Childrens Music

The rise in popularity of streaming music rather than purchasing it has had a significant impact on obscure artists (like me). I'm not a wealthy man, but to about 2012 I was doing alright and most important I was happily building a small but loyal following. Every year my albums sales increased. Streaming pulled the rug and the plug on many unknown artists. I still sell some albums but not much anymore. I won't spend the time or money to produce another cd. Redshirt Theory (I'm sorry I don't know his real name), I think it's Arron warned me about that many years ago. I didn't want to believe it.

If you want to get your musical ass kicked check his music out. I thought I had heard that he had passed away? I hope I'm wrong about that.

Redshirt Theory

Anyways. I was looking for a way to make some money in addition to my BLJ music. I decided to remaster and sell a collection of ten songs I wrote when my children were young. Well believe it or not it panned out. A company that distributes educational and children's music to Public Libraries across the country has been buying my CDs. I may even have to put in for a reorder! Can you believe it? It's not very hip, but hey at least I'm selling music. I could post a song or two if you like? My only worry is that if people find out I'm BLJ, they will pull the plug on it
Peace
Eric

I'm sorry I can't post these tunes lol They are just too silly for mp3u

It was encouraging to read of your success in getting your children's songs to an audience wanting them. Public Libraries? Very good to get that distribution on your behalf! Sometimes the backdoor (the less anticipated route to success) is the one that feels more satisfying because it was the unexpected path.

Upload a tune...don't have to make it public if you don't want to...just let us know it's on your page so we can hear what you're up to.

That's great Eric. Any success is a good one. Children's music is a big audience I'd imagine, I'd be interested in hearing them.

Thank you, my friends.
Here's a link to the album and a link to one of the songs.

Chickens, Beans & Children's Dreams

Peace

Who did the artwork, E? Sweet cover, great tunes. BLJ as a loving dad...nice image...hope the sales continue for you. Which one is your favourite track? How did your girls respond to their dad producing music for them?

I wasn't too sure about the axe coming out, glad the chicken got away...nice story-telling in there

Celebrating with you!
