My special guest to kick-off off our new season 07 is Shevy Smith. Amongst her many talents, she is the founder of the new and already popular Ultimate Playlist App. Ultimate Playlist gives you the opportunity to win a minimum of $2k and a chance to win a $20k jackpot each day, simply for listening to, rating, and/or adding songs to your Apple Music playlist. I will add links so you can grab this outstanding app for yourself. The prizes are powered by the Arizona State Lottery, which, like many state lotteries, offers free, non-lottery games to help drive user engagement.
Listen in as Shevy gives us insight into her background...her personal journey and her growing tally of achievements she's bagged to date. Here is a brief summary of her bio to help you get into the vibe...
After signing a publishing deal in Nashville as a teenager and working as a writer and college touring artist, Smith migrated to the west coast and began a series of ventures designed to support other emerging artists. She created Forte Poesy, a youth-focused music education program empowering kids through songwriting and musicianship, whose curriculum was implemented in public and private schools in NYC, LA , and London. During this time, she also wrote, produced, and engineered numerous national tv/film campaigns for ABC, NBC, Soapnet, and ESPN, and in 2019, she teamed up with attorney and streaming technology expert Khalid Jones to form Elite Shout, a creative firm with the goal of leveraging emerging tech to provide innovative opportunities for developing and established recording artists.
Now, Shevy has introduced the Ultimate Playlist, a new mobile app that helps musicians grow their reach, by offering cash prizes to listeners who listen to and rate their songs. With 80,000 new songs uploaded to Spotify every day and the recording industry struggling to find new promotional avenues, Ultimate Playlist guarantees that artists will get their songs in front of active listeners, while also providing valuable data about how their music is being consumed
