This is my third album, "Once Upon a Winter Eve," that I just released! Comparisons include Enya, Bach, Danny Elfman, and John Williams, (to name a few), but it's best just to listen for yourself.

The songs are in rich .wav format and I use high-quality CD-Rs. This CD is entirely created and engineered by me. I composed every single note and created the album artwork. I print the inserts using a professional Epson printer and matte velvet fine art paper. The artwork is printed directly onto the CD so you don't have to worry about labels ruining your CD or your CD player.

I also have 2 other albums in my shop, see photos 3-5.
