As you know, I independently released a new single -Heavy Ghost- in July. It's been an exciting time and there has been a lot of good feedback from you all! The song was featured on the New Music Friday playlist on Spotify, which helped it get over 5000 listens, and a few community radio shows have played it. This is a good start!
I'd love to spread the song as far as we can. CBC Radio 1 has featured the song on 'Big City, Small World' and I would love your help to get it played on Radio 2. Heck, maybe we can even help it get charting! Please tweet @CBCR2Drive to request on Radio 2 Drive, @Nanaaba to request on Radio 2, and finally you can tweet directly to the stations @CBCRadio3 and @CBCRadio2 to request Heavy Ghost. Feel free to tag me @therealkatburns and I will retweet. You can also email requests to your local programmer in your town. A complete list of hosts here: http://www.cbc.ca/programguide/personalities
I'd love to spread the song as far as we can. As you know, CBC Radio broadcasts in Canada and also world wide over satellite and internet radio. CBC Radio 1 has featured Heavy Ghost on 'Big City Small World' and I would love to get it played on Radio 2. Heck, maybe we can even help it get charting! Please tweet curator @MattRFisher at @CBCMusicSonica, directly to @CBCRadio3 and @CBCMusic to request Heavy Ghost. You can also tweet @CBCRadio2, @Nanaaba and @CBCR2Drive to request the song specifically on Radio 2. Feel free to tag me @therealkatburns and I will retweet.
Why does all this matter? Well the reality is that if no one hears the music, the shows are smaller, sales are less often, and opportunities are fewer. I consider my audience a very important part of the equation. I have no label - all my success comes from you - my fantastic supporters. Your are very much appreciated, each and everyone one of you.
Thank you all,
