TIDAL Celebrates Homegrown Artists With New Rising Georgia Series
New TIDAL RISING special series will feature Tom The Mail Man, Lunar Vacation, Sakura, and SwaVay
Highlights Atlanta, Georgia as a fountain for emerging talent
NEW YORK, November 16, 2022 – Global music and entertainment streaming service TIDAL announced today a special edition of its TIDAL RISING documentary series, shining a light on four emerging artists across multiple genres, all hailing from Georgia – Lunar Vacation, Sakura, SwaVay, and Tom The Mail Man.
For decades, Georgia has been a melting pot of diverse musical talent that has influenced music scenes nationwide and globally. TIDAL RISING is a program dedicated to empowering up-and-coming artists, and this new documentary series will introduce music fans to local talent and Georgia’s music culture.
Over the next month, all artists participating in the series will receive out of home and online marketing and promotional support from TIDAL to help them reach new and existing fans. In Downtown Atlanta, each artist will take over the billboard at 75 MLK to reach new and current local fans.
“It’s an honor to be selected as one of four artists that TIDAL has chosen to bring Georgia’s music scene to a global stage,” said SwaVay. “Atlanta has been home my whole life and has helped shape my own style and sounds. I hope others can find inspiration from the culture of this city that we’re celebrating through this instalment of TIDAL RISING.”
“By design, TIDAL RISING is artist-first and everything we do is to help artists share their story and showcase their talent to engage fans,” said Jason Kpana, SVP, Artist & Label Relations at TIDAL. “Georgia’s musical heritage spans time and styles so it was only right that TIDAL is giving homage by partnering with four artists to show the range of emerging talent.”
