It’s not every day you get a private message telling you that your band is #20 in the number one independent music chart in the WORLD!!!… but that’s exactly what happened this morning as I was sipping on my morning coffee.
I was jolted into consciousness by a message from the wonderfully supportive Frank Davison, radio presenter and Artistic Director of the Wangaratta festival of jazz & blues, congratulating us on the Starlite Campbell Band’s European blues awards nominated album ‘Blueberry Pie’ hitting #20 in this week’s Roots Music Report world album charts!
NOW FULLY AWAKE! 🙂
When I looked into it, the Roots Music Report charts compile radio airplay data from radio stations around the globe that play all forms of roots music, so that each week you can see which independent artists are being played the most & by what stations are playing them.
Unlike some charts out there, the Roots Music Report charts are not subjected to radio promoter, special interest groups or record label input and they do not alter, accept payment for, or manipulate the airplay data to give special rankings on their charts.
All I can say is a huge THANK YOU to all the presenters, radio stations and listeners for your fantastic support!!
