Mike, what a wonderfully simple and thorough article about the dilemma facing young musicians today. I also, as you may have guessed, liked the final paragraph on Music Education funding. You continue to impress and amaze!

New Song! "Alive" is the story of a nerd who has dreamed his entire life of the heroic deeds he would most certainly perform in the event of the apocalypse. However, when the apocalypse actually happens, he finds that things are not as easy as he would have hoped.

New single, also available on iTunes and soon on Spotify and GooglePlay.
