New Music Giveaway!

Edit: Contest Closed


Today I am very excited to be featuring a friend and musician who's music I absolutely love! He recently came out with a new album, and at the end of this post I'll give you a chance to win it!

Daniel Jorgensen's interest in electronic and ambient music has been a longtime in forming. Percussion lessons from his father as a child led to a degree in music and percussion. After graduation he continues to follow his creative spirit as a composer, and works with the band Owl City as the music director. I met Dan in university, where we played together in the school wind symphony (I played trombone, he played percussion).

He releases music both under his name and under the name "Carinthia," which is the name of a small province in Austria where he grew up.

I love all three of his albums, and I listen to each one pretty much every morning to help get the day started right. His music is a perfect blend of peace and beauty. Here's a clip of my favorite song from his new album:

Not only does Dan write great music, but he's also generously given me a copy of his newest album to giveaway to a lucky reader! If you'd like to win a copy of "Leaving the Night Behind Us" leave a comment below and I'll randomly select a winner after April 14.
