Breaking a new artist with a music video is tough. Hundreds of new videos pop up daily and it’s hard to stand out amongst the clutter of well shot multimedia. Despite the competitive landscape, S. Curve and artist Andy Grammer are hoping that their innovative new clip will find a place in the hearts and ears of the online music fans. The music video, which is Grammer’s first, is a “Choose Your Own Adventure” style romp through a hotel. Viewers can seamlessly redirect Grammer with a click on the screen creating scores of unique outcomes. S. Curve and CEO Steve Greenberg always seem to have a creative new trick up their sleeves and this video is a cool way repeated viewings. You can watch the video on Vevo.

If you have a show coming up in Brooklyn it doesn’t make sense to tell people in Central Iowa about it. That’s why Headliner has Geo Targeting, a Pro feature that lets you connect with fans in specific areas to promote your music. The next time you are creating a promotion give it a try. Just select an area in the right side of the “Artist Discovery” window and Headliner will filter out all the artists outside of that region.
