London, Canada – My Singing Monsters has joined musical forces with Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Kristian Bush of Sugarland to collaborate on a brand new character – the Shugabush!
Bush contributed vocals and mandolin for the monster, which was designed and animated by the talented artists at Big Blue Bubble. The collaboration began when Bush – who was introduced to the game by his 11 year old son – tweeted his affection for the game. Creator Dave Kerr responded, and the two eventually connected off-line to dream up a new fedora-wearing, mandolin-strumming character. The Shugabush will make his debut in the game on Monday, July 29.
“This whole experience has been a blast,” says Bush. “First of all, the music in My Singing Monsters is irresistible – that’s what drew me to the game. And since I love to dream big via social media, I’m so glad that Dave Kerr and his team at My Singing Monsters dreamed back. I’ve always wanted to let my inner monster out… and I think I’m finally about to impress my son.”
“Working with Kristian was an amazing experience! He was enthusiastic and upbeat throughout the process. I can’t wait for the public to see his groovy new monster.” says Dave. “Kristian’s sweet mandolin and unmistakable voice add great depth to the music in a way that only a true professional can.” As the monster’s in-game bio attests, the Shugabush is “is a true embodiment of the spirit of collaboration.” My Singing Monsters is excited to share this new content with its millions of players around the globe, and looking forward to developing even more in future updates.
