Our Music Showcase in Pictures
Last night was a big night for Idean Austin, as we hosted a Music Showcase, as part of our SXSW event’s programme. It was also the last day of SXSW Interactive 2015 and we went out with a bang!
As well as having the insanely talented Joshua Ledet headline the show and perform his new single, “Love Can Do”, we also had some other extremely talented artists perform, including: Aleem, Young Ejecta and Photay.
The event was rounded off by a set from DJ Swisha Sweet.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended and was part of such a fantastic night! Bring on SXSW 2016!
Joshua Ledet performs “Love Can Do” at Idean Austin
Last night we were honored to have Joshua Ledet perform at our Music Showcase event at Idean House, Austin, as part of our SXSW events programme.
As part of his performance he sang his new single “Love Can Do”, which blew the audience away. The song is planned for release this spring – we’ll share with you more information on this as we have it.
In a truly heartwarming moment, Joshua invited Idean’s Co-Founder and CEO, Risto Lähdesmäki to join him on stage and thanked him for all of his support.
If you couldn’t be at our Music Showcase event last night or you simply want to relive the moment, here is Joshua Ledet’s performance of “Love Can Do”.
