New York, NY – May 27, 2020 – The Orchard today rolled out a new feature set for its mobile app OrchardGo, now available on both iOS and Android. The additional features will enable artists and their teams to strategically release new music based on an artist’s social landscape. The app’s initial launch allowed labels distributed by The Orchard to view playlist placements in real time, view track performance data, and pinpoint markets with key fan demographics. With new, enhanced capabilities, the app now gives artists a full, comprehensive view of their social engagement footprint and market visibility compared to other artists.
Artists can control, discover and message directly through social platforms via the app to find and engage with their biggest fans, even pinpointing fans by locations. The app monitors fan’s top interactions in algorithmic order through social posts, hashtags, follower count and geography. Additionally, OrchardGo actively monitors and alerts app users to view social media trends – indicating when and why artists are trending. This provides opportunities to engage with fans in real time.
With social media usage at an all-time high, OrchardGo’s capabilities deliver custom and meaningful connections with fans. Teams are able to make informative decisions and strategies, making it easier to plan releases and marketing campaigns.
“The Orchard is always working to empower the creative community by providing the best products and services in the market,” said Jacob Fowler, Chief Technology Officer, The Orchard. “The latest OrchardGo features shift from the apps in the marketplace that are focused on sales metrics and playlisting, to instead allow artists to find and directly engage with their fans. These features enable artists and their teams to develop more intricate promotional strategies for releases, making the possibility of reaching new audiences endless.”

The deal includes partnership of KondZilla’s YouTube Channel; one of the largest channels in the world.
New York, NY – January 13, 2020 – The Orchard and Brazilian YouTube Star/multimedia creator/music executive Konrad Dantas today announced they have entered into a new global services partnership for his entertainment company KondZilla. Under the agreement, The Orchard will handle worldwide digital distribution for new releases from KondZilla Records, the company’s record label, and work in collaboration with KondZilla to provide video strategy, drive engagement and manage content for Canal KondZilla, its hugely popular YouTube channel boasting over 50 million subscribers.
In addition to music distribution services, The Orchard will support KondZilla YouTube channels through creative audience development, advertising, rights management, reporting, marketing, optimization of video viewership and monetization. The partnership broadens The Orchard’s Multi-Channel Network and expands Kondzilla’s global vision and impact across platforms.
Erol Cichowski, Vice President, International of The Orchard said, “Konrad is a visionary creative executive and successful entrepreneur who is at the forefront of connecting fans with dynamic entertainment across a variety of platforms. We look forward to working with him and amplifying KondZilla’s positive message and passion for Brazilian culture.”
Konrad Dantas, Managing Partner, CEO of KondZilla said, “KondZilla represents the Baile Funk genre and favela lifestyle. With deep roots in the authentic Brazilian culture that has been increasingly growing, I am excited to see the impact our vibrant content has around the world. The Orchard is a comprehensive company with a global reach that coincides exactly with our moment of expansion. We look forward to fostering and expanding even more global partnerships and music video productions around the world.”
A screenwriter, director and ‘star-maker,’ Dantas founded the KondZilla YouTube channel in 2012 as a platform for the lesser-represented music scene of São Paulo. In the last seven years, the brand has skyrocketed with the emergence of KondZilla.com, a resource for videos, lifestyle, music and fashion, and KondZilla Records, a label with a roster of 60 artists. KondZilla capitalized on the growth of YouTube as fans’ primary method of streaming and brought São Paulo funk to the mainstream. The visionary behind one of the top 10 channels in the world, KondZilla is working to minimize profanity, empower female artists and focus on meaningful projects, evident in the ground breaking track performed by Kevinho and MC Kekel “O Bebê.” As the company continues to grow, their focus remains on giving a voice to the voiceless and expanding representation.
