Seriously? If you’ve made it this far? Do me a favor. Check out the record. Pick up a copy. Heck, get two. Then tell a friend. Please.

‘Cuz I know people think music should be free, and everyone’s tossing around MP3s like they’re nobody’s business. But they are somebody’s business: mine. And it’ll be much easier for me to make another record if this one does well enough to justify another record. Cool? Cool. And thanks. Ya’ know I love ya’.
