“TuneCore is committed to the plight of independent artists – over the years, it’s been increasingly difficult for independent artists to get the visibility that they deserve. For our partnership with the Listening Party Series, we see an opportunity to allow independent artists to tell their stories and share their music in conjunction with Feel Good Series who has been giving a voice to emerging talent for years. This highlights our core mission – to provide more platforms for up and coming artists – not just in South Africa but globally”. Jade Leaf, Believe Regional Director Southern & West Africa.
