6-TIME JUNO NOMINEE CAROL WELSMAN
IS BACK WITH SOMETHING JUST ‘FOR YOU’
HER FIRST CROWD-SOURCED RELEASE

In what became a direct and engaged conversation with her fans, internationally acclaimed jazz pianist and vocalist Carol Welsman leveraged the unique power of social media and her tight-knit community to crowd-source what songs are included in her newest release, ‘For You’ — out October 20th.

In Summer 2017, Welsman turned to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and her website to tease 30 second clips of 23 tracks originally released in Japan, and asked her audience to vote for their favourites. With almost 5,000 entries tabulated to select 15 final tracks, Welsman very much ensured ‘For You’ was indeed for them — her fans.

Those who registered also received an executive producer credit on the album artwork and the ability to pre-order a signed discounted copy of the final CD. By pre-ordering they will also receive a free download of the most voted track, “Skylark.”

“I am thrilled at the extraordinary response we received to this social media experiment,” shares Welsman. “It was really exciting to engage directly with those who participated in the selection of music. I am grateful to all my loyal fans and hope everyone enjoys the recording created by you FOR YOU!”
