We get quite a few inquiries from independent labels and artists requesting help with marketing. There is a very selective process we use as we don’t want to work with something that we feel has little or no potential. A couple of months ago a representative for new artist, Colton Jacobson, contacted us about helping them launch his digital release. After hearing Colton’s great voice, and seeing what he has accomplished via Youtube at 14 years old, we were intrigued. Back in July of 2011, Colton began putting up Youtube videos of himself singing Adele, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars songs. His cover of Bruno Mars “It Will Rain” struck a chord with Youtube viewers garnering 1.2 million+ views in a very short time. With his Youtube success and 100K Twitter Followers, Colton definitely knows how to work the social networks and is on his way to becoming a household name. Colton Jacobson’s new release, The Beginning, releases today. Check out his Youtube video below and visit iTunes to pick up his new release.
