Good blog and great music.

Mike Gorman, NYC Songwriter, has released two new albums for free, 'A Strange Wind' and 'My Tanglewood Days'.

Info on the albums from Mike:
"I made two albums in my bathroom in Queens, NY (quietest place in the house with the N train outside the window) and they are free on my website. I like My Darling Pearl and The Well off of "A Strange Wind" and Spring's Old Drum on "My Tanglewood Days".

They are both available here:


Thanks and enjoy,
