This blogging software I use, WordPress, is wonderful. It’s easy to use, and it has a lot of cool features. For example, it tells me how many views each post gets, and what country they come from.
I’ve been surprised at how many viewers come from all over the world. I’d like to think that’s not entirely accidental, so I pay attention.
Lately I’ve noticed an older post that seems to get one or more page views almost every day. So I did some counting.
My June 20, 2021, post about a Swiss boogie-woogie piano pounder who calls herself Ladyva (but born Vanessa Sabrina Gnaegi), has totaled 531 views in about a year. That’s a whole bunch more than anyone else I’ve written about — and I’ve written about some fairly well-known artists, if I do say so. I hope it’s not just one of you viewing every day!
With that in mind, I checked her web site to see what she’s been up to lately, and found a delicious new (at least to me) single she’s released, titled simply, “Stomp.” Which it does. Which she does.
Ladyva is simply a great piano player, songwriter, and sometimes, singer. She doesn’t seem to have done much on this side of the big pond, but check her bio for an impressive list of accomplishments.
And then listen to some more of her irrepressible music.
