(CBS11) – Ten years ago, Welsh singer/songwriter Duffy (born Amie Ann Duff in Gwynedd, Wales in 1984) hit the music scene with her debut album Rockferry. An attractive blond with a strong passionate voice, she has a neo blue-eyed soul, similar to that of the late Dusty Springfield. She appeared on a Welsh television talent show in 2003 and placed second. She continued to record songs while working two part-time jobs. As her work began to sore on the Welsh music charts, she became more in demand.
(CBS11) – If you grew up in the 80’s, you will know the band Berlin and that it has no know ties to the capital of Germany. It was a name that the band members thought sounded European and cool, especially with their new wave/synth-pop/post punk style of music. The band was formed in 1978 in Orange County CA with John Crawford (bass), David Dimond (guitar), Ric Olsen (guitar), Rod Learned (drums), and Terri Nunn (vocals) but was pared down to a trio in 1985.
(CBS11) – By young people’s standards, I am a little late to the dance on this topic but I will tell you, Sofi Tukker has a bright future in the pop music business. Formed in 2014, Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern met in Providence, Rhode Island while attending Brown University. Both had been solo artists but joined together and composed their first song, “Drinkee,” a big international hit and a 2017 Grammy nominated song.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
