about

I recently got an email from the bookstore at Bates College (my alma mater) saying that they had a bunch of my earliest CD, Long Way From Heaven, that they'd like to send back to me. This was my very first full-length record, released the year after I graduated.

A box of them arrived on my doorstep and I posted a witty photo of it on Instagram. I got so many comments on social media along the lines of "I'll buy one," that I decided to do a little experiment and actually see if I can sell them.

There's only 16 of them, and once they're gone, they're gone. The ball is in your court.

(The digital download Includes the bonus EP Lonely Town, my VERY first recorded tracks released on cassette in 1994.)
