Alright folks, I'm only 40 likes away from 300.. I've been slowly growing my Facebook following and other various online mediums as I've been writing my tunes and busking/gigging up and down the east coast.

Now I'm only months away from launching my latest EP (first one of high quality that hasn't simply been a self-produced home job) - so I thought it might be time to ask you all to help me out by sharing around my profile and other links, so everyone knows I'm about to release some of the best music I've ever written.

So if you could spare a few minutes of your time to Like and Share my facebook page, and check out my other links (included below), I'll be able to keep you all updated on my progress, and give you all sneak peaks as we go along.

Much love and gratitude for all your support so far - if not for all of you, I'd really have no reason to do this :)

PS. If you'd like to help contribute to the costs of producing the EP, and my debut album to follow, you can buy all 3 of my previous acoustic releases for $7 each via the Bandcamp link below :)
