My first album "Playing (No Rules)" is OUT NOW!!!

Album available here http://bemuzic.bandcamp.com/

I kept things very simple and stripped back on this, so the songs would sound like they do when I play them busking (minus the noise of lorries reversing, large groups of chattering tourists, bagpipe players, builders drilling and banging, town criers shouting etc, etc!!)
I know I hate it if I hear someone live, then buy a CD and it doesn't have the same feel at all, as it has loads of tracks and effects.
I used a Red Dog Cigar Box Guitar on the first track, and a Cigar Box Guitar strummer by tinyguitars on track five.
On the other ten songs I used instruments I've made myself : -)

You've got me hooked and I'm looking forward to the release date. As others have already said, it sounds like you've really developed your singing voice. I'm glad you went for the simple approach because it seems to have worked well for you.
