I was browsing through this years’ Wrapped for Artists on Spotify. As usual, it was a depressing read, once again highlighting my obvious lack of self-promotion and releasing new music to keep the fans interested. Listening rates going steadily down. That sort of stuff.
One interesting thing came out of that ordeal, however. Some plays of my 2005 track Gravitons came from a relatively new playlist called Club Penguin Original Soundtrack. I investigated further and soon found out that apparently Gravitons was used in a hugely popular online game called Club Penguin, back in the mid-2000, and more recently in Club Penguin 3D (CP3D).
I think that is the third game my music has been licensed to so far, as I know of anyway. Maybe I should add ‘Game musician’ to my Linkedin Profile. ;)
Yay! Spotify has informed me that I now have 100 followers (actually it’s 101 when writing this).
This makes me happy, but I would lie if I would say it doesn’t matter how many followers I have. Of course it does. I would love to see some more zeroes there, like 1000 or 10000 followers. Not because I would make any more money on my music (I don’t and I wouldn’t), but because more people would actually listen to what I do.
As many small-time, non-touring musicians and producers like me know, getting followers and people to listen to your music is really hard and more of a chance happening, unless you want to spend more time promoting that producing. Sure I could do what many seem to do, pay some money to a clickfarm in India or China. I would get a higher number of “followers” but in the end it would all be fake. It’s just a trumped up value and not an actual representation of real people listening to and liking my music.
Anyway, if you are one of these real 101 persons following me on Spotify. THANK YOU! If you are not, here is the link. :)
Dear Fogelberg.com visitor, please click the link to follow me on Spotify.
Why? Well, please let me explain: First I would like to say thank you for visiting Fogelberg.com. It means a lot to me. Now I have a small favour to ask you. As you might know I have a new single coming out on Spotify Friday next week. The problem is my music isn’t really in their recommendation loop, and that means not a whole lot of people are going to hear it.
What I need for that to happen is simply more followers on Spotify.
So, if you like my music and have a Spotify account, I would be super happy if you go to my artist page on Spotify and click the Follow-button.
That’s it. Thank you in advance.
