In this episode of the Artispreneur Podcast we speak with the cofounders of ONEpublic, a NYC-based collective focused on the development and success of New York’s growing community of independent musicians.
Through interviews, events, and technology, OnePublic provides a platform that fosters opportunities for artists of all skill levels to connect, collaborate, and create. Our mission is to build a community which celebrates the journey of independent artists and provides the next generation of creators with fair and equal access to the resources they need to create.
Tyler Newton, CEO
Tyler Tremell Newton is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ONEpublic. From an early age Tyler was in the company of community activist Sonny Carson and Spike Lee. Having these interactions at such an early age laid the foundation for Tyler’s deep appreciation and love of New York. As he grew into a young adult he became very conscious of the artistic needs of youth and the role that music plays in the development of culture. This sparked a movement that would first come into fruition during the Spring of his sophomore year at St. John’s University. With the help of his friends he created ONEpublic, a collective of young entrepreneurs and creatives focused on creating a space for NYC’s indie artists to connect, collaborate, and create.
