We go to CRS in Nashville. That is the country radio seminar which is been going on for I guess 50 years where all the radio guys ,programmers,artists, managers, record labels --you name it come together in Nashville and everybody goes to everybodys showcase and to be truthful it is crazy. So we do interviews, host a showcase, shows are played and all that. So Country artists love to be on this run in Feb.

ArtistFirst Radio Network


From the Beginning

On November 15th, 2013 after eight months in the recording studio, my life long dream came true with my first cd of original lyrics titled "Original Lyrics Dream". Thank you so much to Kham Loraamm, David Pezza and Josh Gould for taking part during this time. I look forward to every session at Clear Track Studios.

My tracks are being played across the globe and I have met some GREAT people. What a thrill to see my listeners and where they are from in different parts of the planet. I have well over 60,000 fans between Internet radio, FM radio airplay, Facebook, You Tube and Reverbnation, and never imagined there be ONE. Thank You.

I discovered FM radio promotion with Music Submit, a New York based company. Music Submit introduced me to John Clare with Radio Johnbc in the United Kingdom. Streaming exciting new Independent internet music 24/7. John recently said "I just listened to I See The Light on the Rock @ breakfast playlist. A great way to start the day". Thank You, John, for your kindness and friendship. I have now on FM Radio and internet radio around the world. It is so cool to receive a twitter alert and hear my song 'Border War" to close the EGH Radio Show. Thank You Anne.

We continue to practice our music on a weekly basis. Kham Loraamm, our guitarist and great musician also has a solo cd titled "Writing in the Stars"beginning with the first Clear Track recording session on March 22, 2014. Kham plays electric, acoustic guitar, violin, bass and vocals. He was brilliant on my cd Original Lyrics Dream, check out the solos! I was the producer on his cd and contributed background vocals on a track 'Holly's Song". I will be back in studio for my second untitled cd on June 20th, 2015 and have already selected the 10 new tracks of original lyrics, rock and acoustic sound. Looking to forward to working with Spencer Bradham again in studio.
