Artist Social Networking Site Talenthouse.com Launches30 Jun, 2009 By: Billy Gil
Talenthouse, an online platform for artists in various fields, launched June 30 at www.talenthouse.com.
The site provides an outlet for creative talent in music, fashion, art, film and photography. The site is committed to up-and-comers and established artists alike, with access to video, music and to cross-promotion on other social platforms, such as MySpace, Twitter and Facebook.
The site has launched with talent such as Oscar-nominated director Fernando Meirelles (City of God), actor Stephen Dorff, singer Kylie Minogue and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the latter of which is using Talenthouse’s exclusive “Creative Invitation” to seek collaboration for an original project. Such projects can be commissioned by any artist on Talenthouse, and the community in turn can vote on collaborations.
“Coming up first as an artist then as a producer in the music industry, I saw so many talented young people that had no way of being seen and heard,” said Amos Pizzey, a British recording artist and advertising executive who masterminded Talenthouse. “For us the Internet is the ultimate tool for them to create, collaborate and liberate their art for all time.”
