Site update: free MP3s and new album!
Posted by Kaleb Brasee on Tuesday, March 31st, 2009 at 11:25 PM
I just deployed a new update to Brasee.com, and it includes a couple of big changes. First off, all of my songs are now available as free MP3 downloads! I figured that since the best things on the internet are free, these songs should also be free. You get free songs, my site meets best-things-on-the-internet eligibility requirements, everyone wins! Plus, PayPal never let me set up a micropayment account (despite me calling them multiple times), so they charge a 30-cent fee for a 50-cent song, LOL.

So you can now download the MP3s directly from the album pages. I had to cut the bitrate down slightly to make bandwidth more manageable, but they still sound pretty good IMHO. I still have the CDs for sale too, so if you'd prefer to listen to the songs in pristine quality, that's the way to go.

I've also started working on a new ragtime album entitled 'Dusty Keys'. Ragtime is so amazingly fun to play, especially Scott Joplin's pieces, so I thought it would be fun to put together the songs I have played over the years. I have also written a couple of rags, so when I get a chance I'll record those too.
