. Eight of the 2010 Bully Award winners identified by White Bull were acquired in the past year including BuyVIP (acquired by Amazon), JayCut (acquired by RIM), Q-go (acquired by RightNow Technologies), Severa Corp (acquired by Visma Group), SunglassesShop.com (acquired by Glasses Direct), Ubitexx (acquired by RIM), Vilant Systems Oy (merged RFID activities with Swisscom Auto-ID Services AG), and WatchMouse (acquired by CA Technologies).
