I make a fine living at my day job. But I’ve created some merchandise and buyable tracks for two reasons: first, the “merch” is part of the experience. These images inspired stuff as well as songs. Second, I hope to make music its own self-sustaining activity–including, for example, assembling and paying a band that may include folks who make a living at music. So if you like the music, take a look and purchase whatever makes you happy.
You can buy MP3s or a physical CD direct from me through ReverbNation.
“How’s a Man to Find Hope in These Hard Times” mousepad. This image really started the whole songwriting process: this is now my mouse pad in my studio. Buy at Zazzle. “What are Working Folks to Do” luggage tag. The image just fits, doesn’t it (on the back there’s space for your name and all that). Buy at Zazzle. Mugs: one mug for each song, with the image that inspired the song and the lyrics that struck me as what belonged as a mug. Buy individually or get the lot at Zazzle.
