New Album

‘Exhibitions of the Malcontent’ was made in my basement in Mariposa, California. This music was inspired by the restless and the observant, the agitators and the mischief-makers, the day-dreamers and the night-thinkers. I wrote the songs, played the instruments, recorded, mixed, mastered, made tapes and stuck the labels on.

Cassettes are great but, as we’re all stuck inside for a while, I have made the album available for download through ‘Bandcamp‘ with ‘pay what you want’ pricing. Today, March 20th, Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share (they usually take 10-15%) on music downloads from hundreds of thousands of artists around the world, including me. The coronavirus outbreak has had a serious impact on performing artists’ income so we are very grateful to be able to sell our music online without fees.

I hope you enjoy the album. See you soon.
