This is just getting a little nutty.
A year ago today I was in Seattle with Greg Adams and Andrea Adams at Stephen Sherrard's DBAR Productions & MusicTECH mixing the CD. This was, from the beginning, a vanity project. I just wanted to see what I could do working with the likes of East Bay Soul and, hopefully, not embarrass myself. At DBar Andrea said, "This is radio. You could get this on radio." I was pleased but pensive.
Earlier this year "Dis 'Sup" made it on multiple charts, even making it to 36 on Billboard and amazingly hitting #1 for 17 weeks at The Moth FM, the UK station hosted by DrGlyn Reece. The folks at SmoothGrooves hosted by Richard Edwards were steady supporters. I interviewed with Kim Linzy at the UNLV jazz station.
In February we did a CD release concert with Q At Spaghettini... Thank you. Bucket list item #74... check.
In June Jason Gorov identified Thunder and Lightning as the second single... holy whatever... I was (like) freaked out that there was one single. Now let's do two. Really? Me?
This week - another face-palm moment. Dis 'Sup sneaks BACK onto the bottom of the charts. Now - I know that by many standards having a song at #96 on the Internet chart (Radiowave) is no great shakes; however, "Thunder" is still hanging in there after 10 weeks.
So... here we are. Two songs on the national charts at the same time. A one-time now-retired rock-star-wannabe who teaches accounting. I. Am. Dumbfounded.
