SMC Entertainment, Inc. (SMCE) Takes First Steps Into India's Multimillion Dollar Music Market With New Artist Maya Venus

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - June 03, 2015) - SMC Entertainment, Inc. (OTC PINK: SMCE) (the "Company"), a record label and content distribution company, is pleased to announce it is taking its first steps into the multimillion dollar Indian music marketplace with the artist Maya Venus.

SMC will be providing marketing and promotional services for the award-winning artist and producer, Maya Venus. Maya Venus is a talented and passionate Artist/Producer from Dubai. She is a classically trained singer who has been recognized for her versatility, showmanship, and range in her award-winning work as a Playback Singer. Her Hollywood debut single, "Star Tonight," was recently recorded at The Record Plant Recording Studios in Hollywood, CA and will be released followed by her debut album.

Maya Venus's achievements are numerous and diverse. Recently she was chosen to perform her single "Long Live the UAE" in front of tens of thousands of people at the 43rd UAE National Day celebrations. Her music video "Long Live the UAE" was released to coincide with her performance and received over 80,000 views in a single day shortly after its release.

The successes for Maya Venus extend beyond music as well. She is a successful Business Woman who recently won the International Women Excellence Award and is a role model for career women. She built her successful career through multiple activities including Advertising and Media Business, Movie Direction, Fashion Design, Modeling, On Screen Performance, Live Performance, Dancing (Salsa/Zouk), Feng Shui Practitioner, Holistic Practice, and of course through sheer hard work, persistence, and belief in her capabilities and talents. She has won numerous awards in Fashion Design, starting with The most Innovative Designer of the Year Award from the Design school and going on to earn numerous national and international awards as time passed.

SMC Entertainment's CEO Ralph Tashjian commented, "India is an emerging market of independent artists' music nestled against a soundtrack dominated market. The Indian Music Industry is a developing industry that we believe is capable of generating sizeable revenue in multiple genres." Mr. Tashjian went on to say, "We see Rdio, one of the world's largest international streaming music services, now competitively offering their services in India, and a slew of other regional music companies as a sign that the time to step into the Indian market is now. We are very excited to be working with Maya Venus and working with her is a step to further the reach of SMC Entertainment through marketing and promotional services in the Middle East and India. We believe there is potential for great growth and the Indian market will be a major content creating entity in the imminent future."

While Maya Venus's first single "Star Tonight" is scheduled to release early summer 2015, SMC is actively in discussions to work with additional star musicians from the territory to provide marketing and promotional services.
