New VEVA Collect Platform Helps Musicians Store, Share And Protect Their Work

Published

on

Professional musicians – even those just launching their careers and trying to make a name for themselves – must make sure a proper and safe record is kept of anything they write, record or contribute to.

 

After all, credits are valuable and careful documentation can mean the difference between getting paid and getting snubbed.

 

Enter VEVA Collect (www.vevacollect.com), a new platform from VEVA Sound that provides a way for those precious credits to be collected and stored. In addition, VEVA Collect allows musicians to safely share unreleased work with collaborators by providing storage for such files as sound demos and mixed-and-mastered projects.

 

“Professional musicians essentially are entrepreneurs, running a business even as they write songs, record music or perform in public,” says Deborah Fairchild, president of Nashville-based VEVA Sound (www.vevasound.com), which verifies and archives projects for clients in the music industry.

 

“Yes, they make music for the love of doing it, but they also need to protect what they produce. No platform helps them do their job better than VEVA Collect.”

 

Songwriters, producers, engineers, and publishers who use VEVA Collect are able to:

  • Ensure all of their credits are accurate.
  • Keep their files safe.
  • Collaborate in new ways.
  • Share with whom they want – but only when they want.
  • Build tracks and collaborate with users all over the world.
  • Limit access to specific collaborators – and only when they need it.

 

What those in the industry are saying

 

Finally, VEVA Collect has made it easier and more logical to gather all the information you need for an album, while you are doing it! And you do it in real time, while you are doing it, or thinking about it. Even if you want to make a note to do something later you have it. Everything in one place. Wake up at night with an idea, your phone can send the idea right then.

VEVA Collect is incredible. I’m mixing an album right now and am running the entire project through this platform. Everything it does to keep my projects organized is invaluable.

VEVA Collect helps me organize studio projects into a simple online access point for everyone involved in the job; a true workflow game changer!

With the number of income streams depending on correct attribution for correct payment, it’s more important now than ever before for artists, producers, and other rights holders to capture their credits at the source. Veva Collect makes this possible and is thus an invaluable tool for rights holders who want to make sure they are collecting the money that is owed to them from day one.

– Portia Sabin, President, Music Business Association

 

I use several different file sharing platforms, and they each provide a different service for my collaborative needs. VEVA helps me to integrate each of those services into one platform. It’s like a “one stop shop” for me, and it’s helping me to remain organized in a chaotic work environment. I know I will always be able to find exactly what I am looking for by going into my VEVA Collect workspace.

Shelly Fairchild, Artist

 

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been contacted by a record label for information on who is performing on a song.  Did this person sing backing vocals? Give me a list of performers. As a mixer, we don’t have access to this information.  Rarely is it noted in a session who the performers are. So I look forward to the day when asked who performed on a track, or where was it mastered, who played the drums, etc. …  that I can say, “Let’s check VEVA Collect.”

Did insurance agency owner, Stephen Ira Adams lie about Ghanaian scamming him?

Published

on

Stephen Ira Adams, who owns an insurance agency in central Louisiana, has gone viral since a feature on his unlikely relationship with a young Ghana was broadcast on CBS Mornings.

According to him, in 2016, he got a call that unexpectedly moved him. He heard a pain that he knew all too well. “Something in that young man’s voice, I felt like I could hear him through the phone that he was a broken person,” Adams told “CBS Mornings” lead national correspondent David Begnaud.

The man on the other end was at a call center in Ghana, Africa. He asked Adams to purchase a gift card.

“I said to him, ‘What you’re doing right now is a scam. You know, you are targeting elderly Americans and it’s not right,'” Adams said. “And I said, ‘When you get off, call me.'”

The man called him back. “He did not ever ask me for any money ever again. Nope, he did not. He asked me for mosquito nets, malaria drugs, educational things,” Adams said.

That man was Prince Anderson, who is from a small village in Ghana. As the oldest son in the family, he took on the duty of caring for his sick mother and supporting his younger brother through school after his father died.

It’s now been five years since Adams and Anderson first spoke and they still keep in touch via FaceTime.

“The kind of love he showed me, the things he sends me, the money, and the care and love with my mom and everything — the love he showed me, it’s overwhelming,” Anderson said.

Adams, a 41-year-old father of two boys, said he sees himself as a father figure to 25-year-old Anderson.

“I told him to quit that call center, and he never went back because he found out what it was about,” Adams said. “Some of the people working there, I found out, don’t even know what’s going on. His next job after he quit that call center, he was washing windows at the airport.”

But it seems there is a different account to the story that has gone viral, and Stephen Ira Adams may be on to something deceitful.

After we shared the video from CBSMornings on Instagram, an account under the name “Bossc_hairman” commented on the post denying Adams’ story. The account went ahead to post the conversations that ensued between Prince and Adams via social media in 2016.

According to the screenshots, Prince reached out to Adams after seeing details of him on the website of Northwestern State University. There was no phone call to scam Adams as he suggested in the interview.
