2. SoundClick Interview, Charts and Radios
How did it all start? How is it to be an independent artist, walking my way? Find out bits and pieces, from the latest interview at SoundClick

In the past couple of months, four of my songs reached into the first 30 on the charts in their genre, without any promotion, e.g. no banners, Featured Band or other ads, which is pretty good! The best ones are the a cappella version of There Is No Greater Sadness which reached #8 and Don't Fall Asleep with #6.

Radio stations playing my songs: violincyndee's station, little birdie's station, Looking For Voices / Buscando Voces, Músicas del Planeta

As a result of all this, my official website now is receiving 10x as many individual visitors as in the end of last year, which is quite a jump!
This way, I feel I can be there not only in all over Europe, USA, Australia, Mexico and Japan, but even in such parts of the world like Malaysia, Togo, Seychelles, Iceland or the Dominican Republic, as music lovers do get to my site from 90 countries of the world, including these exotic ones - not to mention the US Government and US Military; indeed, I have visitors from there...
Thanks for everyone for popping in to my place, and come back often to see what's cooking!
