so today Mark's the 1st anniversary of my brother's passing. I thought it was timely that I update my blog with a little news.
The album is well and truly released! All three launch shows were a great success and the reviews are trickling in .. when asked about this 3rd instalment my response is 'it's a slow burn'. My first single Contemplating Life is receiving good rotation on community radio but as yet hasn't really got a run on CMC here in Australia. t's increasingly hard to compete with the signed artists and especially in the Country Music genre because we only have ONE dedicated CM channel in Australia and around 80% of the content is non-Australian. This makes it real hard to get noticed.
I however, have never been a quitter! and I shall continue to pursue my dream of sharing my music with the world. That is achievable of course but takes considerable time and investment. So for me, it's about balancing my day job which pays my bills with my independent music career which doesn't pay the bills but brings me enormous pleasure. It's about learning how the media world operates and finding in roads, it's about reaching an audience and it's about resilience!
Track 4 Her Free Will, view the lyric video here from my Six String Heart album is a protest song about violence against women. I have donated this song to an organisation here in Australia to use as they wish in the hope of raising more awareness about this epidemic.
I have other plans with some of my other songs, including a second single release mid year. Stay tuned and feel free to drop me a comment or a message.
One huge and cost-free way you can help is to leave me an album review on itunes, you'll need to download it first however lol.
love, light & peace people
