Today, NewReleaseToday joined forces with Visible Music College and Madison Line Records to launch Virtual Music Tour, an online platform that will connect artists and bands with audiences worldwide for online concerts and events.
The idea was formed from multiple questions that needed answers. In light of the current environment, how can a tour go online?
How do artists and creatives save money as the market keeps changing?
How do artists find a way to tour a record while keeping a family unit intact?
How can audiences that are physically challenged, chronically ill, socially anxious and fearful still connect with their favorite artists and the power of live music?
How can bands engage with young families and those who cannot afford a night out?
How do we bring worship to the lonely and disenfranchised?
Music is important. Music is most needed right now! We have seen many of our touring friends out of work for an unforeseen amount of time. The venues where they can play at are closing. Churches, restaurants, coffee shops and bars are closed for the foreseeable future.
We are booking dates from wherever you are to whatever your audience.
Most importantly, we share our community's audiences and join together the 99% of the Christian world that is NOT in a huge church and is NOT in a super-resourced place and is NOT waiting around for the end of the world or the next job or policy to collapse.
We are kingdom-minded people in authentic worship movements of every size, musicians with original creative output, and artists with something important to say to the world.
