“We’ve just inked a massive deal to put on huge concerts with the biggest names in the world on the largest stages in China,” declares broadcasting luminary Jesse Dylan, from his home in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Jesse Dylan, a multi-award-winning broadcaster, best-selling author, and globally recognized on-air personality, has now taken the helm as the Executive Chairman of HANGR3, a groundbreaking AI company currently revolutionizing the music industry.
During our conversation with Dylan, he delves into HANGR3’s far-reaching impact on a global scale, highlighting that the AI platform does much more than connect fans and artists. “We’re talking to celebrities in sports, media, entertainment, and music about using our platform, where we create chatbots to elevate the fan-artist experience,” he explains.
The vision is to empower artists like The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Mariah Carey, Khalid, Metro Boomin’, Bieber, Jonas Brothers, and more, by leveraging the platform’s capabilities to engage with the artists’ massive fan base and sell merchandise, tickets, and more.
“Take an artist like The Weeknd,” Dylan says. “He has 64 million followers on Instagram alone. He can’t possibly talk to them all, but guess what? His chatbot can, and it can also sell merchandise, tickets, and even lead through to live concerts in the Metaverse. That’s what we’ve created.”
Reflecting on his long-standing association with talent and artists, Dylan shares his journey from the early days of traditional media to the inception of a tech company two decades ago. “I’ve always had connectivity to talent and artists, and I’ve always been a great connector with people in media, entertainment, and technology. So I got together with some really smart people and created one of the world’s first digital content management systems.”
