I didn’t tell anyone that as the September 21st my first single went out for radio. My promoter and I decided to see what would happen naturally; therefore eliminating any favorable bias from my family and friends. As it turns out, my first week was a promising one. This morning I woke up to an exciting phone call and some shocking emails from my promoter. These emails were all music industry charts that indicated the current top songs for radio. Fortunately, I now appear on these charts. Here is a list of the charts and where I rank when applicable.
Hot 100 Singles Chart (Top40 and AC/HotAC Formats) # 84 (I am above songs by The Fray and Rob Thomas)
AC/Hot AC Top 30 Indie Chart # 22 (I am just below a Cobra Starship song)
Top40 Top 30 Indie Chart # 17 (I am above La Roux’s kick ass song “Bulletproof”. You should check out this song!)
AC/Hot AC Most Added #3 (I am above a Bon Jovi song)
Top40 Most Added #2 (I am above Mariah Carey song)
Top40 Spincrease #2 (I am just below a Lady Gaga song)
Top40 Up & Coming

Also, tune into FX tomorrow night at 10pm to see the episode of “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” that I did some music for.
Thanks for all the support, and special thanks to Bill Jerome for working hard at getting me on these charts.
