Kacey Musgraves … is everywhere

Musgraves

Former Triple Pop artist Kacey Musgraves performed her hit Billboard single “Merry Go Round” on The Jimmy Fallon show last month.

Kacey has been nominated for three American Country Music Awards, including ‘Video of the Year’ as both artist and producer, and ’Female Vocalist of the Year’, where Musgraves is up against the likes of Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood.

Kacey was recently profiled as an up-and-coming artist in country music in The Hollywood ReporterThe New York Times, Huffington Post, LA Times, and USA Today.   And my hometown paper, The Columbus Dispatch, too.  She’s everywhere.

Her debut major label album, Same Trailer Different Park (Mercury/Universal), was released just this week and it’ll debut in Billboard Top 10 albums of the week – pretty impressive!  We’re so happy for Ms. Mugraves.  When we met her so many years ago, she had a special something and we knew she was destined for greater things.

You can hear/buy Kacey Musgraves’ version of the song “See You Again” which you can find on iTunes and Amazon on Triple Pop’s Stars of Montana album compilation.

Apple’s iTunes has now sold 25 billion songs

iTunesApple has reported that its iTunes retail store has now sold more than 25 billion download songs (25,000,000,000)!  The 25 billionth song “Monkey Drums” (Goksel Vancin remix) by Chase Buch was purchased by Phillip Lupke in Germany, who will receive a $10,000 Euro iTunes Gift card.

iTunes is the number one retailer of music worldwide and averages 15,000 songs downloaded every minute.  It’s been an astonishing rise to see a platform reach such worldwide scale … which didn’t even exist ten years ago!

Triple Pop is a proud iTunes authorized Content Distributor.  We were one of the very first indie labels to  sign a digital distribution contract with Apple way back in 2006.  We were thankful that such a great company would choose to give our tiny operation such an opportunity.  God Bless Steve Jobs!

Ernie Halter & Justin Bieber YouTube video duet clip

Justin Bieber surprised Ernie Halter by showing up at Ernie’s show at La Cave in Costa Mesa – we thought we’d share the YouTube video here. Justin also covered Ernie’s song, “Come Home to Me” at a concert in Hong Kong.  This video clip is their impromptu duet of that song.

Ernie Halter’s Uncovered: The Youtube Sessions is available on Amazon, iTunes and other retailers from Triple Pop.

Seed-at-Zero

Triple Pop is proud to present the debut album from Seed-at-Zero, which is now available for pre-order from iTunesSeed-at-Zero is the alter-ego of Whitney Mower, a 23 year-old Utah-born musician and singer. She’s been writing songs ever since, inspired by artists like Sun Kil Moon, Kate Bush, Jason Molina, and Radiohead.

The self-titled debut album was made with the help of her closest friends in Salt Lake City and Provo, Utah. The songs are dedicated to her mother Kathryn Jordan, an extraordinary dancer and singer, who died in 2009.

Whitney Mower

The six-track album features the original songs “This Thing” which narrates the astronaut’s plight, what you might call a parodic aria of “Rocket Man.” “In a Steam” is a story of love in the apocalypse. “Deianeira” (one of Hercules’s many women) is a song Whitney wrote specifically for her mother, about the ways women are conditioned to spend their lives pining for men, keep their suffering and their minds hidden; Kathryn’s actual voice, found recorded on an old tape, is featured on “Deianeira.”

The digital version on iTunes also features two bonus tracks: “How Your Mouth” (Original Demo) and “It Ain’t Me Babe” (Cover of Bob Dylan).
