MP3/FLAC

We currently offer all our albums in the widely-used MP3 file format. We also offer some of our music in the FLAC format. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec. FLAC is a much higher quality format than MP3, and so offers the listener an enhanced listening experience. However, please note that because FLAC format audio files contain more information than MP3s, the size of the file is also much larger.

Please check your chosen media player supports the FLAC format before purchasing.
