Live from the Artists Den: Shawn MendesOn July 26th, 2018 a crowd of music industry insiders, influencers, and a select group of fans gathered at 99 Scott, a raw industrial space in Brooklyn with singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes, to headline Rolling Stone's relaunch celebration presented by YouTube Music. Mendes, who has scored seven consecutive Platinum or Multi-Platinum singles (soon to be eight with “In My Blood”), performed live and participated in a chat with Rolling Stone staff writer Brittany Spanos. The concert was filmed for the next season of Live from the Artists Den as part of Rolling Stone’s first live event under their relaunch initiative.
Artists BioShawn Mendes has experienced a meteoric rise to stardom that is only possible in the age of social media. The 19-year-old singer-songwriter has gone from posting videos of himself performing covers on the now defunct social media platform, Vine, to headlining his fourth tour with a freshly released third album, showcasing the speed of his musical maturity to the world. Mendes has received several awards during his blossoming career, including 3 Juno Awards, 8 MTV Europe Music Awards, a People's Choice Award and won Songwriter of the Year at the SOCAN 2018 Awards.
Venue Bio99 Scott is a former window factory discretely tucked between the intersection of East Williamsburg and Bushwick in Brooklyn, NY. The former site of the controversial pop-up club, “the Brooklyn Mirage,” 99 Scott was taken over by co-owners Molly McIver and Wells Stellberger, whose background in art and fashion inspired the space’s new mission of creating “hybrid events.” These events, which combine art, fashion, food, and music, have been the bedrock of 99 Scott’s programming since it reopened in 2016.
