I (Orin) am grateful to begin this relationship with WLP, just as Oddwalk continues in relationship with GIA and the music and recordings we have through them.  Stay tuned – a few more pieces of Orin’s are coming through the pipeline at both GIA and WLP, and we’ll let you know here when they are released.

 

PS – As part of the piece being published, we’ve had to remove the older audio from our pOddcast – so listen all you want at the link above!
