SoundCloud is launching a new weekly artist event series on Clubhouse hosted by DJ, producer, entrepreneur, and former MTV host, Jasmine Solano and headlined by “First on SoundCloud” 2021 artists: Charmaine, Ela Minus, Kid Quill, Lourdiz, Otis Kane, Payday, Sofia Mills, and SoFaygo.
As part of First on SoundCloud’s new accelerator program, each week one artist will invite their closest collaborators, friends, and fans to join them in a live, deep-diving conversation that pulls back the curtain on their individual creative journeys. The events will focus on each artist’s story, connecting them with other artists, influencers, entrepreneurs, industry leaders and fans who come together daily on Clubhouse in an in-depth conversation of ideas, resource sharing and inspiration for creatives everywhere on respecting the hustle that drives career success.
Internationally celebrated artist and music tastemaker, Jasmine Solano gets to the root with each artist to discuss how they got their start, share career challenges, wins, learnings, as well as where they’re headed and how they plan to get there. The full conversations will be available to fans globally on the artists’ SoundCloud profiles following the event.
“I’m so excited to connect live with these First on SoundCloud artists, who represent such a diverse range of backgrounds, identities, and sounds,” says Jasmine Solano. “I’m really looking forward to the amazing conversations and, as a fan myself, getting to know them better. I know first hand as an artist the importance of sharing your story authentically, and that’s what I will aim to bring forward in this — real, raw conversations that give fans a true picture of each artist and the journey it took for them to arrive where they’re at now.”
“The drop-in, all-talk experience on Clubhouse, and SoundCloud’s dynamic fan communities, both shape today’s culture. We’re bringing these influential worlds together, the wider community and the artists’ day ones, to go deep into the creative process and help build long-term career success,” says Leon Sherman, Director of Editorial at SoundCloud.
