Did you ever hear of the name of Boffin?'
'No,' said Mr Wegg, who was growing restive under this
examination. 'I never did hear of the name of Boffin.'
'Do you like it?'
'Why, no,' retorted Mr Wegg, again approaching desperation; 
'I can't say I do.'
'Why don't you like it?'
'I don't know why I don't,' retorted Mr Wegg, approaching frenzy,
'but I don't at all.'

'Now, I'll tell you something that'll make you sorry for that,' said
the stranger, smiling. 'My name's Boffin.'

'I can't help it!' returned Mr Wegg. Implying in his manner the offensive addition, 'and if I could, I wouldn't.'
'But there's another chance for you,' said Mr Boffin, smiling still, 'Do you like the name of Nicodemus? Think it over. Nick, or Noddy. Noddy Boffin,' said that gentleman. 'Noddy. That's my name. Noddy--or Nick--Boffin.'

- Charles Dickens

I am happy to announce that the first single from my electronic project Friendly Boffin with Wesley Brach is now available for free digital download!

Or you can support our work by purchasing the track from itunes or Amazonmp3

"To the Top" is the first collaboration from Wesley Brach and myself, recording under the name Friendly Boffin.  It started as an instrumental composition from Wesley who commissioned my lyrical input.  A couple weeks spinning the track in my car stereo brought us two verses. From there we bounced it back and forth until we reached a finished product.  Jonathan Natera of Flight Audio, IA did an excellent job on the final mastering. And after a part-time and therefore lengthy process of choosing a band name and putting together some album art, we are finally ready to present it to you.

Here's the idea: If we get some good response, we'll work on a few more tracks. So please drop us a line to let us know what you think.

Please help us get the word out by sharing the track on facebook, twitter, Google+ or whatever else you use.  We don't have the distribution power of the big record labels, so it's all up to you.

Thanks again,
