CHRISTMAS single release day! And although I’m not taking it too seriously, I need to spread the word a bit to get the wider benefits a new release brings to Spotify listener count etc.
I did a fair bit of the work last night and all the graphics, images, links etc are already created. Now I just need opt spread ’em around and create spots, stories and all the other kinda things social media demands if something is gain any degree of traction.
You can stream/download/watch/listen via the platform or service of your choice here.
I mess with one of the new songs that’s in the pipeline and wonder if a key change improves things. Mmmm…maybe. I’ll see what Margaret thinks.
A few years ago I splashed out on a Fishman MIDI pickup (TriplePlay)for the guitar. While the pickup itself works well, the software didn’t really deliver so it turned out to be a bit of a disappointment for what I needed. There’s a major software update which, maybe when paired with my more up to date laptop, might address the issues and make it more useful. There’s lots to download, so I leave the machine churning away while I make some bang bang cauliflower for lunch.
I’m doing a livestream from the kitchen at the local restaurant later so spend some time setting things up and preparing then head out for a walk in the last of the daylight.
I have a nice walk up the lochsidelistening to a podcast as I go. When I get to the far side of Millarochy bay I do a couple of Facebook livestream updates – one to my profile and one to my page.
I’m back just in time to grab my stuff and go to do the livestream which goes well.
Back home I do some social media follow up then have a rest in front of the fire before making dinner. Beef in black bean sauce tonight.
On our last USA tour we watched a few episodes of a Ken Burns series on country music on PBS…we didn’t see the final three though…and Margaret’s spotted a couple of them are on the telly back to back tonight. We watch ’em then make it to bed before midnight!
