After all these years, it's kind of strange waking up one morning to over 50K streams on Spotify. The promoters who want you to follow their "system" to DIY riches in music promotion would scoff that so small a number means anything at all. Certainly we're not getting rich from all those streams. So who cares? We do. What it means is that someone is listening, and apparently liking, what they hear.
That's all we need to keep going.
