Courtenay hip hop artist draws global audience

Young Cap show now on pay per view

Whether it’s attracting thousands of fans through social media, performing live in Canadian cities, or getting songs out to a global audience through pay-per-view performances, Young Cap (a.k.a. Corey Ackland St. Pierre) is demonstrating his ability to connect with fans well beyond the Comox Valley.

As he grows in popularity, he’s happy to share the spotlight with local Island businesses which have been supporting his music.  Already commanding an impressive following on Facebook (YoungCap410) and Twitter (@youngcap420) the hip hop artist, ranked #1 on Reverbnation for the Comox Valley, is set to draw an even wider audience through pay-per-view  https://www.reverbnation.com/youngcap

The show is available until Dec 30. Subscriptions for the show can be purchased online for $10 at http://rosnermanagement.com/ppvvancouvernew.htm

Why pay-per-view? The music industry has gone through tremendous upheavals in recent years, and pay-per-view performances are just one of the many ways musicians can use to test new markets before launching a tour there. Additionally, the pay-per-view model has attracted sponsors for the Courtenay musician, and that helps to offset the cost of production. Erndor Auto Body in Nanaimo is among the companies sponsoring Young Cap in this venture and Simatech in Courtenay sells Young Cap merchandise. As Young Cap’s name becomes better known, so does his ability to redirect positive attention back to the people and places supporting him at home.

In addition to the pay-per-view show filmed in Vancouver, he will be featured on Shaw TV 2016. He just released his album “Proof of Change” through worldwide digital distribution.

Young Cap is managed by Rosner Management Services. The collective fan base of the indie artists under this management team is now well over 100,000 strong. Collaborating with other musicians to test new markets around the world allows Young Cap the opportunity to leverage this large fan base. They can explore markets that would otherwise be challenging for Island musicians to break into alone.
