Sony Music Entertainment Australia and ZigZagTV have announced the artists that will enter The ShareSpace, launching on Sunday October 15 – Hannah Waddell, Zachary Staines, Jessica Jade, Tayla Mae, Damielou, Take Two and Tai.
The eight individuals will be tasked to collaborate, create and share engaging music content for 30 days from October 15, alongside special guest hosts Jai Waetford and Alli Simpson.
From 7pm AEST on Sunday October 15, the artists’ experiences and music videos will be posted to The ShareSpace YouTube channel in the form of daily episodes, alongside exciting additional content across all social media channels. Tune in by subscribing to The ShareSpace YouTube channel.
19-year-old Australian singer, actress, model and radio personality Alli Simspon will return home from her LA base to co-host the series with local Sony Music recording artist and social media superstar Jai Waetford.
In a global first, an algorithm will collate data from the published content including likes, comments, views, shares and streams, to determine which of the talent has had the best engagement each week and ultimately, who is the most outstanding content creator at the end of the 30 days.
That artist will receive a global writing and collaboration experience and be signed to Sony Music Entertainment.
