29 Mar 3 Shots of Tequila sign exclusive deal with Spotify in trailblazing UK podcast deal
3 Shots Of Tequila – The podcasting trio of Keith Dube, Tazer Black and Marvin Abbey have signed an exclusive deal alongside Spotify.
Having launched their podcast, a light-hearted, humorous take on current affairs, back in April 22 2016, the trio have gone on to release 137 episodes, all of which are available to exclusively listen to on Spotify. The 3 Shots of Tequila launches every Friday and since its inception, the group have never missed a release date, while also selling out 20 live-shows across the UK.
James Cator, Spotify’s Head of Podcast Partnerships for EMEA, said this of the partnership: “The 3 Shots guys are some of the funniest and most authentic voices around and I’m so excited to be taking this podcast to the next level with them. Just sitting in meetings with Keith, Marvin and Tazer has been hilarious so I can’t wait to see where they take the show.”
The deal is the first of its kind for the UK podcasting scene, with 3 Shots of Tequila leading the recent podcast boom that’s swept the UK, launching over three years ago and expanding their brand ever since.
Prior to their link up with Spotify, the podcast averages around 30,000-40,000 per episode each week and has a huge viral presence on Twitter, with the #3ShotsOfTequila hashtag often trending, while also establishing themselves on YouTube too.
Speaking on the deal, Keith said: “We’ve been working tirelessly for the last few months to make this happen & we can’t be happier about joining the Spotify family,” with Marv adding: “It’s a huge win for us to sign with Spotify. When we started out, studios just weren’t set up for recording podcasts. We were just three guys, crowded around a microphone having a laugh. Now, with Spotify’s support, we can take 3 Shots to the next level, develop our ideas and reach a huge audience.”
You can listen to the podcast for free without advertisements exclusively on Spotify from this point onwards. Listen to the latest episode below:
