Fill The Sky spends first week in the Top10!

Today marks one week since the release of Fill The Sky for worldwide digital distribution, and we are excited to report that not only has it reached the Top2 in the iTunes Spanish Rock Charts and become the best selling rock record during the week, but it has been hanging in the top 10 ever since release, competing with major artists such as Queen, Bowie, and Dire Straits. Fill The Sky has yet to abandon the top10 on the iTunes Rock Charts, and with some press coming up in the next few days and your help, it might even come back to higher positions.
However this goes, we hope it serves as motivation and proof that independent artists do have a chance to make their music reach the masses, and to go head to head with major acts even without the backing of a big corporation and huge publicity budgets. So good luck to all self-distributed musicians out there!

Fill the Sky climbs the Charts!

Andre’s latest album Fill The Sky has been sitting at number 2 of the Rock charts in the Spanish iTunes Store, just behind Bob Dylan’s best of album, and has just reached the position 18 (and climbing!) of the overall charts. And if this isn’t incredible enough for an instrumental guitar album, the album reached the top of the Recent Bestseller list, as well enter the All-Time BestSeller list.

Thank you so much for making the album such a success and let’s see if together we can make this one the little album that makes it all the way to the top of the charts. Anything you can do to increase awareness in your country will go a long way towards demonstrating that independent artists can reach the top, no matter what music they play!
