Music industry update | New York, USA | Indie artist, Christina Custode

The world’s live music landscape has been forced to change dramatically over the past year owing to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis; and musicians are adapting, some better than others - much like their fans. For those who do it well, and with a little bit of luck, it could be just as rewarding, if not more rewarding in some cases, as it was back when live music venues, clubs, bars, concert halls, theatres, community events and music festivals provided not just a steady stream of revenue for musicians and bands but also an avenue to connect with existing fans and new fans. One such musician who is adapting well is New York’s Christina Custode, who, prior to the pandemic thrived independently and played some of the Big Apple’s most popular live music venues, concert halls and festivals. She has done well to make the transition to online gigs, and following a series of successful concerts with online concert streaming platform Sessions Live over the past few months she is back with a fresh new set of upcoming live stream concert dates. Tickets, live streaming information and links are available on the Skunk Radio Live Events page.

Music industry update | Tennessee, USA | Indie artist, Durt Boi

He's an artist with multiple talents both on and off the microphone, and an individual with a work ethic that is comparable to none. Memphis, Tennessee’s Durt Boi has been hailed by some of the South’s most discerning rap music critics and DJs as an artist whose music will always warrant and deserve a category of its own. He has reigned on the region’s underground hip hop scene for several years completely independently and has amassed a repertoire of music that is both commercially viable and true to its roots. His career reached an all time high in 2019 with the release of the critically acclaimed single “Twerkaholic”. He returned just over a year later with his latest single “Reasons” and announced that he’s preparing to take the show back on the road in the coming months, as the Coronavirus pandemic lockdowns around the world are tentatively eased and clubs, live music venues and concert halls start to open their doors to the public once again. Concert and tour dates will be announced as they become available and tickets will also be accessible via the Skunk Radio Live Events page. The new song “Reasons” is available to stream and download on Apple Music, Tidal, iTunes, Soundcloud, Spotify and all popular digital music streaming and download platforms worldwide.

I worked for a film production company and one day we had extra time on a set, so why not shoot a parody music video?”
