I thought now would be as good a time as ever to write a blog since we’ve reached 5,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook. Like it or not (no pun intended), your Facebook likes are the yardstick of credibility these days and they are a measure of how serious an idea/band/business is taken. We’re incredibly thrilled to have reached 5,000 within our first year and a half. As a website that finds new faces solely due to word of mouth; we appreciate the recent inflation of numbers immensely; However, we are only getting started.
Recruitment in the last month has been fantastic. We have added many creative and passionate folks that’ll really make a difference to what we do going forward. Even more exciting; we’re still in talks a lot of of new blood who may eventually jump on board too. Remember, if you are passionate about music in ANY capacity – we want to hear from you! Visit our contact page and send us a message.
We trialed Chordblossom Radio last Sunday to much success and we’re now developing a long-term strategy for it in order to bring you a constant stream of fantastic new music. We are incredibly excited by the prospect of showcasing a constant stream of stunning music to our users on demand. Slowly but surely we’ll fill up our DJ calendar and have a show that caters to the needs of most people; including a conversational show that discusses music in-depth. We are only scratching the surface.
Another thing that has been keeping us awake at night is our upcoming Chordblossom Live Showcase (we’re calling it Blossom at the Disco). It’s going to initially be monthly and be based in our hometown of Derry/Londonderry. We have been back-and-forthing this idea for so long that we already have planned lineups for our first 6 showcases! These shows are designed to showcase the best of the best alongside the best of the up-and-comers. As simple as that. Whilst we don’t want to go to deep into details about any of this, we do think our showcases will be made up of two established bands and two up and coming bands – the best of both worlds. Since we are Chordblossom … we will extensively review our shows, both in written form, via photographs and with a video featurette of each show – maximizing the promotional potential for all involved. Not to mention the amount of promotion we will throw on our own shows. One thing must be said though; these shows are not designed to line our pockets. As a musician myself, my goal is to make our shows as attractive as possible to both venue and band – and i believe i can make that happen. No-one will be travelling from Belfast to Derry to play for £5 – that’s for sure.
Those are just a few things we have in the pipeline. If you’ve been following us from the beginning you’ll know first hand that we constantly try new things and work hard on our ideas. We will always continue to do so, but we want you to know we are not above YOUR ideas. If you have a suggestion that we should be looking into; please get in touch and we’ll make it happen together.

We are incredibly appreciative of your support.
Here’s to the next 5,000!
