To my fellow Musical Brothers and Sisters, Subscribers and Fans . . . I will be leaving NumberOneMusic as far as "Campaigns/Promotions," perhaps for the rest of 2017. My plans to release the Album "These Words Remind" is being delayed until 2018. Please continue to enjoy, download/stream and share the Originals and Covers. Peace to you and your Loved ones through the remainder of this year and I wish all of you success in your endeavors. You've given me a lot of support throughout this first year and I'm hopeful I've brought you assistance by sharing my music on your personal Social Media.
P.S. Happy New Year! 2018
To my fellow subscribers (2:53 A.M. 8/11/17)
I haven't touched base with you in a while, so here I am in the middle of a late night or early morning depending on ones perspective. We all have a passion for Music or we wouldn't be throwing ourselves out there for the World to see ... at least our small group, right? It doesn't matter ... The late Frank Zappa wrote a song 'We're Only In It For The Money' ... being sarcastic as only Frank could do. However, I'm not in it for the money or even the recognition. I do this because it's a LABOR OF LOVE and if you're not passionate enough, perhaps it's time for something else. Music is for sharing and sometimes just for ourselves - therapy, if you will. Okay, the Nine (9) songs I've posted thus far is the tip of the iceberg as they say and to promote more, well - you know it's tough. I'm going to release "These Words Remind" Album soon which will include some or all of the digital singles I've released and/or in the process of releasing for sale. Just for the fun of it, I am going to upload some cover tunes that can be downloaded for your music library or to share or to simply ignore. That's OK/Alright. We all have our "cup of tea" and may agree to disagree on what is good, bad or indifferent. So, hope you enjoy and I appreciate so much...so very much the sharing/postings/support all of you have provided. I have to happily say that I'm involved in several projects but will attempt to get to your campaigns as soon as my schedule allows so that I can support you more than I have. I'm hoping the music that has been shared by you has brought attention to your projects and has created excitement and fired up your ongoing passion for writing, producing, engineering, mixing, mastering and marketing ... It's not easy and we all need each other. Please remember my other passion to support Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. ALL PROCEEDS from the sale of the digital single of the title Album song 'These Words Remind' are going directly to the organization. On FACEBOOK, I also have a personal Fundraiser where you have the opportunity to donate directly to St. Jude - any amount will do ... your pocket change - I mean that! - every penny counts to find a cure. Cautionary note: 'My Little Red Book' has three genre examples with my individual contribution snuggled in the middle, so when you start to listen, stay with it. It's my tribute to Burt Bacharach & Hal David's song which has been covered by many but on the Rock side, famously by Arthur Lee's group "Love". Some of the other's are straight forward copies of the original versions as I tried to stay true to the authenticity of them. All recorded in my little home studio, some several years ago. I hope you enjoy. Again, FREE DOWNLOADS from yours truly.
P.S. Only 'My Little Red Book' is attached to this Subscribers email; however, the other covers will be on the Song list placed after 'If One Knows'
Just uploaded a new Song titled 'Before the Music Fades Away' ... Adult Contemporary, Contemporary, Pop Genre's ... All Words, Music, Vocals and production performed by Mark Alexander Carroll (ASCAP)
All Copyrights reserved. The lyrics have been posted and am in the process of releasing it as a digital single and, for now it is scheduled to be one of the listed tunes on the forthcoming album "These Words Remind". Reminder, ALL PROCEEDS are being donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital located in Memphis, TN. from the title tune 'These Words Remind' ... Any direct donation amount is acceptable.
It's been a few weeks since I've contacted you personally and, having said that, please accept my HUGE "THANK YOU" for giving me the opportunity to make a lot of progress in moving up the charts. Many of you, besides sharing and influencing others to listen to the music, have given me excellent constructive criticism and encouragement to carry on. I want to also take this opportunity to give you my sincerest apology by not sending you individual notes/comments via the email communication line. I have been simply overwhelmed with the response and have not been in the position to do so. I most definitely want to do my part in helping you in the same ways you have for me. That is what is great about NUMBER 1 MUSIC and the many tools that are available. The social media shares have also given me a boost in other website activity. On a personal note, please understand that I am the primary caregiver of my 91 year old Mother. I am not making excuses or complaining but just wanted you to know "time" is not an asset I have a lot of. However, I know you have many responsibilities as well and there are so many people in our World who's circumstances are worse. If only our Music could bring some joy into their hearts, that would be the best repayment - at least for this guy could receive. Now, for the Music, I have added Lyrics for "(An) INDIGO DREAM' - the experimental song that was written just as I arose one early morning. It's not everyone's cup of tea and perhaps the lyrics may assist you in seeing what I saw in my minds sleeping eye. The attached song that I am uploading and will start a campaign on is titled 'If One Knows' ... It's my first entry into a more Acoustic Rock Genre and tells the true story of one of my relationships (i.e., if only I had known ahead of ... la la la!). I will furnish the Lyrics for the tune as soon as I can. Please give it a listen/try and I hope you will enjoy my fellow Musician Friends. This is a great World community that is as close to being in PEACE as we can get. So, I'll help you as soon as I can and once again, I appreciate you - all of you individuals and member bands - ALL genres. Take care of each other and yourselves.
Mark Alexander Carroll P.S. - Still awaiting the official digital release of 'Hopeless' ... 'You're The Disease' ... and this new one I'm posting "If One Knows" ... More to come
