TO BUY

The musicians get paid more if you buy from me, whereas other retailers take their cut. But I don’t want to slow you down, so you can also download, or buy from local stores in Ithaca. Thanks for your support either way!

Order from me by check

Please print this order form, fill it out by hand and mail it with your check. Or stop by my house with cash!

Order from me by credit card or paypal account

Use yellow “add to cart” buttons. Paypal will open in a separate window and you can view your cart there.

Download

To download whole albums or individual tracks immediately and pay by credit card, use my CDBaby page (takes a minute to load but it's nifty when it does), or go to my iTunes or Amazon pages. 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.
