Released January, 2010, this is our first full-length CD, featuring 11 new songs. In this fuller, yet still intimate album, Spring’s love of Celtic music is evident as she plays the Celtic Lap Harp on To Hear Your Voice, and the penny whistle on All Creatures….
Songs to Code By was an idea handed to me by a good friend at a former place of work, who shall remain gloriously and humbly nameless.
It was simply that a collection of music should be made in order to have on hand to listen to while coding….ps. these songs are my first project mixing/etc using Presonus, and so things are well…yo know, not quite ready for prime time, but it was fun. I may go back & remix/re-master at some point, especially Milestones, as some tunes would be worth it. Feel free to right-click & download the tunes HERE Rich
My name is Rich, and I’m the guy behind the music.
