I'm finally live streaming!

So, as I continue to try out new apps, websites and learn new ways to promote my music and connect with fans I've FINALLY got onto live streaming!

Yes, yes, I know...I'm a bit late to the live streaming table!

However, I have finally started to use Periscope, via my Twitter account and I have to say...I bloody love it! The fact it is instant videos direct to fans is so much easier for me to get content online compared to filming a video and uploading it to YouTube.

Granted there are quality issues that you can iron out and make right with having a pre-planned and worked out video, and I certainly will not stop making content for my YouTube page, but I love how I can connect instantly with people on Persicope and play them a song or chat with them...

...although I am working on my Live chat. There's a lot of pressure, give me a break y'all!!

Because yeah, I'll be honest with you - I'm on a bit of a learning curve with the whole live process. There have been issues with the picture quality when I am out and about (shitty signal etc) and I've cropped my head off a few times, but I am getting there and I am trying to live stream as much as possible so as I get used to it. One thing I am trying out is doing a Monday Morning Music, stream, which you can tune into watch at 9am (UK time) on a Monday morning. I'll play an acoustic track and have a brief chat to kick start the week. If you are around please do come watch and message me.

I chose Periscope over Facebook Live or Youtube live because I have the audience there and it seemed simpler to me. I also LOVED this message on the load up screen:

"Proudly made America by Immigrants"! Wonderful. As soon as I saw this I knew I had made the right decision!

Like I say I am a newbie, so for all those that are just starting out as well, I will continue to report back any breakthroughs or successes I have! Until then, please do come watch my channel and join in, I'd massively appreciate it!
