Hmmm, I lost my daily job as a architectural technologist/designer. Tough times now to pay the bills. Would be nice to make some bucks with music but this is kind of unrealistic. Everything else is fine, rehearsals, some gigs, lots of songwriting, recording. You can buy our CD's on Itunes> search for EFUZE. We call the music story-telling instrumentals (Fusion/Jazz/World..) Thanks!
