Here's press releasey thing for IronBark.I suppose I should try and get people to review it. Er. Do you want to review it?
Over the last 18 months I passed a major hurdle in my music career without really recognising it.
I have now released two solo albums and built a following of a few hundred – Nowhere near enough to earn a living from my music. I'll be teaching for a while yet.
Nevertheless I have reached the first step towards that goal: people I don't know are buying my music.
Over at http://www.tomslatter.co.uk people are buying Ironbark and a lot of them are even paying above the asking price.
I am amazed and humbled, genuinely that people like these absurd self indulgent noodlings of mine. I'm over the first hurdle, I can see the goal I have proved the concept.
This pleases me.
