May 2016 Sampler

Released on Bandcamp, April 10, 2016; track #1 was added on May 7. (Listen)

Just a collection of some of my songs, while I work on a “real” album. There’s a variety here, and it spans about 10 years.

Three of the songs — Thorns and Blossoms, Father’s Prayer, and Autumn Breeze — also appear on the Traveling Together EP (2013). Father’s Prayer is the identical track; Autumn Breeze is a nicer remix from 2011. Thorns and Blossoms was remixed/remastered on May 20, 2016.
