Some new Distributors on board

A few distributors have decided to pick up the CD in the last week (see list in the sidebar). Most notably the progressive rock vendor/label Kinesis. Larry provides good honest (not fluff-job) reviews of the CDs he sells. Here some of what he has to say about Abstract Expression.
This album is more imaginative than most guitarist’s CDs, more richly textured and symphonic. In fact, forget it’s a guitarist’s CD and just think of it as a very enjoyable instrumental progressive rock album at an attractive price.
CD Baby and Guitar 9 both cater to independent artists like myself. So if your are picking up my CD and in the mood to go shopping take some time to browse around over there. At CD Baby I discovered a fantastic trio called the Travis Larson Band and ordered their CD Suspension on Friday.
Abstract Expression Review from Sea of Tranquility

... All instrumental, and not just a "guitar lovers" experience, Abstract Expression blends many styles and moods, proving that Kulju has a penchant for songwriting in addition to his fine guitar and keyboard skills.
... Abstract Expression is a fun listen, highly melodic, and recommended to those who like instrumental progressive rock with a touch of jazz-fusion.

Here are the intial thoughts from one owner of Abstract Expression posted out there on the internet. I like any review that contains the words BUY THIS ALBUM.
OK, just popped it in the home system - on track 3 now. I'll put up a more detailed review later... but...
BUY THIS ALBUM.
Very well done. The production is really to be admired.
So far, it is based on solid grooves and interesting time signatures, as opposed to pure wankery on any one instrument.
It is genuinely interesting... and did I mention the mix? Wowza. Very niiiiiiiice!
Many times, a solo effort is overly focused on one instrument. Not this one. Well rounded, indeed.
Wonderful job, Dave!!!!!!
And I think I deserve some credit for resisting the urge to quote and post a photo of Sally Fields at the Oscars.
