Good news! The Lullaby Album was accepted for airplay on Pandora Internet Radio. My first album is on Pandora and I get most of my referrers from this station. So I love it.
Anyway, the reason why I am extraspecially excited about The Lullaby Album being accepted, is because Pandora has really tightened up their submission guidelines. Sadly they are rejecting more albums (many that are very good, too). They also have many more requirements for artists, and you also go through a preliminary “audition” before even sending in your album. I was nervous that the new album wouldn’t make it. So I was indeed quite stoked when I got the acceptance email.
Other good news, is that the raving reviews are starting to trickle in from radio promotors around the world. Here are just a couple of the encouraging comments we have received about The Lullaby Album. (You will have to forgive some of the grammar, as some of these broadcasters are from countries where English is not their first language).“Dear Carolyn,
Your daughter and you made a great album: wonderful and awesome arrangements, excellent and delicate performings… CONGRATS! Also, brilliant work of Jace on the orchestrations, Jillian and Lori on vocals and Paul on technical support…I prefer the second disc (solo piano) because I can realize best about your mastery on pianos. Please pass my congratulations to your daughter… and of course, I am going to share the album with my audience when I go back to the radio station after Summer holidays.
Once again many congratulations to you and your daughter for a superb piece of work.
“I received your new CD last week and loved it. I meant to email you last week but the summer has been pretty hectic here at Interlochen and it just skipped my mind. I entered your CD into the New Age Reporter database and used two cuts on my show last Saturday. I talked it up a little too. I will air every song over the next few weeks.
You and Jennifer have a beautiful collection here and it’s a perfect fit for my show. Thanks so much for sharing it with me!
“I debuted your new CD last week on my show. I was hopeful that you and Jennifer would allow me to podcast it as well. I wanted to double-check that even though you are both on the podcast roster this is a joint release and I’d feel better knowing you were both agreeable.
