I Just Can’t Help Myself

 The latest CD

THANKS for your support!!
Yep, been awhile. I first started promising myself this CD about 4 years ago… maybe longer! But it really wasn’t time. There were songs to be written, artists to discover, and heck… I needed to practice!! Well, that and I finally got a round tuit.
So now it’s FINALLY completed! I hope you find some tunes you like!
