Music I have purchased on Bandcamp


Sometimes instant gratification wins out and I need to obtain a musical recording as soon as possible. Many people turn to iTunes and Amazon, and I have purchased my fair share of music from those outlets–mostly with gift cards from friends or family.

Suffice it to say I support the local music scene.
