How Jeremy Zucker used data and Canvas to engage with fans on his tour
Using Spotify for Artists
Releasing a new single after a successful debut EP, Jeremy Zucker turned to Spotify to keep track of his music: "Spotify for Artists is such an amazing tool for artists and is putting so much into the hands of artists and their teams."
Data & Insights
Whether you’re a bigger artist or just developing, having a better understanding of your audience and trends around your music, has really helped me to find my fans and market better to them.
With my single ‘comethru’, I was able to use Spotify for Artists features to engage on a much more personal level with my fans. On my last tour in Europe we filmed fans from every city and incorporated it into my Canvases which got an incredible response.
And for a busy artist, Jeremy uses Spotify for Artists on the go, too: "There’s this rewarding feeling being able to go on my phone at any point and see my music reaching people."
