Release Date

Joy's Coming Fast is scheduled for release on Saturday, December 15th, 2018. It'll be available to stream on YouTube, and to purchase on Bandcamp either as a CD or digital download. You guys, you're gonna like this album. The quality is nice and clean, and the low range of the harp is a beautiful bowl of bass resonance. It's pretty. I'm happy.

Hello, people! While we wait on the album, I've made two YouTube playlists: one of my 2011 album Small Fish, and one of all instrumentals. There are no ads on either of them.
