Bottle of chilled guitar music?
Since it happens to be 10 years since I recorded some chill-out guitar folk recordings (‘embertime‘) in France, I’ve put together a 10 yr anniversary album, featuring the original order of song outlines & experiments.
Check it out now: ‘Distilled 10yrs‘ on UJO, and use MetaMask to buy for only $4.99. It features all those home recordings and some others related, or from back then.
