Christof Straub


Here is the press release

Fans become shareholders of a Eurovision-Song 2018!

As from this Friday, 16th February 2018, 10pm (CET), fans can become part of a Eurovision song by purchasing shares of the track representing San Marino at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. Investors will then receive royalties from every stream and download of that track for the next 70 years. This unique opportunity is available on www.globalrockstar.com.

This year, Global Rockstar was engaged by 1in360 as the artistic director to assist in the selection for San Marino's ESC 2018 candidate. To choose the best candidate and song, 11 international artists (from Zimbabwe, Israel, Norway, Germany, San Marino, Italy, Malta, Finland, Austria) are performing their songs in a three-part TV-show on San Marino RTV, produced by 1in360.

The first show, in which the 11 candidates performed their first song, was broadcasted last Friday.

On Friday, the 16th of February, 8 p.m, show 2 will be broadcasted.

(livestream on https://youtu.be/ZSXINkIICFE

In show 2, all 11 artists will perform a second song. At the end of this show, 1in360 will select the best song for each of the 11 candidates under a system that considers both jury and public voting. In the final TV-show (3rd of March) the artist and song that will represent San Marino at the ESC will be selected out of all 11 candidates and songs presented.

From the end of show 2 until the final TV-show (from 16.2 -3.3), all ESC enthusiasts and music fans will be able to invest in their favorite artist and song on www.globalrockstar.com. All fans who invest are supporting the production of the 11 songs to a high-end track with the best producers, musicians and engineers.

In return, the fans become shareholders of that track and earn money by receiving royalties from the revenues generated by all streams and downloads for the next 70 years.

ESC songs in the past reached up to 120 mio streams on Spotify, which equals a revenue of approximately 960,000.- EUR. Owners of shares from the right track can make a great benefit.

But not only the ESC song investors will have a return: All supporters will receive royalties for 70 years from the track in which they invested: All 11 resulting productions will be published and marketed worldwide.

About Global Rockstar:

Global Rockstar was founded by the Austrian songwriter and producer Christof Straub (Papermoon, ZOË) and has conducted the world's largest online music contest during the past years.

In December 2017 Global Rockstar launched the first royalty-based crowdfunding-platform for music: Fans who invest in music productions become shareholders of the resulting track, and earn money by receiving royalties from the revenues generated by all streams and downloads of the track for the term of copyright.

„We are proud to give artists, fans and investors a new opportunity to take part in the music business with this innovation ", said Global Rockstar founder Christof Straub. „A global smash hit can generate 100,000 EUR a day on streaming platforms. Now fans and artists can equally profit from this new model."

ESCKAZ publishes another video interview with English subtitles with the semifinalist of the national selection of Ukraine for Eurovision 2018.

03. LAUD - Waiting

LAUD is a stage name of the Ukrainian singer and composer Vlad Karaschuk, under which he began performing in the spring of 2017 after signing a contract with manager of Jamala | Джамала Igor Tarnopolskiy Игорь Тарнопольский and the label Enjoy Records.

Vlad Karaschuk was born in Kyiv on October 14, 1997 in a family of professional musicians. Vlad began to learn music at the age of four, attended private lessons, and then entered the music school for guitar. Already then he began to take part in guitar competitions. After graduation from the school, Vlad entered the Kyiv Gliere Institute of Music at the department of pop vocal. In parallel with his studies in Kyiv, he studied at the American Music Academy. From the age of 9 Karaschuk took part in children's vocal competitions, among which are "Krok do zirok", "Black Sea Games", "Slavic Bazaar", "Junior Eurovision" and "Kids New Wave" preselections. Practically in all of them he became a diploma winner or a laureate.

Producers of the contest "New Wave" noticed a talented guy and began to invite him to their concerts, where he was invited to perform duets with the already recognized pop stars, such as Ivan Dorn or Dima Bilan. Also as a cover-band soloist, Vlad performed at the Kaunas Jazz Festival in Lithuania and drove through the cities of Germany. Millions of viewers remember his performances of hits "Seven Days", "Running", "Killing Me Softly" and "Happy", which revealed his performing talent and unique manner.

