Where your $5+ goes:

All of my recorded music is available to listen for free on my website: if you enjoy my music, I don't think you should be charged just to listen to it! When you buy this EP, you're buying digital music files you can take with you (duh). Additionally however, you're helping me gather the funds needed to finance future projects such as:

- Getting the rest of my guitar compositions recorded
- Recording my piano/keyboard works
- Using music to make the world a better place (ask me how!)

The percentage of my earnings BandCamp takes for their services will go towards maintaining a website that allows countless independent artists such as myself to promote and sell their music easily. In other words, when you purchase this EP, the money that doesn't go to me will go to helping the independent music community continue to flourish. Pretty cool, huh?


released June 10, 2011

"Curean" was very much a DIY project. The composing, performing, recording, mastering, copyrighting, logo design, and album art were done by me. Most of them were things with which I had no experience, so I had to teach myself everything as I went. Though frustrating at times, it was ultimately a rewarding and eye-opening experience.

That all said, none of this would have been possible without the scores of people who have shaped my musical and creative development. There isn't enough space for me to list all of you, but know that you have my gratitude!
