Warner Music in Brazil has opened a new HQ in Rio de Janeiro, bringing Warner Music Brazil, Warner Chappell Music Brazil, and ADA Brazil under one roof. “We are THRILLED about the unveiling of our new home”, says Warner Music Brazil President Leila Oliveira. “Our aim is to provide partners and collaborators with an inviting and liberating space for creation. Featuring a spectrum of resources, from recording studios to collaborative lounges, we envision our new office as a vital hub for artists across Brazil – a space where novel ideas and expressions come to life”.
SoundCloud has partnered with Fadr, Soundful and Voice-Swap to offer AI tools to its users. “At SoundCloud, we take pride in being ground zero for musical experimentation”, says CEO Eliah Seton. “That’s why we’re home to what’s next in music. AI is top of mind for us in this context, and we’re excited about how this technology can be applied to serve and empower artists. These partners, which we’ve selected intentionally, reflect the very best of what the industry has to offer in this arena: tools that open up new creative avenues and make artists’ lives a little bit easier”.
The latest round of artists to receive support from the PPL Momentum Music Fund have been announced. They are: Alex Virgo, Cardinal Black, Cloth, CVC, Dani Larkin, Facesoul, Ishmael Ensemble, Lambrini Girls, Melin Melyn, Speakers Corner Quartet and Walt Disco.
