What's New @ franssongs
Hello folks! Thanks for visiting the website. There's been a lot of activity going on and I'm glad you are part of it. As you may know I posted my new song "Breathe" about a month ago. I received a lot of favorable comments from folks so thanks for listening and commenting. Reverb Nation has been a good source of generating interest in my music and on their Rock charts for Cincinnati, my profile climbed as high as #20.
I just released my latest song, "Sky Blue" and you can hear it on the left. I also threw together a you tube "video" as I'm hearing that musicians should have a video. You can download the song for FREE at my Reverb Nation site. Just click on the banner below and it will take you right to it. There will be another song that I'll release probably within the next month so check back for that or better yet, jump on the mailing list and get advanced notice.
I recently found an old video tape of a Mickey and the Mustangs performance from around 1990. There is a link to it on the left. The sound quality is horrible but hey it was the 90's and it was recorded on vhs. I'll be posting more in the future.
There's a lot of discussion in the music world about where it's going. A couple of interesting facts:
1. Most people would prefer to get music for free
2. CD sales are on the decline. People do more downloading of singles rather than entire CD's.
3. There has only been 1 album that's sold over 1 million copies this year but there have been 45 singles that have sold over 1 million.
4. While some folks are enjoying the resurgence of vinyl albums, the majority of folks still like the convenience of digital music.
Amazon has decided to stop listing albums from musicians like myself. My 2 albums, Test Patterns and Sweetwood are still available from this web site.
