My best foot forward

I’ve been (seriously) making music for about 3 years now.  Along the way, I’ve uploaded tracks to BandCamp, Spotify, iTunes and Soundlcoud.  I’ve made countless Youtube videos, tweeted about my music and tried to promote myself via Instagram and Facebook.

I haven’t made much in terms of money, yet.  Some sales here and there, some Stream revenue now and then, but nothing major, or at least not profitable.

What I do have however are Statistics.  Loads of them.  Number of likes, shares, downloads, comments, listen or watch time average, subscribers, followers, re-tweets and everything else in between.

I haven’t made a full-proof, scientific analysis  of all these numbers, but, intuitively, out of the 30 some tracks I’ve put out there, one, in particular, seems to stand out.

 

“Egyptian Wedding” is an Electronic Rock track, with a Middle Eastern inspired drum beat.  It’s instrumental, but has enough melodic elements to catch the attention of listeners. At least, according to my stats.

I hope to bring more attention to it,  by writing this post, maybe help it makes it’s way into your ipod or iphone, who knows.   In any case, if you like it, you might also appreciate the “Best Of” album I put out, featuring this track and others, that all, have shown signs of movement, by topping my own personal statistics charts.

 

“Hey Brother”, my Latest Song Out On Soundcloud

I’m adding songs with a little bit of singing to my Soundcloud profile these days, because I’ve got this idea in my head that people would rather listen to that than instrumental music.

This one’s pretty simple, the whole lyrics are: “Hey Brother, you’re doing it on your own” repeated, looped and cut.

At first, the lyrics came out different, it was “Hey Mother, I’m doing it on my own” but I changed it because I didn’t want people to think I had “Mommy Issues” (Which I do, but I’m working on that, don’t worry) Now I know what you are thinking, you’re thinking: “You shouldn’t be worried about what people think” and you’d be right, except, I am worried (I’m working on that also, don’t fret)

I have no idea what style of music this is. I want to say Trip Hop? I’m not sure.  All I can tell you, is that it was made with an instrument called: The Korg Electribe Sampler.   I made a video a while back, using the same song structure and lyrics and it got liked a lot, if ever you are interested to see:
