It's been a few months since updating the Bruce Blog. Sales continue to be fun to watch with the website CD sales and especially the broad landscape of sales that is managed by CD Baby (iTunes CD sales and downloads, CD Baby CD sales and downloads and from the myriad of streaming websites). I get a monthly report that continues to amaze me with sales in 4 continents! Fun stuff.
I have been on the road quite a bit this year with 2 trips to Arizona, Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Indiana Virginia, North Carolina, Missouri, and of course a lot of time in both Idaho and California where I split time. Lots of music and lots of fun at the various stops.
Setting up some potential gigs in San Diego with my long time childhood friend and drummer, Larry Willson. Check the calendar for winter dates. I will try to do a better job of maintaining a current calendar than I have recently.
I've written three new songs and in doing so, have tried to expand my horizons. The new tunes are a reggae, a blues finger picker and an indie style song with a syncopated beat. Fun ones! I will be playing them during the winter gigs.
Hope to see you soon! Drop me a line if you get a chance. Always good to hear from you. Bruce
