New music is here!
"Little Big Things" is a collection of songs geared towards children (of course, big people will enjoy these tunes too!) which celebrate every day wonders and adventures that are big deals for little people.
I've been looking forward to releasing kid's music for years and I am excited that the time has arrived.
"Big Big Things" is a collection of songs that explore aspects of life we experience and think about as our life experience grows longer. Big deals as well.
I am extremely happy and honored to feature cover art by my niece, the very talented and creative Kate Kelly! Kate created the cover art for my 2012 "Sketches" album.
I am looking forward to getting out into the world once again to share my music as it looks like the world may be headed in the right direction. At least as far a s COVID is concerned. Stay tuned here at www.brucemandel.com to find out where I will be performing and if you like, sign up for my email newsletters which go out about once a month unless I have news in addition to gigs. Like these new "Little Big Things" and "Big Big Things" recordings.
Like so many of us self-employed independent artists, I am looking to keep some sort of income coming in. If you are able to and would like to, please check out my album downloads from the drop-down menu under "MUSIC/DOWNLOADS" in the menu above and my "WEB STORE". If you like what you see and hear, pick something up. It sure would help out and be greatly appreciated!
If you would like me to sign or personalize anything, just let me know.
Another way you could help out in these challenging economic times is by contributing to my "VIRTUAL TIP JAR".
Two ways to do so would be -

While streaming my music is cool and appreciated, streaming revenue is measured in fractions of pennies and, well, you get it. According to an article published by Visual Capitalist titled "How Many Music Streams Does it Take to Earn a Dollar?", Spotify pays $00.00437 per stream. That is 229 streams to earn $1.00. Now, I can tell you that I earn between $00.0001 - $00.005 from one Spotify stream. Not sure why I get different amounts per stream. You Tube - 1, 449 streams to earn $1.00.
Streaming music was an $8.8 billion dollar industry in 2019!
You get the idea.
Directly purchasing my music through my website means much more money actually makes it to my pocket — when I need it most.
That said, if you are struggling like many of us are, your money is no good here.
If you would like a little pick me up, if your day needs a smile, pick a song or an album that connects with you, drop me a line right here through my website by clicking on "CONTACT" above on any page, and give me an email address where I can send you some mp3 files.
I miss you and I hope to see you soon at a live show.
