Well, folks. I've had this music sitting on my hard drive for the longest time and decided, as a sort of New Year resolution of sorts, to just let out into the wild.

I've played various tracks on my show, so there won't be anything egg-cracking new. But I hope that you might enjoy some of…Continue

From the release page:
I first want to thank those of you who wished me a happy birthday.
