5 years Rock Bernd, 5 albums, 70 original songs





If you count the songs you will get the sum of 88. But then, on both "rockin' up" and "rock-hard & soul" are remixes of formally published songs. Also, on "rock-hard & soul" one particular song occurs twice, once in the 'rock' version, once just accompanied on an acoustic guitar. Hence, there are 'only' 70 original songs.



And here is the link to Rock Bernd on Youtube
(while you're listening maybe keep in mind that Youtube pays the artists even less than Spotify - but it's easier accessible. Should you like a particular song please buy a download from Amazon or CD-Baby)

If my web site looks crap...

... try deleting the "s" after "http" from the URL. That is try using http://bernd-harmsen.com instead of https://bernd-harmsen.com.

Okay, I'm bone-lazy. I've thought about changing my web site since ages. My entries hardly deal with the lyrics writing process anymore so the title does not fit any longer. I had said all there is to say about lyrics writing from my point of view and begun repeating myself. Now, what I'm doing most of the time is publishing my latest completed lyrics, or trying to promote my music. Therefore, I guess I should adapt the site accordingly. And, obviously, modernize its look since the old fashioned "serendipity" template doesn't work properly with the now encrypted standard protocol https instead of http (not, that I will ever understand why all that banalities on the web need to be encrypted).

I'll keep it in mind. But I will take my time. Writing new lyrics and music is more fun than tinkering about with my web site.

Cheers!

Spotify, iTunes,Youtube, Amazon... It's out there!

Rock-hard & Soul is 'out there'. You can stream the songs on Spotify or iTunes (and many other portals), or buy it from Amazon or CD-Baby.

To give you an idea how much money an 'artist' (including all the other people or the label involved) 'makes' from streams and sales per song:

CD-Baby - $0.90 (download)
Amazon - $0.80 (download)

Spotify - $0.002
iTunes - $0.001
Youtube - $0.001
Facebook - $0.000

On average, you need 1,000 streams to earn one dollar. My first four 'albums' made $3.50 (that I won't ever see in my pocket because transferring the money would cost more than that). Should you actually like a particular song maybe you should consider buying a download. Thank you and

Rock on!
