Groover wrapped 🎁

Normally, we don’t pay a whole lot to these end of the year “wrapped” stats, because Groover has been SUCH a positive and productive experience, we were curious as to the insights that it found with the playlist curators, radio stations and bloggers who placed our music and also they results they noticed from their listeners. 


According to Groover, we landed in the top 11% of its users by submitting our 8 tracks last year. 💥😬 It also said that Brazil loved us more than ANYONE—out of the 38 countries we placed in—and that “It’s Gonna Be Alright” was our most loved track by curators. —I mean, we SUSPECTED some of this, but it was REALLY nice to see the actual data to prove this. 😊 —Needless to say, we’re going to continue to use Groover for the foreseeable future. (See our post HERE if you want to know more about this experience.) 

The importance of self-care for the D.I.Y. Rock Star:

Preparing “Daylight” video 🌅

And, in fact, our NEXT song that we’re sending to Groover is “Daylight,” which we are releasing on my birthday. —We’ve talked about this BEFORE, but “Daylight” is the song that has gotten our day started for the past 4 years. It gives us our focus and  purpose, so that we can begin each day empowered to “win” the day, whatever winning looks like in that moment. So, we will be happy to pass along this power pill to all of you. 💥 You’re welcome! 🙌🏾 (Tune into our YouTube channel HERE to check it out on Friday, February 2.)
