As demonstrated in the past, I have shared my compositions and songs with friends and family.  When asked by a blogger (and now a good friend) in a comment on my blog if my songs were available on i-Tunes, I replied that I believed they are but have not checked.  I know this sounds strange and it is!  Of the number of things I have learned and accomplished over the decades, I have not learned how (or desired…..) to promote my own work.  That is one of the reasons why my daughter had to give me a big KICK to start this blog and get my songs out there.

It appears I need another big KICK!  I placed my songs on CD Baby as I am an independent songwriter/performer and I do not have the backing of a major label (Yet???!!).  Thank all of you for checking out this blog and for comments I truly feel are precious and thoughtful.  Many of you are encouraging and supportive and I very much appreciate it.  I want to help others understand the music environment and cut to the root of many systems or procedures we use that seem too mysterious or challenging to beginners.

I did check and I want to make sure you know that my songs (individually and as CD’s) are available on i-Tunes, and they can be found in streaming services like Pandora, Spotify, X-box and many other channels.   If plans go well I will also be releasing more songs this year and early 2016.  My daughter posted the i-Tunes links on the midimike blog recently, and I wanted to let you know if you are not familiar with CD Baby that the songs are available in other channels.  Deep down, maybe everyone wants to be a famous rock star, but I simply want to create original music, help others do the same and share them with people that are as passionate about life as I am.

    Thanks for the links, Mike! I really love “Get Out of Line” and have just purchased it for my iTunes. Reminds me much of one of my all-time favourite bands, Supertramp.

      Now you are making me blush!! But I am smiling at the same time. I have to admit I did not expect the comparison to Supertramp, that is very generous. A lot of people do not like the sound of their own voice (there are a bunch of reasons for this and maybe material for another post). I love to sing but I do not have a powerful, driving voice. But when playing my 12 string, I try to find the right range and dynamics to match the feeling and vibe of the song. From there I just try to make the words intelligible and from the heart, then let the song do the hard work. “Get Out of Line” is one of my favorites. It is always good to hear from you. I feel like writing another song!
