I just released an album (!!!) :-)
on: August 18, 2018, 16:31:52
Hello kitchen,

Two years ago I made an album with a bunch of covers and the first couple of songs of my own, as a gift for friends and family. I burned the CDs myself and the number of copies was only a few dozen.
Now I officially licensed those covers and released the album online. It's called STOLEN GOODS AND HOME-MADE ODDITIES.

If anybody is interested in these early works of mine, has a subscription to one of the services and would like to generate a few streams for me, that would make me happy... ;D

My current favourite track from the album it is DER TRAUM VOM FLIEGEN, by the way. :-)

Cheers,
Mark

What a lovely thought @Mark Luto !!!
A CD for friends and loved ones.  And only a couple of dozen copies.??? You must have left a ‘few’ waiting and not getting one. Before I edited it read: ‘not getting any’.  Which may or may not be a crude expression in alpine  Sprach or in English anyway.
If you don’t mind i’d do this exercise when i’m not traveling.
Be right back after the break.......
But I love the idea before hand! It didn’t go unnoticed!
Kind regards, Gus

Congratulations @Mark Luto , to release it on so many channels must have taken much effort. I am impressed by your tenacity and know-how!

I have a Spotify account, so will be sure to look you up!

I think that your physical CD idea was great too. I have been thinking I should do that for a few songs of mine that are special to me and that I would like a few close people to keep.

Very well done!  ::thumb::
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

Thank you very much @LePlongeur and @MichaelA ! :)

to release it on so many channels must have taken much effort. I am impressed by your tenacity and know-how!

Well, actually I left all the publishing work to an aggregator. I've done the same thing with my couple of singles before. The more complicated part was to get the rights for the cover versions. But I learned there are good online services for this as well. It all costs a little money, of course. And I'm pretty sure I won't get the amount back from the sales and streams... ;D

If you‘d like to know more about how I did it, don‘t hesitate to ask @MichaelA .

Cheers,
Mark

You know @Mark Luto , only my sis and my mom follow me on that channel.. But if everybody supports you (like we do as a fam) I'm sure there'll be listeners that'll stick with your brilliant work..  ;)

Hey @Mark Luto - I almost missed this!! Congrats to you! I've followed you and saved the tracks on Spotify and will be listening.. I've just had a listen to Im Scheckenhaus - it was the first song I heard you sing and I remember listening that first time - I was completely blown away.. It's so lovely and so beautifully sung - I gotta say I love listening to you sing in German...


I will definitely be giving this many streams...
