To complement Youtube channel and the Facebook page, the duo starts its activities on social networks Instagram and Twitter !
In addition to airing the track Crazy Old Man daily since the album release, Option Musique invites the duo two times in a row in its studios. Option Rösti on Feb. 15th is a one hour show for promotion of Swiss artists who are invited all along the day. The duo had the occasion to play live two titles from the album, On a hill and Playing Tricks On You. The album is then selected for the Swiss Album for the week between Feb. 25th and 28th, with daily diffusions of music and interviews, and copies of the album offered daily.
The local Geneva radio Léman Bouge is the first one to answer the call, and immediately air the album by selecting it as the "Album of the Week". "The refined Crazy Old Man will not only delight blues fans, but also all the ones who know how to open up their ears. A tremendous success !"
Option Musique follows the lead by airing daily the title Crazy Old Man. At last, Radio Swiss Jazz airs Hell on Wheels, Yearned For You et Catch as Catch Can.
