The Happy Saga!

The glorious saga of me charting and selling music is still going strong ๐Ÿ™‚ After weeks of charting on Amazon.com with my 2014 release “2 Guitars – The Classical Crossover Album” I’m back in the top 10 once again! As I’ve already said in previous blog posts it has been going in and out of the charts since its release in late 2014, being in the top 5 countless times, even hitting nr.1 ๐Ÿ™‚

It makes me VERY HAPPY to see how popular this idea is and I’m looking very much forward to releasing new material!

My manager and I were able to create a great buzz when I was doing Heavy Metal in the beginning of my career, we scratched our heads a bit since the music industry wasn’t really catching on to what we did, it didn’t really make much sense when you think about how much Metal bands normally struggle and how long it takes for these acts to break even when given the opportunity to release their material on a label! I successfully crossed over in late 2013 into classical music and have proven my worth continuously from my 1st single release to my full length album. I was dealing with a Major Label in 2016 working on something very exciting and classical related, but sadly became ill and lost over a year of my life to poor health. It therefore makes me extra happy to see that my release is still hanging in there for weeks at a time and that my latest video on YouTube passed 50k views yesterday!

It proves that we are doing something very right in an age where people complain about not selling records. Selling physical records was never an issue for me, or it hasn’t been to date. I feel very optimistic about the future when I see my numbers despite having a limited reach on my Facebook. That social media platform in particular used to be very important to me, and I think it is a great shame that you are being put in the position of “follower blackmail” as the social media giant keep on tightening its grip. It’s a shame for small, independent businesses and “free thinkers.”

It is good news however to see that my latest video could get good views so quickly without any mainstream media exposure; I’m grateful that Truth In Shredding gave me a mention and thank them for that, now I’m waiting to see if any of the big guys will actually catch on to this. The meme isn’t dying, at least not for now.

I’m looking forward to releasing new music! What I will release next will be original material, for the simple reason that I’ve been ill for a while and wanted to come back to music doing something that was a bit lighter, the second that I’m done with my 3rd album I will get back to classical!

Thanks again to those of you who pay for my work and keep an eye on what I’m doing! If you want to support my creative endeavours and hear new music as well, then please check out my Patreon ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks a million! โค

My Album Is Still Charting after over 2 weeks on the Amazon charts! :) Thanks!

On the 28th of January I was overjoyed when I saw that my classical album had hit the bestseller list once again, both in classical romantic and easy listening! It peaked on #2 from what I could see, but since the charts are updated every hour, it can easily be missed if it goes to #1, unless you stalk your own releases.

My album has continuously been charting since its release in December 2014, which makes me extremely happy! Usually a release will experience sales when you as an artist receive press exposure, play gigs and release new videos. So the fact that the album keeps on charting without any press buzz at the moment, gigs (I’ve been ill for a year) or new videos is crazy! In 2016 I also experienced that my music video for Paganini Cap. 24, went viral for the 2nd time, after a guitar site in Mexico posted it on their Facebook.

Whenever people come across my work and it is shared it is obvious that there is great interest for it! I’m looking forward to release new music. Right now I’m happy to be recording again! Thanks a lot to those who pay for my work and let other people know about what I do! As an independent artist I really appreciate all support! If you want to read about my Major Label experience in 2016 (the secret project) + my health (why I’ve been “gone”) you can read about that on my website right here:ย Commandermusic

Thanks again to those who support what I do! Make sure that you check out my Amazon bestseller books and previous releases on my website. Everything can be found there. โค
