Six months & counting

Six months & counting - that's how long now I've been at this project called Endless. Studio work began in June 2014 and finally wrapped in late September. After that came copyrights, mechanical licenses, graphics design & licensing, photography, packaging & manufacturing. Distribution followed to CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon and about 20 other online outlets.

The next major phase of launching Endless is promotion, starting with garnering some respectable press. In the last few weeks, the album has received wonderful reviews from critics like Bill Binkelman, Kathy Parsons and Michael Diamond. You can read their reviews here, on their websites and on the Endless album pages at CD Baby, iTunes & Amazon.

Now it's up to Ed & Stacey Bonk at LAZZ Promotions to do the hard work of promoting the album to radio. I've personally mailed out over 200 CDs to programmers in the last several weeks with my 1-sheet of album info, reviews and artist bio. Between now and March 2015, LAZZ will be making multiple contacts with radio stations, programs & in-flight music services. To date, several dozen stations & programs have added the album to their playlists. It's a good start.

The first radio charts of 2015 will be released by mid-January - they should give a clue as to whether Endless is going to fly. As for me, I'm hoping, praying & working hard to do right by this little album that I've put my heart & soul into.
