Stream Noush Skaugen Twitter’s most followed unsigned act. With a massive and ever-increasing 1.2 million followers on Twitter (comedy legend Stephen Fry has 1.3m) classically trained London rocker Noush Skaugen has the sort of viral clout that most artists can only dream about. Noush’s instinctive use of social media – crowd-sourcing poster designs from fans, and tweeting pictures of last-minute changes to hand-written set lists seconds before going on stage – has made her the number one most followed unsigned artist on the explosively popular social network, and a real force to be reckoned with. This fact has not escaped the attention of Twitter bosses, who invited her to play a live-streamed showcase from their San Francisco HQ on Friday, March 12th– the performance was watched live by thousands of her online fans on http://noushskaugen.com/live Noush’s Twitter gig kicked off a series of dates prior to the May release of her new single Run Baby Run, including a performance at the showcase of influential London promoter Tony Moore (The Kashmir Klub, The Bedford, The Regal Room) at last week’s SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.
