While the media was focused earlier this year on Rebecca Black`s now infamous song and YouTube video "Friday" also written and produced by ARK Music Factory "Alana was building an enthusiastic fan base of her own with "Butterflies," with a much stronger "like" ratio.
One of Alana`s more prominent fans showing love is celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who featured the video for "Butterflies" on his website Perez TV. The track also broke through into the Top 100 Download charts on iTunes in seven countries.
37 Records` roster currently includes one of San Diego`s top electronic-popbands White Apple Tree, Orange County, Calif.-based underground pop band The Gromble, Russian Songstress Nikki Forova, pop artist Kristen Trayer and Melody Zephyr and folk-pop singer Cathy-Anne McClintock.
The label is owned by Steven McClintock, a veteran singer, songwriter and music producer who won a BMI Award for a track in which he produced vocals for `80s teen pop singer Tiffany during her time of superstardom. McClintock also co-wrote "Synchronize" with Grammy-nominated lyricist Pamela Oland.
