Exclusive Public’s Got That FUNK. We are now representing George Clinton’s Granddaughters, Kandy Apple Redd!

Have you ever heard of George Clinton of Parliament Funkadelic? Of course you have! With hits like “Flashlight” and music that has been sampled by most well known rappers, if you don’t know who George Clinton is, you must have been hiding under a rock all this time. George Clinton and the PFunk family have been around for decades. Most recently, their music has been featured throughout the Compton movie and was even featured on Kendrick Lamar’s last album and now it seems that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, Kandy Apple that is, as George Clintons granddaughters Tonysha and Patavia, who make up the sassy group called Kandy Apple Redd aim to keep the legacy alive by releasing their own album in 2016.

Currently on a world tour with their grandfather George Clinton, Kandy Apple Redd have been recording an album of their own, and we’re excited to announce that they have joined the Exclusive Public team in order to make sure that they do it properly.

We’ve been working with the girls and their label, Home Grown Entertainment for the last few months, building their websites, picking songs for their upcoming album, building their social media presence, booking shows and interviews and more.

Currently the girls are preparing to release their first single entitled “Bring It Home” which features George Clinton himself.

Stay tuned to see what the girls have in store! For now, be sure to follow them on Twitter @KandyAppleRedd and check out their website for more updates.

Exclusive Public Founder Speaks On Sonicbids Panel at This Years A3C Festival

A3C [All 3 Coasts] Festival & Conference is the preeminent hip hop event in the US, showcasing 500+ artists, from living legends to aspiring talent, and 2015 happened to be the biggest year yet.  The 5-day festival takes place annually in Atlanta, GA and is an incomparable platform to interact with influential labels, brands, media and artists within the hip-hop community.

This year, our founder, Brianna DeMayo was invited by SonicBids to speak on their “Doing It Live: How to Get The Attention of Top Talent Buyers” Panel, representing her renowned Philadelphia showcase, #PhillySoundSessions.

The panel had almost 200 attendees, which mostly consisted of indie artists looking for knowledge, as well as publicists, managers and other talent buyers. The panel lasted an hour and everything from “how do I get booked for a show” to “what really makes promoters want to book artists” was answered.

Brianna received a great response from the panel that she had to stick around for forty-five minutes speaking with attendees and answering their questions.

We would like to thank Kaylee over at Sonicbids for reaching out and making this happen.

Check out some photos from our A3C festival journey below.

“The Twitter account of Brianna DeMayo is one that I’ve just recently stumbled upon, and the timing couldn’t be better upon the creation of this list. The tagline of @breezyb215 is that she turns indie artists into entrepreneurs – what rising musician doesn’t like the sound of that? There’s no shortage of content from DeMayo as she fires off tweets on a consistent basis, and her messages to indie artists tend to be spot on.” – Eric Bernsen, Sonicbids

We are honored to announce that our founder, Brianna DeMayo, has been included among industry leaders like Karen Civil, Amir Abbassy and Chase N. Cashe as one of the “Top 5 Twitter Accounts All Aspiring Hip-Hop Artists Should Follow Immediately.”