Then the performer was offered to collaborate with the manager of Jamala Igor Tarnopolsky. This is how the new stage of Vlad Karaschuk's career started under the name LAUD. The official start is considered to be his debut on May 12, 2017 on the stage of the Kyiv Palace of Sports as a warm-up act at the solo concert of Jamala, during which he presented the eight thousandth audience three new selfwritten songs. Two weeks later, all of the leading radio stations in Ukraine launched his debut single, and in the middle of summer, on July 19, premiered the first music video, "U tsiu nich." At the moment, the video was seen over 200 thousand times.

The next single "Ne zalyshai" was released on December 12, 2017 at the same time as the music video and by the end of the week topped the chart of the Ukrainian iTunes Store. Currently LAUD is working on the new material and is preparing for his first solo concert, which will be held on March 21, 2018 in the Kyiv club Bel étage.

"Song Waiting is about human imperfection, different ways of dealing with this imperfection, ways to find your own individual version of how comfortable it is for you to live, and how to cope with all the difficulties in life. I wrote the song with the sound producer Morphom, and the lyrics were written by Katya Rogovaya.

The stage performance will be very bright. With me on stage will be five backing vocalists, the song is very deep, and it needs a large number of vocals. And these guys will be involved also creating characters in the stage presentation. The performance will be unusual, interesting, connected with the concept of the song itself. The stage director is Konstantin Tomilchenko who also worked on Jamala's Eurovision staging"

The guys will sing the song "Lichtari" from their new album "Bisaidy", which is called a dedication to all fans of the band in Ukraine and abroad.

- I like that this year, as in the last two, there are a lot of young interesting musicians among the participants in the selection. Their music will be broadcast live throughout the country and will certainly find new listeners. But the most important thing is for them to understand what this competition is for, what they can bring to it and what it can give them in terms of creative development, "said O.Torvald frontman Zhenya Galich. - As for us, on February 14 we will present a video for the track "Likhtari", after which O.Torvald will go on concerts in Poland, Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria.

Switzerland has just picked their entry! ESCKAZ.com correspondent Desirée has seen the show in full. Here are her thoughts:

Today Switzerland selected their candidate for Lisbon out of six acts, after a selection process that started in September with a submission period for songs and artists and that culminated in today’s Entscheidungsshow (Decision Show). All six competing songs were written at a songwriting camp held especially for Eurovision.

The show started a bit old fashioned, but in a good way, as it featured Te Deum in a Swiss flavour with many copper instruments. Also Apollo, Timebelle’s entry from last year got this treatment. Not much later it was time to start with the six acts. With the usual green room breaks and a talk with the host of the show since a long time – Sven Epiney who seems to speak every language spoken in Switzerland, the show kept going and had a nice tempo.

The voting was 50-50 with an international jury consisting of Christoph Pellander (Germany), Eduardo Grassi (France), David Tserunyan (Armenia), Klert Duraj (Albania), Nicole Caligiore (Italy), Gisli M Baldursson (Iceland) and Tal Barnea (Israel). While initially it seemed Alejandro Reyes would win the jury vote with a land slide, things changed half way as ZIBBZ caught up and won the jury voting by four points.

The other 50% was televoting and also this was won by ZIBBZ – with a margin as well, as runner up Alejandro Reyes got 48p from the televote where ZIBBZ got 77 points. ZIBBZ was the first to perform and brought us some triangular props, in red and blue and a drum.

The song Stones is a midtempo pop rock theme with a country vibe. Vocally the lead singer was ok but there’s room for improvement, which also goes for the song as a whole that sounds pleasant but would have some trouble to stand out.
Overall a nice show to watch and a deserved winner in Switzerland! Looking forward to how this song will develop and how it'll work out in Lisbon, good luck!
