Last month saw my single ‘Rambling Man’ released online and take to the airwaves. The release is now available to download from iTunes and Amazon and stream on Apple Music and Spotify. So take your pick of preferred digital distributors, you’ve got no excuse not to give it a gander! For those who don’t know, it can be quite a long-winded process getting your release out there (although light years ahead of the old days) after the final mix there’s then mastering, then when you’ve uploaded it to Tunecore (an online company who will release your music on all the major online streaming serves) It can take several weeks of checking back to see if it’s up there and hoping it doesn’t fall foul to iTunes random review process which can add another couple of weeks to the wait! But now that it’s finally out there I couldn’t be happier.
I’ve also been a busy boy contacting the major Blues radio shows and have had some great feed back. So far the tracks made its debut on Soul of the Blues with Jeremy Rees on Radio Cardiff. A show that has listeners all over the world, not forgetting it’s following online. The single has also enjoyed airtime on the Blues Show with Gary Grainger on Bishop FM, who has recently picked up the award for Independent Blues Broadcaster of the Year from the British Blues Awards, so he must know what he’s on about! Other shows I’ve been lucky enough to have airplay on include: Blues Brunch on NCB Radio, Midnight Special Blues Radio, The Blues Hour on Severn FM, The Blues Show with Andy Mann and many others which I’ve probably lost track of in my rammed inbox! But don’t just take their word for it have a listen below for yourselves!
Other than that I’ve been playing a gig or two, and getting my set list of songs together in preparation for when I cross the big pond to the states for my tour at the end of June. It’s just under a month away and it still hasn’t quite sunk in yet, and I don’t think it will till I’m on the plane! So the next time you’ll hear from me I’ll be living it up in New Orleans, the first stop on the trip, jealous much?
