Stone Cupid Pre-Orders are LIVE! 

PledgeMusic Pre-Orders are UP and RUNNING!

A couple months ago I posted to tell you how excited I am that my current roots-rock and soul band, now called Stone Cupid, has been in the studio this spring. We've mixed our new album! It goes to the Little Red Book Mastering Lab on May 20th.
