“The Weeks” – Launching…now!

The Weeks Cover

Hi everyone!

It’s a super exciting day! I have now officially launched my second full-length album of original piano music. Here’s a sample of the first song, “The Weeks.” Get the full version on the album!

It’s 14 tracks in all, 12 of those tracks were featured first on this very website as “New Tune Tuesday” selections and you can listen to them on this site. But!  Track 1 “The Weeks” and Track 4 “When We All Have Awakened” are both brand new songs written for this album specifically.

I feel like this would be a good time to explain the main ways to get this music:

1.  Bandcamp:  Bandcamp is the best way to buy music to support the artist, and if you are a music lover.

PROS:
–Gives the artist the largest cut of the sale of their music.
–Allows the fan to set the price they want to pay.
–Allows the fan to download the music in any audio format they desire.

CONS:
–If you own an iPhone or iPad you have to sync your device with a computer to get the music on to your phone.  Or you can download the Bandcamp App from the App Store and register on the Bandcamp website.  Then you can listen to any music you buy from Bandcamp on your phone through the App.

2.  iTunes

PROS: If you own an iPhone or iPad this is the only way to download music directly to your music library.

CONS:  Artist receives less compensation for their work.

3. Amazon

PROS:  Lowest prices of any of the online stores.

CONS:  Does not download to your Iphone or Ipad music library, but the Amazon Music App works really well and can download and play tracks from the App.

4. Google Music

PROS:  Works great for Android Devices

CONS: Like Amazon, does not download directly to your iPhone or iPad music library, but the Google Play Music App is available on iOS and works great.

5.  Spotify:

PROS:  Both of my albums are available for streaming on Spotify for free.

CONS: Spotify pays a third of a penny per played song.  So it definitely does the least to support the artist.

There you have it! It’s available on a few other stores and radios as well, but those are main ones.

Thanks for supporting me and my music. It’s been a pleasure bringing this music to a larger audience so far, and I can’t wait to keep it going.
