Last month has been truly amazing in every way. First and foremost with the birth of my little baby girl, who decided to come to us one month earlier than expected on new years day. What a way to start the year. Thanks to the generous Swedish parental leave (and a kind employer) I have been able to be at home six weeks and really spend some quality time with my new family.
And not only did I have a lot of time for my kid, I also got some time to focus on my music. Resulting in me both finish the recording of my new EP + the acoustic EP I’m working on with Producedbytobi. And then I started using some of the fantastic new technology which allows artist to actually get a fair pay for their hard work and also started writing a separate blog series about that. If someone’s interested check it out here.
And today was a really exciting day since my co-producer and sound engineer Ruben from Studio Ljudriket sent me the final masters of the new EP. And I couldn’t be happier. This is by far the best work I have done and it’s a lot thanks to Ruben challenging me in the studio and coming with great ideas, or as I like to say “Ruben got feeling”.
I also finished the art work for the EP and wrote a press release so next month I will be spending promoting it to radio and blogs and 9th of March is the official release on Spotify, BandCamp, iTunes and all the other major platforms.
BUT already the 2nd of March I will pre-release it on the three new platforms, Steemit, Channels.cc and Musicoin. In this way I want people to discover these new way of consuming music and other kind of content through outlets that actually gives the artist a fair share of the revenue. So if you don’t want to miss the pre-release, make sure to subscribe to my Messenger-channel and also check out my profiles on the different platforms, I already have most of my older work on there, just click the links above.
I will put some videos and other fun content this month leading up to the release so stay tuned and #KEEPOUTOFTHEMAINSTREAM
