The “Destroyed Together” EP is officially released today. Here is the third and final track, entitled “Right Here”.
You will be able to find the EP on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon MP3, Spotify and just about every other online music shop/streaming service.
*Nerd Alert*: If you are looking for the highest quality download (and best deal, actually), then you will want a lossless format from Bandcamp (like FLAC), as Bandcamp allows me to submit my 24bit master (will sound better than a CD track) to generate the downloadable files.
Thank you to all of you who have purchased it already!
The new website is now up and running. This will be the new online home for all of my creative works.
