No Strings Attached - Kids Songs for Philippine Relief CD
"I Was Born"
was chosen as the opening song on this excellent fund-raiser CD. All
proceeds go to typhoon disaster relief, via UNICEF. This is available as a
CD or mp3 download via CDBaby.com.
We're (still) working on completing the recordings for our next CD in our almost state-of-the-art home studio.
Don't they say, "The perfect is the enemy of the good"? Wonder what that means?
Clearly, we haven't figured that out yet.
Meanwhile, though, you can get detailed, up-to-date information on our recording activities and songwriting on
