What a year it has been, so far.
This past year has been fun, Its nice that our distributor, Gracie Productions, has come out swinging for the fences in getting the songs heard. I believe we are in rotation at 40 radio stations in Europe, Australia & China, a lot of them internet radio stations, but then after looking it up, I find that hundreds of millions tune in to internet radio. Wow!!! This one provider services 6000 office buildings with piped music. Another services 3000. Since its release 6 weeks ago, 2000 copies of ‘Without You’ have been downloaded. With the peak of our sales promo expected the beginning of August and to run for a fortnight or so, I think my goal of 5000 songs being sold will be surpassed. So, considering that we started with no songs recorded and no contract on Jan 2015, the progress has been refreshing.
For the past month, Tony and I have been rehearsing once a week with a drummer named Vera Herten, from Deutschland. As a group, we’re starting to get tight and Tony’s starting to produce some groovin’ base lines just as we begin 2-a-weeks(rehearsals). Something that has been up in the air for a while though, has been whether or not I would assume lead singing duties. We’ve never had a lead singer but have always slated for one for when the time came. Two years later I’m still singing, and I’m on the tracks now, so that’s sort of a point of no return right there. However, we will be adding a female guitarist who can share lead vocals with me along with backing vocals. I’m finding it a rare breed, but eventually as we get more known and better musically, she’ll make herself known to us. The rule is…everyone sings in the band. Singing is at the root of music and is gods instrument All great bands have great vocals.
