Polar Flame Music & Sandi Thom make music history
Edinburgh based music industry experts, Polar Flame Music Ltd, were thrilled to see Sandi Thom reach 47th in the biggest selling female artists of the 21st century listing. Sandi’s hit ‘Oh I wish I was a punk rocker’ shot straight in at number 1 in the singles and download chart within a week of being released. The single sold over 350,000 copies worldwide keeping Sandi at number 1 in many countries including Australia, were she hit the top spot for an impressive 10 consecutive weeks. The top 100 female artists of the 21st century was put together by the Official UK Charts Company, the people behind the UK charts. Sandi ranked above other female artists such as Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Amy Winehouse, Spice Girls and Girls Aloud. Polar Flame Music spokesman, Malcolm Anderson, explained ‘We always knew Punk Rocker was going to be a massive hit worldwide, Sandi is an incredibly talent musician and songwriter, as soon as she let us here it, we were singing it all day’.
Polar Flame Music http://www.polarflamemusic.com promoted the single with a slightly different approach, live internet webcasts. Polar Flame came up with the idea after Sandi mentioned she had family up north and friends in Liverpool and London who couldn’t make her gigs. Polar Flame Music already had a strong interest in online PR and knew that with the internet success of You Tube, video marketing was the answer. But the company wanted to do one better and promote Sandi playing live online. After a few calls to the media, Sandi’s live webcast was getting so many hits that she not only hit the front page of most UK newspapers, but she also caught the attention of Sony RCA managing director, Craig Logan, who signed Sandi up for a cool £1,000,000 live on the final web cast. Sandi has since went on to release a number 1 selling album ‘Smile it confuses people’. Sandi is currently working on her third album with her producer fiancé, Jake Fields.
