I don't want to appear self congratulatory, but I'm sure it will appear so. I Don't Hear A Single has just passed 1,000,000 hits. Not bad in just over six years. Particularly for a place that concentrates on new releases from a limited field by new or under appreciated artists?
This is a thank you to the musicians, readers and listeners. Without all three, IDHAS wouldn't be here. It was only meant to be a small corner of the net to mention music that I like, a reaction to the people who constantly stated all new music was crap.
It started slowly and built up gradually. This month IDHAS will hit over 35,000 views and that is gobsmacking. The biggest compliment that I can take is that people like the music that I do and hopefully it opens the door to greater success for the artists.
Everything I Don't Hear A Single does is free and every review is because I liked the album, no other motive. I am fiercely independent and any help given to an artist away from here is free. It is hard enough for musicians to be heard, most make no money from music, quite the reverse and so why should I?
I'm not used to talking about IDHAS much at all. The music does the talking, but I did promise an aural celebration and I will now start to get that together. I've been caught by surprise by the volume of visitors this month. I expected to hit this landmark at the end of the month, so I'd better get my skates on.
