Bob McNeice - 2020 Suite released October 1st
« on: 1 Oct 2020, 01:16 pm »
Hello everyone,

I’m happy to announce the release of my first album “2020 Suite”. As you can tell by the name it is a compilation of songs written about the events of this past year. I know, I know, the year isn’t over yet, but I anticipate there will be a plethora of albums with a similar theme so I’m getting a jump on them.

The album is available for streaming or digital download on Bandcamp. It is available in both 16 bit and 24 bit HD audio quality.

Bandcamp is the number one place where independent musicians can share their music without a record company. Creating a "fan" account there costs nothing and you will have access to oodles of great music, most free to stream and listen and purchase what you like with the proceeds going directly to the artist. .

About the album itself: it is an instrumental work that spans several genre’s from rock, to ambient electronic, to mellow rock to classical and several things in between, so if you listen to one track and don’t care for it just play the next one and you will hear something in a different vein.

Good work, but I expect once we get past 2020 most people won't be thrilled to play music that brings it back to mind...  :shake:

Thanks for listening guys. I would love some feedback on which tracks you really liked and why.

The 2020 theme is more in the track titles than the music, for most tracks on my album. But I hear you. I expect we will be seeing a lot of "rememberance" albums before long as musicians have spent months at home, not touring, just looking for inspiration, and this year has certainly been memorable.

I want to thank everyone who gave this a listen and especially thank those who purchased it on Bandcamp. I hope you are enjoying listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Congrats Bob!  :thumb:
I have enjoyed listening to your bandcamp tracks before so I bought the album (only $5!) and I'm downloading the 24 bit FLAC right now. It's a very easy purchase process with no login so it's easy to support your music.
Looking forward to hearing it!!
