I was just informed via email by CD Baby that another royalty check for download sales of my music is on the way. They gave me a breakdown of where the downloads came from (Spotify etc) and some of the different countries. I will have top 5 songs that were downloaded for April probably tomorrow for you. I am attaching part of the email so you see some of the different places that Human Project Music has been downloaded. Very cool. Very rewarding. Very grateful.
Humanization is spreading.
Get on board.
Tuesday...all good. This blog still relevant. Rock on.
Here is the link to "She Wants to Dance." This is not on my main You Tube Channel, just this secondary one that is only for people like you that are interested in things like this. I play everything on this song. I will not be putting it out there for sale in this current form. But I did enjoy doing it.
She Wants to Dance
My Podcast, Human's Show continues to do well. I am not a professional DJ by any stretch, but most of the other shows, well that's their thing. So cool mine ranks so high. I do know alot about music probably way more than they do if truth be known. Interesting bit of information. Russia was the #1 down loader of the show the past week, edging out the USA.
There is a reason I got the nickname The Human. I was second to none when it came to music back in the day. I can reach in and pull out some nuggets for ya.
Keep it Rockin!
I am giving you link to She Want's to Dance so the below write-up not totally accurate.
Wishing you a peaceful Sunday and hope you had a good weekend. I went back to work on "She Wants to Dance." I wasn't happy with a couple of the parts, especially related to the lead guitar on the breaks. I was going to get AC Myles to do it, but I hunkered down yesterday and just did it myself. Everything you hear on this song, I am doing. Listen for little nuances. This is a home studio job so it will always fall short of what could be done in an actual studio. But honestly, for me to do a single track or song in a studio would cost me $500.00 minimum. Yeah minimum. And I have spend a shitload of money over the years. So for now, It's home studio. I will be putting up link to She Want's to Dance soon. Keep taking it slow and ya know I appreciate ya.
6 CD's of almost entirely original music. One download only release.
One of the top selling artists in the Central Valley of California, and certainly it's most prolific songwriter.
I always have a song that you can play at the bottom of my home page. And I always put a little commentary about it as well. Make sure to always check that out if you are a big fan. You might find it interesting.
The most recent song I did was, "Lets all Come Together." I wrote it because the political environment we are currently in is so mean and toxic. I really don't recognize our country anymore when it comes to this type of behavior. The goal of my song is to stress that we are all American's and our ancestors have fought, spilled blood, as yes even died to keep it free, and to help other nations stay free as well. While I do buy into the philosophy of peace, love and tolerance of the 60's, I realize there are times when you have to fight, particularly when it comes to terrorism and evil. Some people and groups have no place on our wonderful planet. That brings up back to the song, Let's All Come Together. We need to all make a concerted effort to "lighten up." There has always been liberals and conservatives and there always will be. The "other side," is not the enemy and is not unpatriotic. That's ignorant and silly. So maybe we can try and think more about what we all have in common as a great nation and realize that we are all here because all races and nationalities paid a stiff price for this to be so. Let's not destroy ourselves.

Peace and Love to you.
I hope everyone had a great Easter. It has now come and gone, and just like everything else it just flies on by. I hope to get back to the music this week. Have been working on some lyrics that are pretty much done and now just have to fire up the studio and start working them in. That is fun. I always change my podcast, "Human's Show," everyday and link to it is in upper right hand corner. I will keep you posted on the song. Have a great week!

Easter Sunday is right on us now. The weather here in the Central Valley of California is warming up and it's very nice. I have traveled quite a bit the past month, so maybe I can settle down some and get back to the music. I want to thank you for all your support, especially the special ones that check out my website and my blogs. I also want to wish you an awesome Easter and that you can spend it with someone special or with family. This world is complex and has a high level of intelligent design. Every species is on this planet for a reason. Only one person can be responsible for such an incredible design. Happy Easter 2019.
