Singapore, —July 17th ,2014— CME Pte. Ltd has released this important breaking news in the music industry. We are honored and excited to announce that Jordan Rudess—well known keyboardist of the band Dream Theater—will be an official endorser of CME musical instruments and has accepted the position of Chief Musical Officer.
CME launched the truly mobile midi keyboard—Xkey back in September 2013. The chic and ultra slim design, velocity sensitivity, Polyphonic Aftertouch, smart buttons and customized Xkey Plus app etc. features have won a lot of musicians’ hearts and received a lot of praise. Musicians such as Jordan Rudess, Thomas Dolby, Geoff Downes, Empire of the Sun, Lady Antebellum, Bobby G. Summers, have all proudly added XKey to their musical worlds!
The success of the CME Xkey captured Jordan Rudess’ attention when he first tried the instrument. After years of communication between Jordan Rudess & the CME team, Jordan has become well aware of CME’s ability for innovation and their creative ideas for new products. CME welcomes Jordan, not only as a product endorser but also as CMO, a role that will allow him to be involved in new product planning and development.
Jordan said: “I am every excited to announce my new position as Chief Music Officer of CME. CME is a great group of people whose vision is to create cutting-edge musical instruments while using the latest developments in technology. I look forward to helping guide them into the future. Creating next generation instruments has been a passion of mine for a long time”
Rudess adds, “The Xkey is awesome. It’s incredibly thin and light and I can take it everywhere I go! It fits into my carry on bags when I’m on tour. I love that I can plug it into my iPad, or my iPhone directly. I’m very excited about this opportunity to work with CME！”
2014 will be a very important and bright year for CME. The collaboration of CME and Jordan Rudess will be something to keep your eyes on. We invite you to come along on CME’s next great adventure!
