So the second single has been out a week. Have you heard it yet? You can hear it on any of your favourite platforms here
We had a little hiccup with the social media campaign this time as there has been a mix up with the Remixed version which is scheduled for release later in the month. The distributor of the remix identified the original song (which is very different) as theirs and blocked it on social media. Frustrating, but less so when I realised why it had happened, my friend and I are working to get it resolved asap. Initially it felt as if someone way bigger than me had simply walked into my front room, picked up the tele and said .. we're taking this, it's ours! Disconcerting to say the least!
It is all part of this journey. I'm new to releasing my work out into the world, and there are many things I don't know or understand about it! Figuring out and trying to get the various social media and streaming platform algorithms working for you is a tiresome business, some would even say futile, as most of the time they seem to work against you; but you do see some unsigned, independent artists have a win occasionally. Here are two I am particularly fond of who seem to be doing it well: George Moir & Lizzie Reid more power to them!
