JetBlue’s Next Live From T5 Concert “Promises” to Be One to Watch With a Special Performance by Ryn Weaver
NEW YORK, NY — (Marketwired) — 01/20/15 — JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU), New York’s Hometown Airline™, today announces its next Live From T5 concert. Singer/songwriter Ryn Weaver will perform her special blend of ‘fairy pop’ at an exclusive concert on Monday, Feb. 2, 2015 at 6 p.m. at JetBlue’s home terminal — T5 — at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York.
JetBlue’s Live From T5 concert series is an award-winning platform featuring surprise and delight concerts by emerging artists as well as top recording acts. The series features pop-up performances, held post-security, exclusively for ticketed customers and lucky contest winners.
Recently named one of Time’s “15 Musical Artists to Watch in 2015” and Huffington Post’s “25 Artists You Need To Start Listening To In 2015,” Ryn Weaver rose to prominence after her debut single “OctaHate,” streamed more than 4 million times on Spotify, was posted online in June 2014. Her debut EP “Promises,” co-produced by Benny Blanco and Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos, is out now on Friends Keep Secrets/Interscope.
“Ryn Weaver, much like JetBlue, truly exhibits an independent spirit and is the type of artist we like to feature on this unique stage,” said Jessica Wolff, brand manager, JetBlue Airways. “Live From T5 serves as a very unique platform for emerging artists. Many artists have performed in T5 as they were en route to mainstream success. We are excited to offer an exclusive sneak peak of this artist to watch and her new EP.”
For this concert, JetBlue has partnered with Universal Music to bring some of Ryn Weaver’s biggest fans to T5 for special access to this show. These devoted fans will also receive a special invitation to personally meet Ryn Weaver immediately following the performance.
