The Giraffes – We Hear Music

The Giraffes - We Hear Music - cover


I am humbled and thrilled to be able to offer the first new Giraffes record in 15 years on fourteen seconds! Chris Ballew has created a new double album using his beloved Giraffes moniker, and released it to a few fans and friends to distribute. It’s beautiful and you should download it – just click on the album cover!

Thank you, Chris!
