British pop act OMYO to use Blingby’s ad technology to turn its music videos into unique shopping experiences

NEW YORK, 2017-Mar-21 — /EPR ENTERTAINMENT NEWS/ — Blingby has today announced a cutting-edge partnership with emerging British pop act OMYO, which sees its patented advertising technology turn the band’s music videos, concerts and more into unique shopping experiences for consumers around the world.

As part of the deal, the innovative advertising and marketing omnichannel platform will curate a series of unique videos that lets viewers shop the stars’ styles as they see them with its ‘bbstream technology’ – a portable scrolling selection of fashion, products and destinations as seen in the videos. Viewers can watch and purchase the styles or book a flight or hotel inspired by the video with the click or tap of a button.

Oxfordshire-born urban pop act OMYO found fame last year when they provided the soundtrack to New Look’s Autumn/Winter fashion campaign with critically acclaimed single ‘Lady’. They have since gone on to become BBC Introducing favourites and receive plays from the likes of BBC Radio 1 Xtra’s Charlie Sloth.

OMYO’s close links to fashion retailers – ranging from New Look to Ellesse – made the band a natural fit for Blingby’s advertising capabilities. As fans watch their music videos, live performances and more, they can simultaneously watch and shop interactively through the bbstream.

At a recent headline show in New York, OMYO also became the first band to use Blingby’s Live technology – the world’s first real-time consumer shopping experience designed for concerts, fashion shows and more.

OMYO and Blingby will also be collaborating on the duo’s next music video for their upcoming single, ‘Days With You’. The video will be bbTagged by Blingby and will feature items of clothing from fashion retailer River Island.

Founder and CEO of Blingby, Marcia Favale, commented on the partnership: “OMYO is right there fusing the boundaries of music and fashion. They have worked with some absolutely aspirational fashion brands – ASOS, Adidas, Ellesse, Blood Brother and more. They know exactly what their fans want to wear and OMYO is inspiring new trends. Through Blingby, OMYO can promote labels whilst maintaining creative integrity. Blingby is the platform designed to bridge that gap and make a connection between music fans and what the stars are wearing.”

OMYO added: “We are always looking for brand new ways of engaging with our fans and followers and Blingby adds a whole new dimension to our videos. Incorporating the Blingby videos into our Facebook page and posts is especially helpful as it is so difficult to stand out on social media these days, but having a video that doubles as an interactive browsing experience provides exactly that.”

BISTRO/BMI AWARD WINNER And NEW YORK MAC NOMINEE, LINDA KOSUT Is Back In New York For This ONE NIGHT ONLY Performance At New York’s Prestigious Iridium Jazz Club

Linda will be backed by a stellar JAZZ QUARTET headed by bandleader Max Perkoff on piano & trombone, Tom Hubbard on bass, Scott Latzky on drums and “Sweet” Sue Terry on saxophone & flute. The Iridium Jazz Club is located 1650 Broadway @ 51st Street in New York City. Doors open at 6:00pm and showtime is 6:30pm. Tix: $20 + $15 food/drink minimum. Reservations: 212.582.2121 or www.iridiumjazzclub.com.

In this new show “The Newness of You”, award-winning vocalist Linda Kosut headlining the Max Perkoff Band, will explore the standards – ones that are and ones that should be – including such songwriters as Hoagy Carmichael, Randy Newman, Bob Dylan, as well as never before heard tunes by current composers such as New York-based bob Levy and Sue Terry, as well as Max Perkoff.

Linda is a vocalist with strong acting chops who effortlessly weaves through differing genres with an ability to touch your heart or have you tapping your feet.

Growing up in New York City and transplanted to San Francisco over 20 years ago, Linda only began pursuing her dream of performing a few years ago as she approached “boomer” status, and she has not stopped since. “I am sure that I am not alone in my journey to satisfy a creative bug I’ve had my whole life; but one that up until nearing ‘retirement’ status, I did not pursue,” says Linda. “My excitement of doing my dreams translates to my audience. I have nothing to give but myself and I know that I give that to them. They tell me how I have inspired them. It is my sheer pleasure to do so.”

Her recent national tour – a deeply heartfelt tribute to the late jazz great Oscar Brown Jr., celebrated her sophomore CD and garnered packed houses, awards and national recognition. The Los Angeles Times’ Don Heckman said of her, “… a style of her own with its warm, dark sound and articulate, theatrically trained phrasing, deserved a far longer run.” And the San Francisco Bay Times wrote, “[She] is the real thing. Multi-talented Kosut knows just when to play it small and quiet and when to let ‘er rip … A perfect accompaniment to dinner with friends.”

Last year, Kosut received BackStage Magazine’s 2008 BISTRO/BMI AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING RECORDING. She also received nominations for BEST FEMALE JAZZ VOCALIST and BEST JAZZ RECORDING from MAC, Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs; plus the Cabaret Hotline 2008 MEMBERS’ CHOICE AWARD.

San Francisco World Jazz Vocalist Lua Hadar Makes A Featured Concert Appearance With New York Pianist Sheldon Forrest At The Swan Bar In Paris, France.

