Numerous radio stations are already playing "Shine On (You)" or have it on their upcoming playlists. At the right side you can tune in in a UK radio show by JJKane shared at various radio stations... (MP3 is data-reduced, for best HiFi-quality I recommend the "official music download" !)
For many years I had been working for other artists & publishers as composer/songwriter, arrangeur, studio musician, music producer, sound engineer... now I started doing my "own musical stuff" with all that knowledge and experiene behind me! :-)
"Shine On (You)" reached the german Amazon Charts (before the release date) and ended on TOP 1 in category "Soul" (even if it is more "Soul-Rock") on Sunday 8th Oct. & Wednesday 11th Oct. 2017!
Here a screenshot from the german amazon website:

The american musician and music reviewer Brandon Hall wrote on numberonemusic.com:
sample: ... "Shine On (You) kicks off with a great sounding vocal harmony that leads into a fantastic and satisfying heavy big riff. The verses are very cool and mellow, semi-reminiscent of an overall Pink Floyd vibe. A very David Gilmour inspired rhythmic guitar approach with a vocal delivery that feels much like Roger Waters pushes the verses. The chorus is incredibly infectious, driven by a harmony that hooks the ear with a near Queen feel."...
StereoSTickMan Magazine wrote:
"Jo Oliver is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist offering up a hook-heavy sound that fuses the evolution of rock music with a somewhat more retro pop backdrop, making for something that you recognise fairly quickly as his sound. Shine On thrives on the high energy of the instrumentation and the strength of the key line. The set-up fuses distorted guitars with classic keys and a vibrant drum line, on top of all of which the artist’s characterful leading voice delivers the song and its underlying sentiment with notable power.The song appears with a lot of weight, the rhythm and that hook linger long after the song has finished.

To carry music in your heart…. Music or rather making music is a great deal more than only exercising, cobbling sounds together and performing a song: It is always a journey into yourself, a contribution to your inner balance, zest for life and growing awareness.
Musik im Herzen tragen... Musik bzw. Musik machen ist weit mehr als üben, Töne zusammenschustern und einen Song vortragen:
Es ist immer auch eine innere Reise zu dir selbst, ein Beitrag zur Ausgeglichenheit, Zufriedenheit, Lebensfreude und Bewusstwerdung! :-)
