Streaming music continues to gain in popularity worldwide. So far, the two largest platforms are Pandora and Spotify. Personally I still prefer compact discs but I don’t think streaming is going away and I want you to be able to listen to my music wherever and whenever you want so I’ve submitted my music to both.
Pandora has approved six of my albums already and Spotify took them all. If you use these services now, please be sure to check out my page on either or both of these services to become a listener or follower. Feel free to add my music to your own personal playlists. Just search for “Michael Kollwitz” on either- you’ll find me immediately.
My head is still spinning after making the Billboard Top Ten New Age Albums chart with ‘Serenity II’ last month and I’m happy to report it is also gaining in airplay worldwide! It debuted on the Zone Music Reporter April Top 100 Airplay chart at #9 and it has become eligible for ZMR award nominations at the end of the year (including Album Of The Year)
Serenity I & II have also been added to the soothing sounds and/or spa channel of six international airlines so someone could potentially right this minute be floating above the clouds listening to my song “Beyond The Clouds”.
Hope your summer is starting off great!
Serenity II continues to receive airplay all over the world and, due to a calculation error, moves up from #10 to #9 on the ZMR Top 100 Radio Airplay Chart for April 2018. More international airlines have added tracks from Serenity II to their soothing sounds or spa channels. The latest to do so is Thomas Cook Airlines (UK) and Air Mauritius. Music from both Serenity albums has also been featured by Hawaiian Airlines, Egypt Air, Vietnam Airlines and Royal Moroccan Air. There is someone up there floating through the air somewhere on Earth enjoying the sound of The Chapman Stick. ‘Serenity II’ has also been added to The Positivity Channel at https://calmradio.com/en/
A new review for ‘Serenity II’ has surfaced and you can read it below.
Many thanks to Keith Hannaleck for his beautiful words and continued support of my music on The Stick!
They say lightning never strikes twice in the same spot. That has not been the case with my last two albums! Serenity II landed in the Top Ten on Zone Music Reporter April 2018 Top 100 Radio Airplay chart (Serenity I debuted at #8 in Sept. 2017). Much gratitude to everyone who has supported my music- especially the radio programmers from around the world who continue to play both Serenity I & Serenity II. It was wonderful to meet some of you in person last weekend at the ZMR 14th Annual Music Awards show in New Orleans! What an amazing weekend that was. Again- THANK YOU x 1,000,000!!!
April 2018 ZMR Top 100 Radio Airplay Chart
Many thanks to Candice Michelle the host of this popular show. I’m honored!
We made it! Thank you everyone- I could not have reached this milestone without you.
“Chapman Stick Album Makes Billboard” is a headline that, until now, I only saw in my dreams… 🙂
