I blog a little, tweet some, have profiles on face/space and videos on YouTube, have a handful of electronic press kits, am on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, eMusic, Nimbit,CD Baby and at least a dozen other music distribution sites. But out of all of the stuff going on, there’s this one sometimes overlooked music service that has surprised me. According to last month’s report from my Number One Music account, my profile has received 931,166 plays since it opened. That just blows my mind.
But I can really use your help. I am looking to record some new material, and there are a couple of things you can do to assist. First, please visit my profile (http://www.numberonemusic.com/billchampitto) and listen to a few of my songs. If I can achieve One Million plays I can probably leverage that milestone to help me record some new material. The numbers are important to people considering to promote my music, hire the band, or support my project.
If you find something you like on my profile, there are two other simple things you can do that would also help. Visit me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bill-Champitto-the-band/271945160480) and/or YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/user/BillCBos) and help my numbers there by liking my music.
And the really big thing you can do is purchase a download of one or more of my songs to help me raise the money I need to record my new material with my band. Going to my website at http://billchampitto.com/downloads.html works best for me, but you can also get downloads from MANY online retailers including eMusic, iTunes, or Amazon MP3. Consider rating or ranking me there as well. Every little bit helps.
Thank you for supporting music and the musicians that go through what we do to make it. Your support makes a difference to each one of our lives. Be well.
