Music Icon Jimmy Chamberlin of Smashing Pumpkins

Chamberlin, one of the most respected and powerful musicians and record producers in music, not only founded one of world’s most successful bands, but has gone on to a productive career in the burgeoning Chicago technology scene as an investor and advisor, leading him to LiveOne Inc. – a leader in digital and streaming entertainment. Due in large part to Chamberlin’s contributions, the company has partnered with Yahoo, YouTube, Live Nation, AEG, Vans, and Budweiser, among others. At a recent Web Summit Centre Stage on the future of digital music, Chamberlin pointed to digital as the medium for artists to truly express themselves and create art that connects with their audience.

“Jimmy is a rare and extraordinary individual in the global music business,” shared Lorenz. “His artistic background and unique life story combines with his passion to make the world a better place for the rest of his days. His innovative approach to the next generation of live music, makes this partnership unlike anything else in our industry. We know Jimmy Chamberlin as an individual who, like AlliedPRA, delivers stellar results in every initiative he undertakes. We are committed to helping Jimmy quench his thirst to enhance literacy for youth and adults so they can realize their dreams.”

“AlliedPRA is a leader in their space. I look forward to advising the team on securing headlining entertainment for their clients, an impressive list of industry-leading brands.
