I've set up a musician page and am trying to stay active over on facebook. I've never been into promoting my music, but I do enjoy networking with other artists and this affords me a nice place to maintain some level of visibility. So far I've been posting all kinds of things - past as well as current. I figured I've been doing music long enough now; so it's okay to talk about it a little.
Wrap-up and Look-ahead
December 22, 2020
This was a productive musical year overall. As well as finishing new tracks for my forthcoming album, Artifacts Volume 2, I managed to release a CD with Flying Dark.
I appeared as a guest on the Phoen1x release, Immaterial Witness and completed a dormant collaboration with David Wallimann and Randy George, a song called 'The Golden Light' (which can be downloaded from my Giveaways page).
I received my first ever royalty payment from BMI for one of my songs, 'Reality' from my 2019 album, Vanity Rock. The song seems to have become somewhat of a hit on Spotify and other streaming services.
The closing of CD Baby as a vendor and distributor of physical product left me without any place online to sell my CDs. I've since tried to secure CD distribution for Vanity Rock, but have been unsuccessful so far, so I continue to sell it from my website.
Looking ahead to 2021, there are a handful of Flying Dark songs we intend to release as singles, and of course I expect to finish Artifacts Volume 2 as well. Aside from that I'll just have to see what comes my way.
