VOXI and Global team up to give fresh, young artists endless opportunities
NEW MONTHLY MUSIC SESSION VOXI UNFRAMED TO LAUNCH ON THE OFFICIAL VODAFONE BIG TOP 40
VOXI, a new mobile offering created for and by people aged 25 and under, and Global, the Media and Entertainment group, today unveiled VOXI Unframed – an incredible opportunity giving fresh, young artists a platform to showcase their talent on The Official Vodafone Big Top 40. VOXI Unframed is a monthly music session where a chosen artist or group are given the chance to shoot a music video in 360˚ and have a snippet of their performance played on the UK’s no.1 chart show.
VOXI Unframed kicks off with 20 year old Norfolk based pop-soul singer songwriter, Mullally who has been tipped as one of the UK’s next big breakout stars. With a dedicated fan base, his first three releases (Overdose, Troubled Love and Wonderful) amassed over six million streams online, and in 2016 he was announced as one of the Top 3 finalists of the MOBO Unsung Competition and named ‘Best Solo Male’ at the Unsigned Music awards. For his VOXI Unframed session, Mullaly chose to perform his favourite track, Wonderful, which can be viewed in 360˚ here*.
VOXI Unframed coincides with the launch of VOXI’s music and video Passes – a new way for VOXI customers to enjoy a selection of their favourite music and video apps without the worry of eating into their data allowance. Those who subscribe to a Pass from now until the 15th of February will enjoy them for free for six months.
Dan Lambrou, head of VOXI says: “We want our customers to be able to use their phones in a way that suits them, and we know that streaming music and video is a key part of their mobile experience. Our new Passes will give them access to endless data on the apps that they love. We’re also really excited to be teaming up with Global to help give young, unsigned talent a springboard into the industry on The Official Vodafone Big Top 40.”
