After over a month’s worth of preparation and interaction with some of today’s most generous and talented artists, I am proud to present you with The Road Goes Ever On’s first mix tape. Not only were these artists kind enough to correspond with me, they were willing to share unreleased material exclusively for this album - some even creating entirely new songs to premiere on the tape. With that said, I encourage you to not only take advantage of the wealth of free music they are all putting out on their bandcamp and SoundCloud pages, but also to give what you can to fuel their future work. While these acts may not sell out stadiums or top billboards charts, the songs on this tape, along with all the music they’ve released thus far, show that they possess the ability to carry us to unexpected heights. With that, I am humbled to present Small Summits.
