Daniel Lanois to help launch Uprise.fm, streaming site for live/rare recordings

TORONTO - Canadian producer Daniel Lanois is throwing his support behind the launch of a new streaming service.

Uprise.fm is expected to be available in Canada and the U.S. in 2015.

The new service is dedicated to rare, unique and live recordings owned by artists that aren't available on other streaming sites.

Lanois is the Hamilton-reared production guru behind well-known recordings from U2, Bob Dylan and Peter Gabriel.

He will serve as creative director and chief music curator of the service, which was founded by Montrealer Gary Silverman.

In a statement, Lanois said he sees Uprise.fm as a way for artists to get paid for their work while fans get access to otherwise unavailable material.

"It's time for a streaming service that is centred around and driven by the artist community directly," Lanois said. "Artists are prolific beyond a new recording every two years. They perform, tour, record and collaborate constantly. Uprise.fm will not only make these rare and unique recordings available, we will ensure that the artists are fairly compensated for their work."
