I’ve got some thrilling news this week. Melaena Cadiz is my FIRST #1 RECORD!!! WHAT! So incredible (but so deserved!) It’s on the Canadian-equivalent-of-CMJ-site Earshot‘s Folk/Roots/Blues chart from last week (July 13): check it out in all its glory right here! Or even easier, here is a lil’ screenshot for you!! This week was its debut on the chart: debut at NUMBER ONE!!!
The record’s doing great elsewhere, too. On CMJ’s Top 200 chart, after tying for #12 Most Added three weeks ago and debuting at #155 two weeks ago, this last week it hit #100!! That is so good. Plus the good folks at Zink Magazine just wrote up this review of her, which I love for (aside from totally glowing about the record) including an adorable story about her as a child.
I think that’s about it for this update…just wanted to brag. More info about Melaena directly below this post (or here for the googlers)!
