Limited CD Update

The Haiti Mission CD is sold out! But I held a few back (less than 10) for some fun promotions in the future. These will never be printed again so I couldn't stand to sell every one of them:). So, I'm back focused on recording tracks for a full length CD release. It's been a long road since I'm tracking as money and time allows at my home studio and at the homes of friends and guest musicians. More to come...... stay strong!
