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.”

Zoli’s Virtual Fans Catapult New Single “Like A Star”

Hungarian pop sensation ZOLI launched his latest single “Like a Star” this week on the shoulders of virtual fans across the globe.

On Aug. 8, ZOLI concluded a Facebook contest where fans voted “Like a Star” to the first of three singles released – a unique, fan-focused approach that is paying off.

ZOLI’s work is a soulful pop-fusion. A trained jazz singer, classical pianist, songwriter, and a pop idol in his native Hungary, ZOLI formed his own record label, Z Music Entertainment, in 2012 and works with an international team, including noted LA-based mixer Rudy Haeusermann (K$esha, Hanson, En Vogue and Tupac).

“Making music has to be a fun process,” ZOLI said in a recent interview. “And using tools like Facebook (www.facebook.com/zolimusic), my website (www.zolimusic.com), Jango, electronic polls, online contests and email to include my fans was very new and exciting.”

“Admittedly the hardest part of this kind of development is trying to keep the personal connection in a virtual world,” ZOLI said. And while it is the reaction of live audience that inspires him, social media and the Web transcends borders and brings ZOLI’s work to the wider world with this latest release.

Lua Hadar Debuts “French Connection” With Her Band, TWIST, At San Francisco’s Rrazz Room

Multi-talented and multi-lingual singer Lua Hadar and her band TWIST will debut their new show, “French Connection,” at The Rrazz Room, Hotel Nikko Union Square, 222 Mason Street, San Francisco, on Sunday September 13 at 3 PM. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at www.therrazzroom.com or directly through www.ticketweb.com or 866-468-3399.

Lua Hadar, a unique and original vocalist with a soaring range, interprets lyrics in several languages with a charming, swinging delivery. Just back from a hit in Paris and following acclaimed performances in New York and Bangkok, Lua Hadar presents an afternoon of her signature “jazz without borders.” The show features new arrangements of international standards, original songs, and of course, lots of French tunes. “I was blown away by the appreciation of the Parisian public,” says Hadar, “and I am so inspired to sing the French music I collected.”

Lua Hadar sings jazz influenced by pop, funk, Latin and international cabaret. This astonishingly talented, Broadway-influenced performer has garnered raves around the world. Hadar’s love for The Great American Songbook, her appreciation for new songwriting, and her fascination with world cultures influence her music. Lua’s style as a vocalist has been molded by exchange experiences in places as diverse as Bali, Russia, Switzerland, Japan, Thailand, France and Italy. Her interest in world cultures is reflected in the sophisticated song choices for TWIST.

After graduating summa cum laude with a B.A. in Theatre Performance, Lua attended Manhattan’s celebrated Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre and The Dalcroze School of Music. As a young actress, she did everything from delivering singing telegrams dressed as a gorilla to appearing in Off Broadway shows. Her love for languages led to a 5-year residency in Italy, with a Verona-based Italian theatre company, where she played hundreds of performances on tour in Spain, Switzerland and all over Italy.

Her company, New Performance Group, produces original material and music performances, and delivers instruction in the performing arts.
