The days may be darkening earlier around LA but not so for us at HQ, and what brightness we’ve seen.
Our thanks to FCB Chicago and aviation giant Boeing, for selecting Songtradr artist, Novation’s track, “Essence of Beauty” for their upcoming TV campaign which celebrates veterans as employees because of their technical and leadership skills. Nice message.
…and we’re gliding high after the launch of our brand new public profile pages with tipping function where fans can support artists directly because after all, it’s a good thing to support each other!
And now, elevated friends, read on for a few of the month’s highlights!
