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

Standard

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:Β 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. ❀

 

New Interview, Part II.

Here is the last part of my latest interview:Β Read here \m/

Take care & see you next month \m/ New Music coming soon!!!!!

Most In-Depth Interview Ever, PERIOD.

Standard

Hi there people πŸ™‚ Today I’m sharing an interview that I recently Β did with a metal blog πŸ™‚

If you are curious about my upbringing, my take on politics and my music you can checkΒ it out πŸ™‚

This is the first interview I’ve ever done regarding my blog!

I have to say that the last 2 interviews I’ve done were really fantastic.

Tom ServiceΒ proved that great journalism still exists as he knew everything about what I was doing, he did not mention the blog though but he certainly had a great overview and an impressive knowledge of music.

Then enters Mo from Metal Bulletin Zine over in Seattle USA who sent me the most personal questions I’ve received so far from any music journalist!

I’m guessing that these might be questions that those reading my blog would like to ask me.

If you want to read the most politically incorrect interview I’ve done so far you can read itΒ right HERE!!!!!

Here I Am, On BBC3!

Standard

πŸ˜€ Hey to all of my subscribers here on my blog! Today my interview over at the BBC was aired, listen to itΒ right here :):):):)

You can hear me shred variation 1 from Paganini’s Caprice 24 live, you’ll also hear me play something from my original heavy metal song “Thou.”

I’m particularly happy with how it turned out as I hadΒ a very long break Β from playing right before the interview, so it was good to hear that I delivered even though I felt, at the time, that my form wasn’t optimal :):):):) I guess I know how to play πŸ˜›

This is the first time I’ve performed anything live on National British Radio πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ Thanks a lot to BBC3 & Tom Service! I think this is really cool :):):):):)

Goodbye August, Hello September!

Standard

After months of secrecy I just wrapped up a mystery project that I’ve been totally consumed by these last months! Fingers crossed that it won’t remain eternally secret as I’ve really enjoyed it. By far the coolest thing I’ve done I think, at least in my opinion πŸ˜‰

I will now enjoy some well-deserved days off πŸ™‚

Here are some behind the scenes pic, from the month that was!
