What Happened To Mike?

I'm afraid I won't be playing at the Fair Trade Country Cafe much any more as I moved to Vancouver to take a job as a Macintosh programmer with a software company there. After a year in Vancouver, I returned to my home state of California to work for a company in Silicon Valley.

If you live in the Santa Cruz or San Francisco Bay areas, Watch This Space for my live performance schedule. I'll be playing open mics, and soon, for the first time ever, I'll be playing on the street as a busker.

At each appearance, I'll be passing out free copies of my CD Geometric Visions: The Rough Draft - while supplies last. Read about Why I set my music Free.

Back To Our Regularly Scheduled Program

Before I moved out West, I used to appear weekly at the Open Mic at the Fair Trade Country Cafe in Truro, Nova Scotia. I played the piano, with selections from my album Geometric Visions, as well as some classical and jazz pieces.

Because my CD has a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license, you're welcome to burn copies for your friends.

If you can't make one of my shows, you're welcome to download my music. You could really help me out if you shared it over the Internet.

(Back when I was appearing at the Fair Trade, I gave away about five hundred free copies of my CD. Eventually Ray Merriam, the cafe's manager, convinced me to sell them instead. But I gave away my CD in part to get more people listening to my music, a goal which I'm finding is not served by selling my album. I'm going to ask Ray to go back to giving them away for Free, and will ship them up from California.)
