The most important thing is for me to tell you
And now, without further ado…
I get more track plays (and royalties) from BandCamp than from all other music avenues combined. That’s why most of the play links will be from there.
“Wreakless” was the song you played the most in 2018. The alternative/Cranberries mix was followed closely by the Americana version. This song was inspired by Dolores O’Riordan and The Cranberries when I first heard their music, but was recorded for the first time early this year. Thanks for listening!
Your top choice for piano improvisations was “Jaydn (opus 2)”. This series of spontaneous instrumentals is (of course) dedicated to my wife.
Several of the “InterPlayful” series of piano improvisations also made the top ten. These included “Body Babbling” and “Gratitude”. This set of 30 spontaneous compositions was created in response to an InterPlay challenge resulting in a very intense month of recording!
Rounding out the BandCamp top-ten were instrumental tracks from “Interdependence Suite“
and “Elements Suite” (which was exclusively released here).
The “other” top plays
Dance This from last year’s release, “Dream This“, comes in at number 10 across all the (non-BandCamp) streaming platforms and at number 5 on BandCamp. I especially appreciate your support of this song since it features my wife on improv and refrain vocals.
The second is the very mellow “Angels Among Us (1)”. If you listen carefully, you’ll hear that the beat (or time signature) in this one is seven. As you know, 7 is a magical number.
Wayfaring Stranger continues to be the top played track on Spotify. According to their artist dashboard, it was played more than combined counts for other tracks through all streaming services. It’s from my live piano improv album, “Old Hymns for a New Age“.
