Sony Music Nashville has partnered with SoundFi to present Stell and its other artists in a fully immersive environment for both fans and its strategic partners including radio stations and digital service providers. The partnership gives Sony Music artists the ability to perform live in SoundFi for virtual concerts, radio presentations, promotional events and more. Stell’s concert was recorded live with SoundFi’s proprietary 3D sound technology optimized for headphones and gives the listener the feeling as if they are seated front row, center stage at a concert.
“2020 has created significant challenges for all of us, and the immersive audio technology powered by SoundFi has helped us close the gap between artists and fans,” said Sony Music Nashville’s VP of Arista Nashville Promotion, Josh Easler. “We are excited to celebrate two #1 singles from Matt Stell and end this year with a bang!”
“We couldn’t be happier about our partnership with Sony Music Nashville and are thrilled to be their exclusive provider in this space,” SoundFi CEO and founder Chris Anastas added. “Hosting Matt’s end of year celebration on our platform is yet another way we continue to bring fans unique entertainment experiences with our cutting-edge technology. We are excited to be working with talented artists like Matt who are keen on pushing the boundaries to reach their audiences like never before.”
