(SAN DIEGO) – June 5, 2008 – Modlife.com announced today that renowned surfer and emerging artist, Timmy Curran, has launched a new interactive Modlife.com website where he will create and distribute his digital media in an atmosphere that allows him to directly connect with fans of his surfing and music. Timmy Curran, best known for his leadership in modern progressive surfing, has been making a name for himself in the music industry after opening for popular acts such as the Foo Fighters and recently releasing his second album on Adeline Records, Word of Mouth.
“I am really excited to be a part of Modlife because of all it has to offer, and how easy it is to update, communicate, and be go live at any time,” states Curran. “I believe it is the future of an artist or band’s website, and am so happy to be on board. I am excited to broadcast live to fans around the world.”
“We’re very excited to welcome Timmy Curran to Modlife,” said Joe Brisbois, General Manager of Modlife. “This site will give his fans the chance to get closer than ever before to Timmy as his musical and surfing journeys take him, and his fans, around the world.”
The most significant characteristic of Curran’s new Modlife site is the direct, easy connectivity he will have with visiting fans. Using Modlife’s unique ModCam and ModBlast features, Curran will be able to interact in real time with his fans via live streaming video and instant text messages.
Users will also be able to create profiles, leave comments about each piece of content on the site, engage in live instant-text chats with each other as well as with Timmy, and have access to pre-sale tickets to his shows, participate in exclusive pricing offers, meet-n-greets with the musician and athlete and more.
An essential part of the Modlife Platform that separates it from other content-driven websites is the numerous tools that will enable Curran to easily create and communicate his digital media directly to his fans in one place without needing third party sites or software. ModCam is a live streaming video tool that enables Timmy to talk directly with fans, play private acoustic shows for them, give them exclusive behind-the-scenes access to surf competitions, and much more. Modblast is a live instant-text chat area where fans can chat directly with Timmy as well as each other. ModCams occur as both scheduled events and spontaneous transmissions thus insuring fans an easy way to plan around future broadcasts while at the same give them the chance to be surprised by Curran appearing unannounced.
Timmy Curran’s website on Modlife.com will be the exclusive destination on the web where both the curious and the dedicated fan will find a comprehensive inventory of everything Timmy Curran from traditional digital media such as music, ticket sales, video blogs and music videos to ultra-exclusive content and a direct connection to Timmy.
Visitors have the option of three levels of membership including free, registered and paid. With each level of membership comes an exponential increase in access to Timmy and other fans.
Surfline Premium members will have free premium access to Timmy Curran’s Modlife site for the entire month of August with unlimited access to all of his surf and music media. Modlife is also offering registered users the chance to enter daily for a chance to win one of Timmy’s pro-model surfboards from Channel Island that he personally used on all his surf adventures this past year.
