What is Lions Share?

LIONS SHARE is a DAO, creative community, and music podcast featuring the best emerging artists from Asia and the Asian diaspora.

Happy (almost) Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month!

In May, Asian creative community and podcast LIONS SHARE and Warner Music Group’s Asian employee resource group APIECE are doing something extra special to highlight unsigned Asian artists on rise!

We’ve partnered up with Topsify, WMG’s playlist brand and streaming label with over 3M followers, to place Asian artists on some of their most popular playlists and co-curate a special new one just for our community.

All submissions will be reviewed and 60 songs will be handpicked for playlisting by our team of A&Rs including Sweater Beats (acclaimed artist and Grammy Award winning producer), David Stouck (VP of A&R for WMG Asia), and Allyson Toy (DJ and LIONS SHARE co-founder). The playlists will be open to the public and circulated to Warner’s global A&R teams and on the hunt for new talent!

Don’t wait to get your music heard! Submissions close on Sunday, April 25th, so follow LIONS SHARE on Instagram and fill out the form below to share and amplify your music.

For questions or more information on our A&Rs, APIECE, LIONS SHARE, or Topsify, please see our FAQ.