San Francisco world jazz vocalist Lua Hadar makes a featured concert appearance with New York pianist Sheldon Forrest at The Swan Bar in Paris, France. This Paris debut comes on the heels of the successful release of her latest CD, Lua Hadar with TWIST, at New York’s famed Iridium Jazz Club, and her band’s international debut at the Bangkok 10th International Festival of Dance and Music. “It’s a particular thrill for me to be performing in Paris, with my dear friend and longtime musical associate, Sheldon Forrest,” says Hadar. “I’ve been passionate about cultural diplomacy my whole life. When performing abroad, we really have a chance to make a positive person-to-person impact on international relations. It’s a wonderful privilege.” A unique and original vocalist with a soaring range, Hadar interprets lyrics in several languages with a charming, swinging delivery.

The concert will present American jazz, international standards and a few surprises. Saturday, July 25 at 9:30 PM, Swan Bar, 165 Boulevard du Montparnasse, 75006 Paris. Tél: 01 44 27 05 84. Tickets 10 Euros at the door. www.swanbar.fr, www.myspace.com/swanbar, www.luahadar.com

Instantly accessible and truly exotic, Lua moves from stage to cabaret to jazz club with effervescent ease. A native New Yorker, from a musical family, Lua Hadar has performed as a singer and actor all her life. Her experiences in cultural diplomacy have taken her to places as diverse as Bali, Russia, Switzerland, Thailand, Japan and Italy. Her love for The Great American Songbook, the soundtrack of her New York childhood, mixes with her passion for world cultures, so both jazz club and concert audiences enjoy an eclectic mix of grooves and languages from the familiar to the exotic, but always with Lua’s fresh twist.

New York critic Joe Regan Jr. wrote about her performance at New York’s Iridium Jazz Club: – “a stunning evening – sheer beauty – every selection was dramatically on the nose – she rocked – her physical presence and body language remind one of the great Latin [performer], Abbe Lane, at her peak. The evening was pure pleasure!”

Four Great Singers & One Hot Band Kick-Off at Yoshi’s San Francisco Monday April 20 2009

Bay Area jazz vocalist Elaine Lucia and BMI/Bistro Award Winner Linda Kosut have formed Lucia | Kosut Productions to present the Bay Area’s own vocalists and musicians at San Francisco’s premier Jazz club, Yoshi’s. The kick-off event for this continuing series is on Monday, April 20, 2009 at 8:00pm and 10:00pm. (future concert dates to be announced)

Yoshi’s Jazz Club & Japanese Restaurant is located in the historic Fillmore Heritage Center at 1330 Fillmore St. (at Eddy) in San Francisco. Tickets are $10. Reservations: 415.655.5600 or online at yoshis.com.

This collaboration is the result of a vision both Lucia and Kosut had independently – a way to present quality entertainment at affordable prices to new audiences at a time when finances are tight and so many venues are closing.

This first concert, billed as Four Great Singers and One Hot Band, will feature the hosts, Elaine Lucia and Linda Kosut, along with “The Queen of Boogie Woogie”, Wendy DeWitt and jazz vocal virtuoso Kenny Washington. The band is Max Perkoff (piano & trombone), Jonathan Alford (piano), Tom Shader (bass), Alan Hall (drums).

The Singers: 
Elaine Lucia has been fronting and promoting her own jazz combos in the Bay Area for over fifteen years. Known as “a musician’s singer,” she combines her classically trained vocal instrument with a wide variety of styles for an eclectic repertoire and unique style. A recording studio veteran, Elaine has released three jazz CDs, and works as a voice-over artist as well as a singer/songwriter. “…you will remember this voice.” JazzUSA.com www.elainelucia.com

Linda Kosut is a jazz/cabaret vocalist who effortlessly weaves through differing genres with an ability to touch your heart or have you tapping your feet. Known for her ability to tell a story through a song’s poetic images, Linda is an engaging entertainer. Linda has performed coast-to-coast, most recently with her nationally acclaimed CD and tribute to jazz legend Oscar Brown Jr. The LA Times – Don Heckman – “… a style of her own with its warm, dark sound and articulate phrasing, deserved a far longer run. “ www.lindakosut.com

Wendy DeWitt, from Seattle to Paris, this “Queen of Boogie Woogie” spreads the gospel of Chicago-based blues piano and boogie woogie. She’s well steeped in the stylings of Otis Spann, Memphis Slim, Sunnyland Slim and Albert Ammons – the greats of boogie and blues, and honed her skills working with contemporary artists Steve Freund, Otis Rush and the late Hank Ballard. “…her piano work is of the first order… a sweet-voiced chanteuse with a strong reliance on jazz phrasing and inflection.” www.wendydewitt.com

Kenny Washington is a jazz vocalist virtuoso. Emulating the classic styles of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn and infusing colors of Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway, Kenny’s free, playful approach, with over a four-octave range is awe inspiring. His tone on ballads is liquid, his scat is rapid-fire, passionate, melodious and inventive. “a vocalist with an exuberantly supple tenor that glides effortlessly into the stratosphere. Capable of astounding improvisational flights, he can also croon with an emotional intensity that’s bracing.” – San Francisco Chronicle www.kennywashingtonvocalist.com

The Band:
Max Perkoff (piano & trombone), an active musician in the San Francisco Bay Area, Max tours the country and has played at many of the great jazz rooms including Jazz at Lincoln Center and Yoshi’s.
