Bandcamp and Free Music Download Codes!

As you may have noticed in the previous section, I have established a presence on Bandcamp as another source for my music.  I for one have used Bandcamp many times as the platform offers artists a way to provide music in a wide variety of formats.  I also want my music to be as accessible as possible as I understand many folks prefer to acquire and stream their music from one direct source.  It makes sense to include Bandcamp as a source due to it’s growing popularity.

With my addition to Bandcamp, I’m also offering download codes for both my albums in the Good vs Evil promotion to the next 10 subscribers to my newsletter!  So please share this with your friends and family!   If they sign up for the newsletter at they’ll enter a chance to win download codes for free digital copies both albums !

What’s Next

New Music

I’ve slowly started work on new material.  One of the first tracks I started working on was once again reviving an old song titled Candles which was based on a poem my oldest daughter wrote many years ago.   It’s in it’s very early stages. You can sample it on Soundcloud below.



It’s possible I may be able to spend some time in my studio at the end of the week working on new music.  Be sure to keep checking for updates!

Hosting Platform

I am looking at re-hosting my music site to a different hosting provider.  I chose hostbaby as the platform because it provided many features and allowed me to get something up that offered a responsive design and built in support for audio, etc.  It appeared to be something I could use to easily create my primary online music presence and make edits, etc in a timely fashion, but I have discovered just way too many limitations in their platform.  I also just didn’t have the time to put forth my own efforts into developing out a site myself.

However, with the limitations in the hostbaby platform, and the fact that I can’t redirect a subdomain such as to it, nor have it hosted as a subdomain I had to create   But I’m just not happy with that choice OR the platform.

My ultimate goal is to find a new provider.  Possibly SharePoint (I mean I am a SharePoint developer), but I’m not going to necessarily lock myself into that.  Once I find a new provider, I want to rehost my music related content as a subdomain of  Once that is done, will simply redirect to it for awhile.

That will happen over time.

I hope you enjoy reading this newsletter, and if so please leave me your comments!
