While I appreciate your interest in my music, I must ask you not to give my music away; it is not yours to give away, and a violation of international copyright law. Please remove your download link. Thanks, Dan Lewis

Thanks for responding to my request to remove your download link to my music. It is very difficult to make a living as a musician; it takes a lifetime of effort, and very few ever make any money. Every day is a struggle to survive and just pay simple bills and buy food, and that struggle often takes me away from my music to somehow pay the bill due last week. I'm sincerely grateful to anyone who listens to and enjoys my work; thank you. Music is mostly a spiritual pursuit, but living in this world gets more expensive every day. If you think about it, you could not survive if your work had no value, no one could. I'm simply asking that, if you sincerely value my work, then don't give it away; honor me by supporting my efforts, which will allow me to create more music. Best regards, Dan Lewis
