Nr 1 in Japan on the Oricon album chart w Girls Generation

Hey all!

Today was kind of an amazing day. Apart from VIXX's Nr 1 album in Korea, I also received awesome news from Japan.

My last release of 2013 made it to Nr 1 in Japan on the physical album chart Oricon and also Nr 1 on Itunes in 7 other countries (Malaysia, Singapore, Hongkong, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia and Vietnam). The album w Girls Generation is called Love &Peace and I've got 4 songs on it! It also features me on guitar on 2 of the tracks. My co-written songs on the album are: Gossip Girls, Motorcycle, Do the Catwalk and Lingua Franca.

I've been fortunate to sell over a million physical records in the past year, during times when sales are going down all over the world. Asia is kind of the only market where the fans still are buying lots of physical albums and dvd's. Even though they have all the technology for streaming/downloading/file sharing etc. they have a strong tradition of collecting (the albums are very high end, with pictures, booklets etc) and also supporting their favorite bands/idols.

I already have a bunch of releases confirmed for early next year and I'll continue to work hard with the writing/producing. I feel very fortunate both being able to write pop/rnb music and do the jazz thing on guitar!

Regards Andreas
