Announcing Deep Salvage. Redux.

Let's try that again.

Last week, I posted that Deep Salvage, a four-song collaboration between me and my friend Dave Tutin, was finally available. What a fool was I. Not because the album wasn't ready (it was), but because I chose possibly the very worst day of summer to launch it. Yup,  despite all my years in marketing, I opted to launch Deep Salvage on Thursday before the 2010 4th of July weekend. In other words, just as everyone was frantically making preparations to spend some quality time with family and friends, I popped up and basically said, "Hey, stop what you're doing, listen to my new album and pay me some money." Chalk it up to impatience. Truly, I have been DYING to release some music for so long I just couldn't wait any longer, and I wasn't thinking clearly.

But enough with the lame-mentations. So one more time, Deep Salvage is out! You can needle-hop it using the player below, and if you like what you hear, you can download your very own copy at

To thank you for your support, if you choose to download the album, Dave and I will send you codes for two free songs, one from Dave and one from me.

To give you more background on the album, Dave and I will be posting about the songs all week. In fact, Dave already has a post up about The Forgotten Place, so check it out here!

I hope you enjoy Deep Salvage. It was made with a lot of care and enthusiasm, not to mention blood sweat and tears, and it has a very deep meaning for me, as it is the first album I have ever released, something I have wanted to do since I was teenager, maybe even before that.
