As you might've guessed, I'm a one-man shop. that means my policies aren't too robust, but it also means I'm a human who's not hard to deal with.

If you have any difficulties with the site, especially with the shop, send me a message using the CONTACT form and I'll be in touch with you as soon as possible.


I'm very happy to work directly with retailers to distribute my product. If you are interested in retailing Desolation Sound or any of my other work, feel free to contact me through—you guessed it—the Contacts form! Doing this work as a solo gig gives me a lot of freedom to negotiate wholesaling deals that work for you.


This stuff won't interest you unless you're a lawyer.
