Greetings. It's a pleasure. Sorry about the poor quality and unprofessionality of the recordings and the performances on the recordings. I don't consider these the best I can do by any means, so I hope you won't judge me too harshly. These are pretty much just the takes I got right after writing the songs, recorded hastily so I could move on to something else. I've been trying to write as many songs as possible over the past months. I just wanted to get the ideas out there in the hopes that somebody would like to hear them. I promise I'll do better someday and maybe you'll like to hear those. Please tell me if there's a song here that you'd like to hear a better take of, because that would give me a chance to focus on one. Feel free to tell me I suck, too. I have a fan from Minnesota that keeps me going. No idea who it is.

Have you performed in front of an audience?
I've played in front of people a fair bit, at coffeehouses and a bunch on the street actually. Now that I've got a bunch of my own material I'm trying to figure out where to go to do a show. And whether I can remember the songs. Expect an update any time.
