A few weeks ago while in the midst of moving we packaged up the CD and the radio single “In Transit” and sent it out to all of the jazz stations we could find in the US. We also sent it to broadcasters in the UK and Canada. Then we waited on the news from our radio promoter, Roger Lifeset.
The news has been good! It is not an easy process to break into the radio scene but the CD has been enjoying several weeks staying on the actively rising list of every chart available. I feel blessed to be in the company of many mainstream artists right along side their new projects and I can only pray that it continues.
My life long dream is to actually wake up in the morning and only have to play saxophone for my job. The main guys and girls all do that now. That is why they are so awesomely wonderful on stage. While I think I can turn a few heads myself, I know that rising to the level of being a full time artist is definitely the way to make sure that I am giving my absolute best to all of you!
So call the station near you and ask them to play that new “Erly Thornton” track and hopefully they will follow the lead of the many stations and program directors that are spinning it now.
