GROUNDBREAKING LYRIC-CENTRIC TECHNOLOGY OFFERS CUSTOMERS AN INNOVATIVE WAY TO INTERACT WITH THEIR FAVORITE MUSICIANS
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 9, 2016) — Multi-platinum entertainer Dierks Bentley introduces his very own custom keyboard app for Apple and Android devices. The keyboard, powered by LyricLink, includes more than 100+ emojis using a brand-new technology that turns users’ thoughts into lyrics from Bentley's most iconic songs, including his current “game-changing” (Taste Of Country) Top 5 single “Different for Girls” with descriptors and images including collaborator and friend Elle King. It’s incredibly simple, and because it is a keyboard, it can be used to text, Tweet, post, and more. Watch the YouTube Demo of Dierks Bentley Lyric Keyboard by clicking HERE.
“I’m always looking for different ways for fans to be involved in my music,” shares Bentley. “I think the fans will pick up on a lot of the lyrics, familiar characters and friends we worked in!”
Allan Zhang and Sam Mendelson of Echelon Creative Inc, say, “It’s a privilege to get to work with Dierks and the team. His songs are so catchy and poetic that it makes our LyricLink technology work even better.” Below are two examples of the app in action to compliment the gif available in the press packet.
I love you = Without you I’d be nothing
Want to go dancing? = Want to have a Mardi Gras in the clouds?
The app is available for download from the App Store now with Google
Play arriving this weekend. Direct links can be found here. It is currently $1.99.
