I just submitted or album “Blind Spot” to Making a Scene and the Independent Blues Awards. We are very excited about this particular award because Richard L’Hommedieu and the folks at Making a Scene do such an incredible job getting new artists some real exposure. We are seeing a huge spike in CD Sales on CD Baby and also a spike on Spotify for monthly listeners. This has never happened to Phil Berkowitz and I before. We have always flown under the radar.
Out of all the music platforms for Indie blues artists, this is really the one. It’s a tireless 24/7 effort with their postings, their newsletters and their “Live at The Midnight Circus” podcasts.
THANK YOU TO ALL OUR STAFF AND WRITERS!
THANK YOU MOST OF ALL TO OUR READERS!
