    Not sure who will see this message, so I will try different ways to contact artists! Now ready to move on to the next phase of this project. Had a lot to do on Facebook, and elsewhere, setting all of this up. spent several months doing it, in-between working on, and promoting my own music. this is one of many playlists I've put together (made of musicians that are in the habit of exchanging support). I want to connect with you on Facebook to amen this work, but I will be sharing this playlist, and your tunes, to the more than 60 groups I run on Facebook, as well as to many other groups and twitter pages, so it's well worth connecting with me on all sites. So here is the link to the playlist you are on: https://www.reverbnation.com/label/thevisionariesmusicianswithvision/playlist/3583786
