The first of its kind digital series promises over 100-plus hours of content from an expansive list of artists, rolled out over a six-week period all for a one-time subscription purchase. A statement from 11E1even Group stated, “The mission is simple – to provide viewers a constant flow of easily accessible, never before seen digital content in the coming months.”
The series will feature an array of content from a variety of locales, including live-streamed sets from artists’ homes and rehearsal spaces, as well as live archival footage, masterclasses from artists, and even cooking lessons.
“I’m seeing this just like any curated channel,” 11E1even Group owner Ben Baruch said. “This is a crazy time for every single person and company, big or small…we’re all feeling it, so let’s figure out how to come together from the confines of our own home, stay positive, watch great content and raise money for those in need while doing so. I want music, comedy, cooking shows, infomercials, masterclasses and more. Who knows what other talents your favorite musicians may have and I’m excited to show it. We have been working on this nonstop for last week and very excited about what we have coming.”
Proceeds from Live From Out There subscriptions will benefit Sweet Relief’s COVID-19 fund, which uses donations to provide support for music industry professionals who have lost their livelihoods as a result of increased preventative measures to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus and the deadly disease it causes, COVID-19. This includes but is not limited to lodging, food, clothing, and financial assistance as the entire industry attempts to navigate these uncertain and unprecedented times.
Additionally, Fender has donated a Vintera 50’s Telecaster and Vintera 50’s Precision Bass to the Sweet Relief Musicians fund, and both will be randomly given away to two lucky fans who subscribe to the Live From Out There series.
