Published on December 15, 2016

NEW YORK, December 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Beat (Music) and Feast (Food) bring Jerrick's total number of verticals to eight, only two weeks after launch of the Vocal platform.

Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc., (OTCQB: JMDA) (the "Company" or "Jerrick"), a digital media and technology company, announced today the launch of two new verticals, Beat and Feast, to be added to their proprietary platform Vocal.

Vocal is a content distribution platform and publishing hub engineered for creation and discovery spanning verticals in health, sexuality, science fiction, the workplace, pop culture, and more. Aimed at connecting thoughtful and original articles with communities passionate about these topics, Vocal leverages the power of specific and dedicated audiences with a nascent content creation engine, and effective monetization.

Beat is a website dealing with all topics relating to music, while Feast encompasses every aspect of food; both will have Jerrick's signature combination of quality articles, videos and photographs. Vocal users are now able to contribute to both of these new communities.

"We're extremely gratified to see the reaction to the launch of Vocal - the number of contributors has far exceeded our initial expectations," said Rick Schwartz, Founder of Jerrick. "As promised, we're listening to what people want to discuss and music and food were at the top of their list. Our tech enables us to scale new verticals very quickly."

Eight verticals now run on Vocal, each of which are built upon a storied history in the media landscape:

  • Beat - From obscure instruments to memorable soundtracks to ever-shifting tastes, Beat is the guiding track to all things music.
  • Feast - Whether it's your favorite part of the day or fuel for your car, our relationship with food is a daily, complicated affair. Let the Feast begin.
  • OMNI - OMNI is the intersection of science, science fiction, technology, art, culture, design, and metaphysics.
  • Geeks -Geeks dives into the storied worlds of comic cons, video games, movies, comic books and TV.
  • Longevity - Longevity presents the new frontiers of health and wellness; everything a person needs to live a strong and healthy life.
  • Journal -We spend one third of our lives thinking about it, stressing about it, talking about it, and doing it. Journal is everything work-related.
  • Filthy - In the world of sexuality, Filthy has something for everyone. A vintage erotica vibe with a contemporary artistic perspective.
  • Potent - Potent explores the fastest growing industry in America: cannabis culture and marijuana lifestyle.
