2016 Wrap Up!
While my entire Facebook feed has informed me that 2016 was, in fact, the worst year EVER, I hope I look back on it as the beginning of something great. I launched my music out into the world this year. Not all of the world heard it, but I did it. I've sold songs on iTunes. I've streamed music that people actually listen to on a regular basis. That's really awesome!
It can be easy to look at people successful in the music industry and think that you haven't accomplished anything at all. Ariana Grande is 23 and she's been nominated for 4 Grammy Awards. I just turned 29 and finally have 7 songs up on iTunes. It's not a good comparison.
But the most important comparison is the one to myself. And I have 7 songs released from my first album this year, as compared to 0 songs released from the dream album in my head last year. That feels like a huge accomplishment and I'm really proud of myself. I'm also very excited to have that number increase next year!
In addition to more music, which is always goal #1, this year I hope to have more content up for you here. I have some videos of me singing that I want to get up. I hope to turn this into a weekly blog where I can tell you about my process, my music education, and what led me to music in the first place. I will probably do some live performances this year too, so keep your eyes peeled for dates. However, My first goal for 2017 will be the 3rd part of my album release. But that may take a while. I want to put 5 songs out this time. We'll see if I can make that happen.
One final note here, "Scorth the Earth" is still up on Spotify ;)
