Had my first album released on Spotify today via Amuse

By the way, this is exactly the type of announcement that would suit the proposed Facebook group ( see separate post) !

Many thanks for the responses. I have created (the first version) of the playlist "UK Songwriting Forum by Kevin ISM" that you can find here

https://open.spotify.com/user/kegraham61/playlist/1WQq8V33cx9hxCxzrYUV6D

Please download and play often!

Great idea to follow one another, I have done so.

As more people add to this thread I will update the playlist, plus I may more tracks from the existing artists in the coming weeks.

Kevin

Sounds good - I will have to follow it and have a listen through! If you're still including new stuff, my artist page is here: https://open.spotify.com/artist/1qjqzEgbPSJbhOqfMXv5Kb
Search "Laptop Philharmonic" on Spotify, iTunes etc. or visit:
laptopphilharmonic.bandcamp.com

I get my statistics from CD Baby, as Spotify doesn't give any real details.

We have 9 followers ( thought it would be more, so some must not be following) and you need 25 listeners minimum to get detailed play statistics. However, extrapolating from the number of plays I see for my tracks, I reckon between 10 and 30 plays in the last month.

Would love to see more, and it would be great if we could find a way to get more forum members to participate, even just as listeners. A sticky in the new joiners section?

Kevin

With soundcloud there is a similar sense of community as here,where if you listen and comment on a track,the favour is returned. Plus,you get to hear a lot of good music.Spotify doesn't appear to encourage that same behaviour pattern,so it's difficult to see how more plays may be generated. Maybe it's just a platform and 'end of',if you are not already established,it's of little merit.

I went through the thread and hope I found everyone to follow. I don't have a playlist so far, but I've followed all the artist pages. I think....

Yeah I think I've followed everybody on the playlist......can't say that this has been scrupulously adhered to by everybody else though!

As for stats. Detailed stats are a mixed blessing anyway aren't they? On Soundcloud I can pretend that my songs were listened to all the way through. On Bandcamp I can't hide from the fact that they get skipped more often than not......if played at all.....perhaps no plays is better.
Take it easy.

You can check my stuff out here. Mini-album getting bigger slowly. Free download if you're poorer than me.

Yeah, Bandcamp is flipping ball breaking when you see that most listeners just skip tracks. Anyway stats are arse. The music has been released

Amen to that. Bandcamp stats are effing brutal. In fact, I'm certain they exist solely to discourage the less than dedicated musician :o
The first track from my upcoming album has landed -- Click to listen -- Thanks!
