The New York Timescrowned the 13-track Blood Bunny a Critic’s Pick, and exclaimed On the robust and vividly plain-spoken ‘Blood Bunny,’ Moriondo is a pop-punk whiz, deftly hopping between musical approaches from spare to lushly produced, and emphasizing intimate, cut-to-the-bone lyrics. The Line of Best Fit hailed the record as Moriondo’s boldest, brightest and most ambitious project to date, while Dork Magazine raved, it’s obvious that [Blood Bunny] is a big deal in a five-star review. FLOOD Magazine praised the record’s intricate production blending cozy pop and rock riffs and UPROXX declared, Blood Bunny is a departure from the sound on Moriondo’s previous work, employing a full band to create alternative rock songs that sound absolutely massive with excellent songwriting.

Blood Bunny was heralded by the release of April single I Eat Boys, a deceptively breezy track inspired by the queer cult classic film Jennifer’s Body, twisting an instance of street harassment into a cannibalistic daydream. In addition to Éc;I Eat Boys,Éd; the albumfeatures previously released singles Manta Rays, GIRL ON TV, and I Want To Be With You, the latter of which was lauded by The New York Times as acutely observed bedroom pop served with a side of arena-emo triumph. Recently labeled one of 2021’s Artists To Watch by PEOPLE and NME, Chloe has racked up praise from BillboardUPROXXRefinery29them., E!, and more. The artist has also become a sought-after collaborator, recently appearing as a featured artist on tracks with Frances Forever, mxmtoon and Ricky Montgomery.

With her relatable, confessional lyrics and idiosyncratic humor, the singer-songwriter has built a devoted fanbase of millions, sharing her authentic self to create a genuine connection with her listeners.

Vinfolio’s New Chief Technology Officer

Vinfolio Announces New Chief Technology Officer, Stephen Mutch

Vinfolio, one of the country’s leading fine-wine companies, is pleased to announce its hire of new Chief Technology Officer Stephen Mutch. Mutch will be leading the development of strategic technology solutions that align with Vinfolio’s goal to make buying, selling, and storing fine wine a seamless, technology-driven experience for collectors.

“Stephen brings a wealth of industry-related tech experience to Vinfolio, both as an entrepreneur and with WineDirect,” says Adam Lapierre, Vinfolio’s President. “We are confident that Stephen’s contribution to the company will position us for true innovation, solidifying our role as the market leader in our space.”

Mutch was raised in San Diego, California. After serving in the United States Marine Corps, he began his career in technology in one of the largest data centers in Southern California. That experience highlighted his passion for online applications and the utilization of technology to simplify complex problems. After relocating to Napa, California in 2006, Mutch took his technical expertise to the wine industry, landing a position with the startup Inertia Beverage Group, now WineDirect—where he eventually became Vice President. With WineDirect, Mutch learned the unique challenges and needs of the wine industry, as well as the complexities of its highly regulated marketplace. In 2011, Mutch left WineDirect to develop his own proprietary, end-to-end solution that simplified commerce, customer management, compliance, and shipping for hundreds of wineries and retailers within the industry.

“I am excited to be joining the team at Vinfolio and to be a part of an organization that is hyper-focused on delivering exceptional consumer experiences,” Mutch says. “The future of this company and the opportunities in the marketplace are exciting. I look forward to developing a strong technology strategy and infrastructure to meet its needs.”

Vinfolio transforms how the fine wine community buys, sells, manages, and enjoys fine wine with advanced cellar management technology, fine wine storage facilities, and a direct-to-consumer ecommerce platform. Combined, these systems empower the fine wine enthusiast to acquire highly collectible wine directly from producers, purchase and sell wine from Vinfolio’s collector marketplace, stay on top of every bottle in their cellar, and engage with other fine wine collectors, industry influencers, and winemakers—all in one seamless experience.

Vinfolio is majority-owned by Executive Chairman Don St. Pierre Jr. and his business partner and good friend Allan Warburg, co-founder and co-CEO of Bestseller Fashion Group China. St. Pierre is the recipient of numerous wine industry accolades, including being named number seven on Decanter magazine’s 2011 Top 50 global wine industry power players and selected by Wine Enthusiast Magazine as the 2011 International Man of the Year. In 2012, the French government awarded St. Pierre Jr. the degree of Knight in the French Ordre du Mérite Agricole, and in 2015, he was appointed as a member of the supervisory board of Vinexpo Overseas. Vinfolio’s ownership also includes Jean-Michel Valette, who chairs the Education and Examination Board (EEB) of the Institute of Masters of Wine and is former chairman of Robert Mondavi Corporation and Peet’s Coffee, and Jon Moramarco, former CEO of Constellation Brands.

