Reifer’s Puppeteer hits No. 3


Share post:

Local soul and soft rock artiste Debbie Reifer has reached No. 3 on the Global Music Rumble chart of BalconyTV, a worldwide online music show.
Debbie’s performance, which was released last week Thursday, was good enough to reach the upper tiers of the chart after fans from around the world guided her into the Top 10.
Reifer performed the new song Puppeteer on the show which is produced by local video production and social media marketing company, Nu Visual Media.
Voting ends Sunday and the songbird is urging fans to utilize their cyber powers and take to the web to vote her all the way to the No. 1 spot.
“Puppeteer is going to be my new release next year so I thought it would be great to introduce everyone to it and see what the preliminary response would be like.  
“[It] is really about being careful with people who seem to be nice but are really trying to turn you into a tool they can use for their own gain. People who only have their interest at heart and isolate you from people who love you. You come across people like that all the time in this industry.
“I am excited about the competition. It’s amazing to be competing with so many amazing artists from around the globe.”
Reifer is glad about the exposure she is getting from the local Balcony TV spot: “I’m not sure how they came to choose me but I’m glad for the opportunity.”
Reifer is “focusing on making new music, trying to complete a new EP and perhaps some travelling and performing outside of the country. I’m also blessed to be nominated for Best New Artist  at the Barbados Music Awards on January 12, where I will also be performing and at Honey Jazz on January 19.”
Balcony TV has amassed 10 000 performances from over 50 franchises in just as many cities around the world and Debbie Reifer from Barbados has championed the lone Caribbean franchise, BalconyTV Barbados, to the Top 10, beating out much bigger cities such as New York, Toronto, Paris, Tokyo and London.
After having started from humble beginnings, when three room-mates in Ireland shot the first episode in June some seven years ago, BalconyTV has grown to see the likes of international superstars Ed Sheeran, Jessie J, Matisyahu and The Script perform.
Artistes who have been featured on the local instalment of the show so far are Adaeze, Matt Cruz, Onika Best, Albert Olton, Lexi and Hungry Soul.
Co-founder of Nu Visual Media, Damien Pinder said, “Having been given the opportunity to assist artistes is a huge passion for us at the company and we will continue to use BalconyTV Barbados as the medium through which local talent will a vehicle to whet their appetites in an international arena.” (NS)
