Hey everyone! It's been about 3 months since I've released my first full length album, Work In Progress. I can't believe it's been that long already! Every day I have someone different asking me about it. So I thought I'd give a quick update via the personal FB page.
I wasn't really sure what to expect when I put this out. It was just something I felt called to do so I finally did it. In the 3 months that it's been out, I've had stories on websites like Trackstarz. I've been able to talk about the album on radio with KIWA Radio. I've also had a handful of interviews and stories in papers like The N'West Iowa REVIEW, Sioux City Journal's Weekender, The Globe, Nobles County Review, and Northwestern College - Beacon.
The response to the music itself has been pretty cool! A.I. has over 15k plays on Spotify and over 13k on SoundCloud. Just that song! Overall the album has over 50k plays on JUST Spotify and my music has been added to over 50 playlists, some as big as 9,000 followers! And I know it's getting played other places like Apple Music, Amazon Music, Pandora, and Google Play. I've had tons of people tell me they like this song or that song or their kids learned the words to this song and try to rap along with the track. I've even had people that don't like hip-hop let me know they like the album! It's a pretty cool feeling!
To anyone who has listened to or shared the music, thank you! It means the world to me. If you haven't checked it out, I'll post some direct links below. I'm not sure where we're going from here but I do have some music video ideas in the works and some shows in the process of being planned including DAD & Friends In Arnolds Park this June. Hopefully more to come!