Save Our Stages

By: Gabrielle Archuleta

With Covid-19 making an impact on businesses, the live music industry has been among those hit the hardest. The loss in revenue is estimated to be $8.9 billion, along with the comedy and performing arts entertainment. More than 90% of independent venues are at risk of being permanently shut down. The National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) is working hard to get emergency relief funds out to these venues in dire need. With the help of YouTube, NIVA and Save Our Stages created a virtual concert to help raise money, which will benefit these independent venues. The list of venues is on their website. Artists from around the country have joined together in an effort to raise awareness and save the stages they once performed in.

These venues have supported many big artists and have even launched careers for many. Not only are the artists feeling the impact, but the employees behind the scenes are as well. From the sound to the stage crew, many of them are left without a job and fear what will come next. Fans are left with tickets to be refunded and the uncertainty of future shows to come. This leaves the music industry shaken when it comes to the revenue that concerts bring. Concerts generate more money than streaming music on popular platforms such as Spotify, Apple music and Pandora. Popular artists such as Drake have made $23.7 million in one year from streaming, yet his last tour, Summer Sixteen featuring Future, grossed $85 million. Save our stages is the saving platform for artists, fans and lovers of music to support the venues we know and love and keep the live music alive.

Kicking off their first ever virtual event, an exclusive trailer narrated by Neil Young released footage featuring various iconic artists performing in these at-risk venues and some of the earliest known footage of Neil Young performing at the American Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford, CT. This 3-day virtual event lasted from October 16th-18th. Day one started out with Alec Benjamin performing at Hotel Café in Los Angeles, CA. There was no audience, just the performers. Some talked of past show experiences and selling out venues. Following him was Billie Eilish’s brother, Finneas who is breaking out on his own, releasing his first single called Can’t Wait To Be Dead. Other artists for day one included, Sebastian Yatra, Dizzy Fae, Macklemore, YG, and Dillon Francis. Marshmellow and Demi Lovato hit the stage at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA. They performed their hit single together It’s Okay Not To Be Okay, as well as talked about their experiences in independent venues they’ve played in and seen other artists play in. Macklemore performed in Seattle, WA singing hits that included Ten Thousand Hours, Glorious, Good Old Days and a few others during his thirty-minute set. While G-Eazy took pieces of his hits and performed over a dozen songs in his set at The Independent in San Francisco, CA.

Day two kicked off with an even bigger list of performers. Sixteen artists each in their own independent venue to perform in. Jason Mraz was the first up, singing the best of his songs from I’m Yours to I Won’t Give Up out of the Belly Up Tavern in San Diego, CA. Rise Against brought the rock style back to the stage singing six of their hits from the Metro in Chicago,IL. Miley Cyrus played at the Whiskey-Go-Go in Los Angeles, CA wearing all black Rockstar attire. Though she had a short playlist, it was filled with fun energy. Also playing out of Los Angles from Troubadour, the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl talks about his first experience at the Toubadour and meeting Bret Michaels for the first time. They start out with Skin and Bones continue with My Hero, These Days, Times Like These and end it with everyone’s favorite Everlong. The Roots performed a longer set list that lasted a little over an hour at the Apollo Theater in New York, NY. Wrapping up day two was Major Lazor performing out of Gramps in Miami, FL. He had a setlist similar to length of The Roots lasting a little over an hour and promoting Save Our Stages throughout his set. To many of these artists, the venues that are at stake are not only where they got their start in the music world but also where they discovered music. Demi Lovato mentions one of her first concerts was at an independent venue where she had seen Paramore.

The final day came with some big names. Little Big Town plays at the Exit/In in Nashville, TN. They talk about their first show and replayed one of their classic songs, Boondocks as an encore. The last song is a fan favorite, Girl Crush. Dave Matthews performs solo at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, VA. His setlist includes a new song that is played for the first-time live called the Ocean and the Butterfly. The Lumineers wrap up this event, taking it back home to Colorado at the Boulder Theatre in Boulder, CO. Reminiscing on the songs they’ve played in small independent venues and how great songs such as Ophelia came from those experiences and performing them.

Save our stages is not just important to the artists, but to the fans and music lovers all over the nation. There are over 2,000 venues that have joined the National Independent Venue Association to help save theses venues and keep not only the jobs that come with it but the live music experience we love and miss. Though this virtual event is over, the fight is not. Save our venues has raised over $1,000,000 and has a set goal of $5,000,000. The funds will be administered by the Giving Back Fund, a non-profit organization. The money will go to the venues in dire need and in fear of being shut down. With the help of all the artists who participated along with Youtube, NIVA and every person who donated, we can only hope that enough money is raised to save these venues.

TELLY AWARDS

Summers Strategies Wins Three Coveted Telly Awards Honoring Excellence in Video and Advertising

National strategic communications and marketing firm Summers Strategies won three coveted Telly Awards for video advertising and social media campaigns on behalf of not-for-profit organizations across the country last year.

Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards honors video and television made for all screens and is judged by The Telly Award Judging Council; a group of leading video and television experts from some of the most prestigious companies in entertainment, publishing, advertising, and emerging technology.

Summers, a national company with deep roots and offices in suburban Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas, Nevada, received the news this morning.

The awards were for three campaigns representing the diversity of the firm’s clients. They were:

A Silver award for Local TV General-Political Issues/Campaign Advertising for “Virginia’s Superpower,” a 30-second ad on behalf of Energy Foundation promoting clean energy policies. You can watch the ad here.

“These ads and social media videos were held up against some of the biggest names in our industry, so this recognition means a lot to our team,” Jon Summers, president of Summers Strategies, said. “But  beyond that, these awards also make it clear that you don’t need an endless budget to produce content that moves people and delivers results. Since we work with a lot of clients who have limited budgets to drive major changes in the world, that’s important.”

Summers Strategies also won a Bronze award in 2017 for branded content produced for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Among the past winners of the Telly Awards are some of the world’s largest and most influential communications companies, including Bloomberg, CBS Interactive, Comcast, Condé Nast, DC Entertainment, Discovery Communications, Disney, ESPN, Fox, HBO, Hearst, Microsoft, MLB, NBC, PBS, The Guardian, The History Channel, Time Warner, Universal, Univision, Viacom and Vice+.

Snapdragon and Rubyfrost Apples X San Diego Zoo

SNAPDRAGON AND RUBYFROST APPLES FROM NEW YORK

San Diego Zoo to ‘Exhibit’ the Indigenous, New York SnapDragon

The hottest apple from New York with the Monster Crunch to be given out at pop-up sampling event at the world-famous San Diego Zoo.

On Saturday, February 22nd, Crunch Time Apple Growers will be giving out SnapDragon apples at the San Diego Zoo during a pop-up sampling event that’s happening right on Front Street — the main thoroughfare into the Zoo.

Last year on that date, the Zoo had 15,500 attendees walk down Front Street — which is why Crunch Time chose this high-traffic location for its pop-up sampling event.

“The San Diego Zoo is a national destination for families. And Front Street gets a ton of foot traffic, which makes it the ideal place to give out this incredible apple to potentially thousands of people,” says Rena Montedoro, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Crunch Time. “The name of the apple is also an ideal tie-in with SnapDragon’s ‘Monster Crunch’ tagline…even the word ‘Dragon’ makes it seem like a unique zoo exhibit featuring an exotic creature. It just all fits together.”

In addition to putting on the pop-up sampling event, Crunch Time will be co-sponsoring an online sweepstakes where consumers can win 4 tickets to the San Diego Zoo and their ‘Animals in Action’ tour, with tour tickets provided by the San Diego Zoo. Crunch Time will cover the hotel expenses for the 4 winners — along with providing them with a box of SnapDragon apples, apparel, and up to $1000 in airfare.

“Even though people come to the Zoo from all over the country, sampling this apple in a key, West Coast location enables us to shine the spotlight on one of Northeast’s and New York’s hottest apples — specifically a variety with such a unique flavor profile like SnapDragon,” adds Montedoro.

Bite a Crunch Time Apple. Support a Farmer!
When you bite into a Crunch Time apple, you’re not just tasting an incredible apple, but the incredible love and labor of 147 family farmers across New York State. Every Crunch Time apple is non-GMO, super crunchy, delightfully juicy, beautifully colored and carefully grown. Plus, when you purchase a Crunch Time apple, you’re not only biting into a little history, you’re helping to sustain the future of family farming for generations to come.
