Momentous Record Deal

Still have a CD player? I've got a new thing brewing..  I'm now partnering with Momentous Records to sell hard copies of the REAL CD's from my catalog. After realizing my offerings were scattered all over, I collected the iTunes and Spotify download links to my CD projects. These can be viewed at the new "Store" link on this site.
