My Spotify results for 2021. Slight bump up and no complaints from me. But what’s weird is, “Strange Weather” was the most-played and that came out in 2003! Whatever works!!

As of today, I am now a member of the International Singer-Songwriter Assocation. No I can’t sing but I write songs 🙂 And there’s a category for instrumental artists so there you go! My name should be on their website shortly.
MOOD SWINGS came in at #4 for Album Of The Year in Denmark!
“Force Quit” debuts at #3 in Australia!
It’s officially official! Got my membership card in the mail.
As of June 27, 2022 I am now an artist endorser for Ampturco cables!
Updated flyer with endorsers
Thanks to all for making me #1 in this category!!
New non-album single "Pieces Of Light" out now!
Totally unexpected! "Pieces Of Light" debuted at #9 in Australia!
Jeff Rickett sent me this cool shirt promoting his radio show!
My shiny award and me :)
Slight downturn from last year but still damn good!!
Which video was the most viewed for 2022?
Out of 1867 artists, I came in at 362 for 2022! Germany loves me!!
My single "Pieces Of Light" was nominated, didn't advance to the finals. But still a win for me!
