some good news lately

It's a messy business promoting music, but sometimes things start lining up a bit in your favor. This last week has brought me a lot of good news.

but that's not all. American Tracks Music Awards does seem to offer some good opportunities for exposure, but we also have 2 nominations in the older and more legit International Songwriting Competition (ISC).

And there are quite a few more submissions moving through the process with other organizations. Different songs seem to resonate with different folks, which is fine by me. So far:

  1. American Tracks Music Awards - December 2017 - Best Independent Artist (selection: Go My Way)
  2. American Tracks Music Awards - December 2017 - Best American Song (selection: Someday)
  3. International Songwriting Competition - 2017 Unpublished (selection: Follow the Light)
  4. International Songwriting Competition - 2017 Unsigned (selection: Seeing Stars)

This should turn out to be a great year for the music in and of my life. Thank you.

the new band website

I'm always making adjustments, but for the most part the new band site is ready. Very excited.

Since this last album project was such a success, I have prioritized a complete overhaul of the band web site, the merchandise and sales processing, and the social media presence. Getting an album cover designed and produced was the first step and giving the band web site a full rewrite was step 2. Now I will proceed to printing the cds, and the rest of the merch design. I think we may press a a very small run of vinyl as well, mostly for promo but maybe those will sell all right. I think we are going to have to charge something like $30 or $35 per album, but I hear there are buyers primarily in Europe and on the east coast that are ok with paying prices like that for premium vinyl. The design is going to be pretty spectacular. More on that later.
