Happy 4th of July!

Well, this blows me away: Perihelion, my last download-only album with Sam Byrd, got an honorable mention in the "Best of 2016 (So Far)" list over at avantmusicnews.com. This site is no mere blog, but an essential resource for new music fans. We are in some pretty heady company over there (and I can think of several recent albums by musicians WAY more famous and deserving than me which did not make the list) so I am, indeed, completely honored.

Incidentally, I'm putting the final touches on a solo album featuring lots of Moog. Stay tuned.
