My dear friends around the world,
Let me start this by sending each one of you a big virtual hug.
While I considered postponing our "In V Minor" album release
(scheduled for April 14, my babushka's birthday),
I came to the realization that perhaps now is exactly the right time for this record.
Music is such a magical force.
It has helped me deal with stress all of my life, just as it's helping me now.
I wrote most of these songs to get me through dark times and to ease my fears.
Perhaps they can be of help to others.
I know many people are struggling now and I never want lack of money to prevent people from enjoying my music.
Also, I really want you to hear this album!
"In V Minor" is a collection of introspective songs about love and loss, healing and depression, hope and despair, recorded with piano, guitars and strings (and vocals, of course).
I am making the album available for free, with the option to buy a CD or send a donation.
Here are Spotify, Apple Music & Deezer pre-save links:
Free, with donation optional:
You are more than welcome to buy a CD, and I will sign/hug/kiss each copy, as always!
But we won't start shipping until it's safe to do so.
ALBUM RELEASE CELEBRATIONS:
To make it convenient for time zones around the world, we'll have 2 concerts:
Sunday, April 12 at 12:30pm US Pacific (8:30pm GMT+1)
Tuesday, April 14 at 7pm US Pacific (which is Weds GMT+11 at 1pm)

Big hug to each one of you, see you online, and... HUGE thanks to every person who worked with us on the album and who sponsored and pre-ordered it.
More on that on the release date, April 14th!!
