Apple Music reports once a week and tell us not only who’s been playing Barry’s music but where as well. It’s fascinating to see in any given week the various towns, cities and countries where people are listening to his music. And it’s also newcomers to his music because we get a Shazam list too, people who obviously didn’t know who was singing/playing the song so they decided to look it up using Shazam.
For example, this week “Sweet Little Angel” was getting all the attention in Kochenëvo. We had to look that up to see where it is. It’s right in the middle of Russia and not too far from the Kazakhstan border. Isn’t it amazing that we can know people there are checking out Barry’s music and identifying it via Shazam. We hope they’ll become lifelong fans.
