"Café Allongé" CD PRE-ORDER and instant "Hot String Swing" E.P. Download

Café Allongé's official release date is 9/15/2021. Your PRE-ORDER purchase helps me push past the final financial hurdles of music mastering and physical production to finish it. Purchase also includes an instant download of the "Hot String Swing" Demo E.P.

However, a healthy amount of the songs are brand new, written during quarantine, and released here for the very first time! I play every note that you'll hear on the album on a wide range of stringed instruments. These include Gypsy Jazz and resonator guitars, steel guitars, ukuleles, and baritone guitar. I even threw in a little plectrum banjo and banjo ukulele this time around!
