Reaching one million Spotify streams was beyond my wildest imagination when I released my first song. I couldn’t begin to imagine that my songs would be listened to that many times, by people across the world.

So far I’ve released 23 songs and two albums. Since my last album Collateral I’ve released three songs which will eventually become tracks on my third album The Lessons.

My producer Jermaine is already working on my next single and I have the album mapped out so there will be at least another seven songs that I will release over the coming months.

After that? I don’t really know to be honest. I have a stack of partially finished songs, half baked ideas and snippets and I continue to come up with ideas for songs. I’ve never been a particularly prolific writer, I tend to just strum away on my guitar until I find something I like enough to spend the time and effort it requires to turn it into a song, but those tunes keep on coming and I suspect they always will.

The question I have to answer after I finish the album I’m currently working on it whether I carry on investing the time and effort that is required to write, record, produce, release, promote each song or whether I do things differently or at all. This isn’t my profession, at the end of the day it’s a hobby no matter how seriously I take it and how much effort I pour into it.

I honestly don’t know, right now I am simply overwhelmed that the tunes that have come out of my head have reached over one million streams on Spotify alone. It’s an incredible, humbling number. It’s also addictive, I want more of this ‘drug’. In the end it will be down to a host of factors but right now all I can say is that I cannot believe I’ve reached one million Spotify streams and that I’m beyond words grateful for each and every one of them.
