*There are always some great cd projects that haven't made it to the gallery yet, so check back for more!

a continued thanks to writer Curt Yeske for the wonderfully written article in the business section of the Trenton Times March 12, 2006. That article keeps showing up on the web in surprising places! He really captured what I try to do, and it was a great way to celebrate my 100th cd cover in '06!   read the article

Thanks to all of you for continuing to put out your music! The world is a better place because of it!
