Local Artist Jeff Grant that has decided to offer up his most recent album for free!  This is third LP entitled Behind the Scenes, which you can also purchase those from the same site, which seems to be a little indie nugget.  You can go and get the entire 16-track album here.

Channel) and I have been amazed by the caliber of writing and delivery -- easily my favorite comedy show on television.  But as I started to follow him on Twitter i noticed this project of his entitled Culdesac, a hip hop and R&B album.  A serious attempt at music.  Say what?
