Pre-orders have gone out as of today. Only available as a download. Order now and receive instant  link. You’ll also receive a HD abum art & lyric booklet.

MP3s play on everything. You can save it on whatever external device you use (USB stick, etc) or burn your own disc. They MP3s come in different quality levels. These are 320 kbps: the best. (If you’re an audiophile, you can ask for the wavs and I’ll send those instead (each mp3 is roughly 5-8 MB, wavs are more like 35-60. MP3s take up less space on your hard drive but there is no significant difference in sound.)CDs are virtually obsolete. Most people listen to music on their desktop pcs, macs, laptops and phones...even when driving. If you ordered a CD, I already sent an email offering to refund fully, or partially with a download. Please get back to me. I'm not a mind-reader. Much. 

Sampler opens in new window. .

Jan 2016 I am interviewed in a chateau in Dijon. In this video I talk about my work, my music, a surprising abuse of human rights in both the US and France, relationships, and I show acclaimed French author and actor Hugo Horiot another use for a riding crop. This 7 minute film was shot by Parisian director Camille Achour on location in Bourgogne. (avec sous-titres)




Please, if you like my music, order Penny Dredful or purchase one of my other albums on Itunes or anywhere. You can also donate on my help4aspergers site, but I should think you’d like to get a CD or digital album for your trouble. Every little bit helps this very independent artist. Thank you.


À bientôt, xxRudy

Pandora sent me an email saying that they've approved THIEF OF DREAMS for their roster. It will be live soon, and I'll tweet when that happens.
