How was 2017, what went well?
I think all in all 2017 was GREAT, we hired a few new developers, redesigned our mobile web, which we will be pushing to production very soon, re-branded the company from Revohloo Studios, Inc. to Revohloo, Inc. in we had our disappointments!
Anything you’d do differently?
Definitely, I made the mistake of putting all of our eggs in one basket with regards to an investor who back out on us after several months, it was extremely disappointing! I’ll NEVER ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN EVER AGAIN, so that was a hard but necessary lesson to learn and at the end of the day a lesson I’m glad to have learned NOW!
Plans for 2018 and the future?
Huge plans right out the gate, starting with our Small OPO(online public offering) Via StartEngine. we’ll be able to offer shares in our Revohloo to the public, but not just accredited investors, BUT the other 95% of Americans who missed out on the Pre and Post Tech BOOM! We’re basically taking our company public and we are VERY EXCITED about it!

Revohloo, Inc headquarters is currently based in Los Vegas NV USA – tell us why it’s a great place to launch your Brand!?
Las Vegas is the Entertainment Capital of the World, so its actually perfect for Revohloo, we had a meeting with several major artists here, most notably TPAIN and his team at the Mirage. Plus Tony Hsieh of Zappos has made made a considerable investment building a thriving technology community, and we’re just a few hours from LA.
What do you enjoy about how you currently work and the type of work you do?
I probably most enjoy Creating our App & Developing our Business Model and GO TO Market Strategy

You have a great following in technology following on Twitter, is this part of how you do business (guessing yes) – how has it helped you?
Yes we have a considerable technology following and an even larger community of artists and industry executive, so in that respect Social Media specifically Twitter has been and remains to be very helpful with regards to meeting artists and their reps and then developing offline relationships.
How much time does it take to stay on top of your social media digital footprint? Where else are you active as well as Twitter?
Social media can be a friend, but a really needy friend that constantly requires your attention\ so we’ve partnered with 360WISE Media to carry a lot of the load and look after our online presence. Probably next would be IG and we post to our facebook account via Instagram. We are stepping up our social media on FB for 2018, we’ve partnered with Hibu who are Facebook partners, I actually attribute our Facebook page getting Verified to Hibu.
Technology is your core and music is your passion, who do you follow / like what they do?
My personal taste is very eclectic T-Pain, David Ellefson (of MEGADEATH), Missy Elliot, Chris Brown, Wyclef, Taylor, Drake, Nikki, Wayne, too many to mention!

What are your top tips to artist and rights holders trying to create value in the music industry?
I would tell artists STUDY YOUR CRAFT, it takes more than good cover art and social media launch a successful Music Career and Surround yourself with a management and production team that put you first, and to rights holders I would say Revohloo is committed to creating real value for artists, so get them on the platform ASAP and it will pay off, because being early adopters to the next NEW in Music Video Entertainment will pay off when we have Major Recording artists featured on Revohloo and Millions of people logon on for them they are going to discover some of YOU!
Not too many companies are convinced on the value of streaming service platforms, and having an online strategy – do you spend time articulating why there is value, or just focus on those that want to develop one? The narrative and consistent message we deliver about Revohlo is simple, Creating Value for Artists and Rightsholders
Tracy you’re the CEO of the Next Power Platform For Recording Artist and Rights Holders- who do you love to listen to?
Anything else to add / we should have asked you?
Probably and Definitely, (Laughing) but let’s save some for next time, Thank You!
