Pauper  Piper  Princes (released on March 11, 2017)
     
  During a visit to The Bodhi Tree House in July 2004, I again took my recording equipment and managed to plant the seeds for some of the compositions that now make up "Pauper Piper Princes."

With the release of "Meditations On The Day" in
February 2016, I was finally able to start work on
finishing this collection of songs.  This work included
upgrading everything from SONAR 6 to SONAR X3
and incorporated the use of virtual synthesizers.

To listen to any of the songs in this collection, click
on the song titles below.  If you like what you hear
and wish to purchase a hard copy of the CD or MP3
versions of the individual songs, you can click here.
