Hi there Kickstarter-backing friends!
The CD is out and we are hearing great things back already - yay!
I have more promises yet to fill to you that are coming! Just getting through this big initial push (and Easter weekend simultaneously - whew!) If you haven't gotten your signed copy in the mail it's because I have not received your address! (or international mail customs hold-ups...)
BUT I NEED SOMETHING FROM YOU...
I need your CD review online. Particularly in iTunes right now as we're pushing there. Yesterday we were as high as #12 in iTunes in Canada! But when people visit the CD in the store - YOUR remarks may make them decide to give me a try!
Please take a minute right now and visit iTunes and write a CD review/rate the CD!

Thank you all!!
