TO BUY

We musicians get paid more if you buy from us directly, whereas streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music pay us less than a penny for each "listen", and download sites like iTunes store and Amazon give us $6 instead of $15 But you should do what is easiest for you. Thanks for your support either way!

Download

To download whole albums or individual tracks, Get in touch with me and I will put the albums in Dropbox or Google Drive for you to download (or send you single tracks by email). Or you can download from my Amazon page or the iTunes store from within the iTunes app (enter my name in the search field). You can read almost all the information from the original liner notes for each CD here on my site, but you will miss out on some of the artwork if you don't get the physical CD.
