Craig Robertson's New CD

Yup. It's me. I always feel a little weird about self-promotion. I guess I shouldn't.

You're right, you shouldn't. It's a whole new music biz out there.

Congrats on the new release!

This is pretty low-key self-promotion
and word has to get out somehow. I forwarded my Psychic Hamster notice to a favorite uke blogger and if he sends it along to others and they do the same, the spreading ripples should
ensure Better Liar a place on the charts. Which brings up the question, is there a uke chart, official or
unofficial anywhere, so we can see
how albums do? Or would the numbers be depressing? Very nice cover, too...

I ordered it April 18, and I
haven't received it yet.

Got mine today. Strikes me as the
mature work of someone who's been
there, done that, seen plenty, and
survived to tell the story. Deserves
to be heard far beyond the ukulele
world and I hope this happens.
