Restless

I’m cheating a bit with this first track. My studio is in the process of getting moved so I haven’t really started making songs for NothingExpected yet. Restless is a track I made a while back.

Welcome to NothingExpected

My goal for 2009 is to make as many songs as possible and to make them all freely available as soon as they are finished. That’s it. I’m not spending the year trying to finish albums, make new websites, or doing any of the other things that can distract an artist from making art. NothingExpected.com will be my (relatively) no-frills delivery system to make these tracks available as soon as I finish them.
