Lovely! Naturally, I got all of your solo stuff as well, so the 3rd album will be as welcome as the band project stuff. I will monitor the band camp page closely. :-)

Oh yeah? That's cool. Thank you. By the way, I highly recommend Bandcamp to all musicians who put out music. It's the best music download and CD/merch site I know of. They take the smallest percentage (around 10-15%) and give you a lot of options such as HQ audio and all sorts of things. You can actually make money from Bandcamp vs. streaming services where they give you a fraction of a penny per stream which usually amounts to very little unless you have millions of streams. But, for Indy niche genre music those services are horrible. Bandcamp is a good way to go.

I just re-checked your band camp page, and found some items that I am still missing - so I guess there are still things on the shopping list... :-) I have to admit that I am also an Apple Music user, so indeed, I have access to some stuff that's included in the subscription - and I often feel guilty about paying so little. However, I try to support some of my favorite artists by ordering items from them directly or via band camp (did so with Marillion, Amplifier, Fish, Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree, Pineapple Thief, Oceansize/Vennart, Fightstar and a few other of my favorites, plus a few indie bands that nearly nobody knows - I guess these people need that kind of support, especially in times where concerts and festivals aren't possible in many places due to the coronavirus situation).

Fortunately your great attitude is the balancer in the current Indy/niche music side of the industry. I don't blame anyone for using the services and we ALL use YouTube to check out a song so easily for free (uploaded usually be some unauthorized person no less). But, wanting to support the artists and also have physical copies or higher quality downloads keeps it going. Thank you.
