  • "DUDE! Cloud 9 right now man! So so awesome! This is absolutely crushing what the last record did on radio through vitriol. It took weeeeekkks to even break the 200. You guys are geniuses! Super exciting. I'm gonna try and spread the news as best I can on FB & Twitter and get on those Thank You emails! " - Dan Weaver At The Loom

  • Hey Jon, Hope all is well. I just wanted to give you an idea of how well the placement on Real World has worked out for me...I just got my iTunes sales through just the first week after the episode aired, and I did almost $2000 in sales that week alone! Amazing. Thank you again for all your work! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some more placements! - Juliet Lloyd
