Hi there everyone, hope all is well I have managed to get all of my songs onto playlists of all sorts and sizes and am forever grateful to all who have added my songs, I have nearly reached 14,000 streams since my first release which is incredible with ‘Phoenix’ surpassing 7,000 streams alone. I love how I can see how many people are listening to my song on my Spotify for artists homepage, 18 is my personal best that I have seen. I am just polishing off some bits and then will drop my promo for ‘End of Things’. Thank you all and have a good evening.
Hi there all, I have had my 4th song approved and am in the process of making a promo video for it, the release date is the 03/09/2021. I have also managed to get my songs on some playlists and am waiting on some news of a couple of reviews. Hope you all have a good night.
Hi everybody, sorry it has been a while since I added anything to my website. I managed to lock myself out of the email I use for the website!!!! I have spent the last month, promoting my music through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I have been sending emails out like it is going to go out of fashion and submitting my songs through music blog magazines and websites. With working 40+ hours a week its a challenge finding time for everything but my music means everything to me so from today going forward I will be blogging daily, what I have been doing with the music and life in general. Once again I apologise for the lack of attention to my website and assure you this passion and fire is still burning.
Hi there everbody sorry for the slight hiatus, just been sorting out stuff with work and my slightly dysfunctional life lol, I am so stoked for the release of my second single. This is going to surprise everyone how different it is to ‘Phoenix’, I am beyond words again how I feel on a whole and to top it off its my birthday tomorrow. I have not done much recording as I am focusing on promotion.
Hi there everyone, I have received my first official review as an artist!!!! This music blog website has been voted top 10 music blog for years, I am beyond words for how amazing I am feeling receiving such an amazing review. The comparisons made are bands/people I have been listening to since I was in my late teens, I really can’t believe this is all happening. Look out everyone and watch this space because your going to hear and see a lot more from Dougieto. I have started rolling out the promo for my latest single ‘Me, Myself and I’, which will be in the coming soon page. Thank you all and have a good night.
Hi there everybody, I just received an email from Spotify for artists saying they have received my song ‘Me, Myself and I’ The release date is the 03/08/2021. They have said that I can pitch it to Spotify’s playlists………..this is what I have been waiting for. This is my next goal to get on a playlist as this will put my music out there and should draw in some new fans. I am so happy with how everything is going, with the review from A&R Factory and the possibility of being on an official Spotify playlist and just being able to live my dream. Thanks again for all the support it would all be worthless without you all.
(PS) I have added an about page to my website, you can access it from the top menu.
Well hello there everyone, I hope all is well? So I managed to get a review on a big music blogging website called A&R Factory. It will be published on the 16/07/2021 at 17:00. I am over the moon that they are going to do a review and this should get my name out there and the opportunities that may arise from this are endless. I have had my next single accepted for release ‘Me, Myself and I’. I will post more on that real soon I hope you all have a good day/night.
Hi there everyone, thought I would share with you what I have been doing since the release. So the first thing I done was go on all the streaming platforms and put in my claim for my artist profile, this was surreal but I like how thorough they all are (so much information). So that is Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple music/iTunes and Deezer the others I have to do through Amuse and finally its just the Knowledge Panel on google. This will be the hardest as I have no passport or photo I.D (Sad I know) but I will be getting my provisional license soon. I have been emailing loads of music bloggers and websites to try and get on some playlists and to give me a review, I have lost count to how many people I have emailed but it has to be done if I want to progress in my musical career.
Hi there hope everyone is ok. Sorry for the delay in this blog, I am not going to lie it was a bit of a surreal day yesterday. I was having issues with my website too but all is well now. I am now officially a music artist which is amazing, I am further with the music than I expected to be in 2 and a half months and I can honestly say my dream has come true. Its now just about getting my songs heard, I will be releasing another song soon and I have submitted my song to many Spotify playlists and bloggers to help promote myself. Once again I would like to thank everyone and I invite you to listen to Phoenix and if you can follow me on Spotify.
Hi there everyone sorry about the random time of writing this blog, both my SoundCloud and Facebook page have just reached 100 followers which is incredible!!! I am so happy I could do a dance. I have been getting a lot of attention on My SoundCloud with a few of the songs getting 1600+ plays ‘Demon in my eyes’ is at 4000!!!! Just knowing that people are really listening and commenting on my songs (actual comments relevant to my songs). 24 hours time and it will be the day of my first single release, feels so weird writing/saying this, It has finally sunk in and I am ready to embrace this amazing experience and this fire in me is only getting bigger and burning brighter.
Thank you all and have a good night/day where ever you are.
