TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 31, 2016) - Keek (TSX VENTURE: KEK) (OTCQB: KEEKF) today announced that Warner Bros. Records will be utilizing the Peeks platform to showcase emerging artists. As part of the collaboration, featured emerging artists will be prominently positioned within the Peeks service, allowing users to have exclusive opportunities to interact directly with their favourite rising stars.
"We are excited to be showcasing new and emerging artists from Warner Bros. Records and believe the Peeks livestreaming platform combined with our schedule of original programming, which will include performances from emerging artists such as Dylan Gardner, can drive both awareness and a new fan base for both these artists and the Peeks platform," said Mark Itwaru, CEO of Keek.
Dylan signed a deal with Warner Bros. Records in 2014 before releasing his full-length debut "Adventures In Real Time." He logged 100-plus shows in support of the record, and its lead single, "Let's Get It Started," amassed 8 million-plus Spotify streams in a year's time. The record received plugs from Team Coco, Huffington Post, and YouTube superstars such as Shane Dawson and Joey Graceffa. Dylan Gardner's new single "Sign Language" will be released on November 11, 2016.
Dylan Gardner will be performing live tonight from the star-studded Halloween House Party event that will be exclusively streamed on the Peeks app (see press release dated October 25, 2016). The event guest list includes over 100 top celebrity influencers with a collective social media reach of over 50 million fans, and is providing the opportunity to showcase the new Peeks service on the ground as well as evaluate the capabilities of the service to broadcast a professionally produced live event. The Peeks app can be downloaded in either the Apple or Google app stores, or by visiting www.peeks.com.
