More Milestones on my Yellow Brick Road

A long time ago in a place faraway I had my own dream, of making music MY way, of recording it as authentically as I could, of taking the finished product to the world and asking 'how do you like me?' Lot of water under lots of bridges as they say, since then, and I just passed another few major milestones on my journey. Being Number One Blues Artist on Reverbnation for almost 3 years since my first release is incredible enough, being inducted into the USA Blues Hall of Fame is huge, enormous, being the first ever Indie Blues artist to 'open' the Jazz Network Worldwide with a month long feature I will not easily forget, having my own radio show on Womens Radio now aired on 8 other networks in the USA/UK & NZ is something that I'm proud of..............but........... Hitting the RootsMusicReport Blues Chart in the USA at #5 now with my self produced first album In The Making is a major, major milestone for me - when I look down that chart and see the calibre of the artists in there and realise I am the only non-American artist among them: this feels good. To realise that airplay put me there feels good. And..........I finally got this album on CD Baby which is another tiny milestone for me. The glowing reviews on there for my work makes me glow too! I love my music but how wonderful that others love it too. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/tommiebrewster There's more!! I got my act together with my blog site on Blogger and will be using that a lot more; if you care to read yet more of my words, here's the link: http://tommiebrewster.blogspot.com/2011/06/more-mi lestones-on-my-yellow-brick-road.html Lots of thanks too for all the live interviews that I've done recently - I put 3 of them on my website in case you'd really like to listen to me talk!! http://www.tommiebrewster.com/#!__interviews-of-me And just now big thanks to Regina Swarn Media & Entertainment for the month long feature here: http://reginaswarnweeklyfeatures.blogspot.com/2011 /06/tommie-brewster-monthly-feature-story.html


5 years - where did that time go?

This month of October, 2013, I celebrate the fact that it is 5 years since I first released one of my blues songs, Can't Leave You Alone, on Reverbnation. It went to #7 immediately, stayed there for 15 weeks and put me at #1 blues for NZ where I have stayed ever since. It seems a long time ago and yet it also seems like just yesterday. So much has happened in that time: I released two blues albums and saw them chart up to #4 in the Blues/Roots chart in the US and looked down the rankings there to some of the icons of blues and could hardly believe it; I released a spoken word album, several videos, wrote in total over 400 copyright songs and am still writing new ones constantly, in many different genres. I raised a lot of money for children's charities, did benefit concerts, moved house and developed my own radio network, Tommie Talks Music which is now broadcast in the US, the UK, Europe and NZ on over 28 different radio networks. I have blues shows, World Music shows and my Interview shows. I created a monster that now has a life all its own. And still the music goes on appearing in my head,my heart and my soul; there are not enough hours in the day or night; I am music's prisoner and it never leaves me alone for which I am grateful. I have had happy times and bad times in those five years, been promised a lot and let down a lot, learned lessons, picked myself up and carried on. And always there is music.......always. So thank you if you support me and my music by listening or maybe even purchasing, or if you tune into any of my radio shows. I appreciate you. And I appreciate Paddy and IM Radio who also have always supported me. xxxxx Tommie


Being heard

I was asked by a music journalist last year when I released my first ever single, what was it that I wanted from putting myself and my music out into the world. My answer was that I just want to be heard. I have been writing music forever - I started playing piano at age 4 - and music is my life my heart and soul - and blues is the genre that speaks loudest to me So to be here on IMRadio where the emphasis is entirely on 'being heard' is just the best! Thanks IMRadio!!


Tommie mystagemusic Featured for September

I joined mystagemusic.com only about 10 days ago after following a link given me by a very very nice guitarist friend of mine. One more site to get used to, one more site to spend hours ( this is New Zealand here folks - broadband is a figment of someone's imagination!) uploading mp3s and a few pics, one more site to browse around and see how many familiar faces are there. I think it's a great site actually; it concentrates on the artist and the graphics are great and I like the idea of being able to display your music in the 'sets' they have up there. Nice. So, totally stunned to find that I am selected to be one of the Featured Artists for September - in fact I am the Featured Blues Artist for September!!! Thankyou Mystagemusic!!! The package/backup is very, very good in terms of support and widgets and so on that they provide for you to maximise this opportunity - I like it a lot! So hope you'll come and check me out and any of you not on there, I would recommend you join up......... For myself, I feel quite proud that, having finally got my dream out there in terms of writing, playing, singing, arranging and producing just a few of my songs, they touch people enough for them to come back for more! love Tommie


TommieBrewster feature blues artist again on mystagemusic OCTOBER

Only few short weeks ago I joined mystagemusic.com and was thrilled to be selected as the Featured Blues Artist for September. The support from the site is great and its ongoing even after the month is over. They decided to run a vote for Featured Artists and the response I got from my friends and fellow musicians to this was overwhelming to be honest, both in the votes and the many (nice!) comments they left on my page, so much so that mystagemusic had to close my comments page! The result was that they again selected me as Featured Blues Artist for another month, October, which is quite amazing to me. So I have to say a Big Big thankyou to everyone that voted - and you can if you wish carry on voting for me at this link: http://www.mystagemusic.com/mystage-blues/ just scroll down and hit the thumbs up icon. The track chosen to play on that page is Break It To Me Gently which is a song that is not playing on my MySpace player so many of you wont have heard this which is a bit different love the reso guitar on it! Its playing here now..

hi Tommie, CONGRATS on being IMRadio's Featured Artist Showcase. Your review on our Home Page reads, "New Zealand’s Tommie Brewster brings a beautiful voice and a blues sensibility to her music. Songs like “Won’t See Me For Dust”, “Break It to Me Gently”, and “How Wrong Could I Be” make you want to sit in a saloon with a drink and listen to Tommie sing all night long. How much we’d love to fly across the world and watch her perform! Till then, listen to her on IMRadio! MC Rydel" Have a wonderful week! peace, Paddy
