My new children's album, "LA LA LA", is now available on iTunes and Amazon -- as well as on my new and improved online store!
If you buy the physical CD (available from my store), there is a lyric coloring book inside! All artwork is done by my super amazingly talented friend Polkaros!
On the first page of the coloring booklet, I've written a kind of "mission statement" of what I intended for this album that I'd like to share with you:
I've always wanted to make an album for children because kids are some of my favorite human beings on earth. After hearing how so many kids of friends as well as strangers were drawn to my debut EP and album, especially to my song "Dream", I hoped that one day I could make an album that didn't pander to kids, but rather could invite them in on a more soulful level. I truly believe that "kids' music" doesn't have to "talk down" to them in order to be understood. Over the years, I'd been accumulating songs for this project, and in the end I decided to select the songs that had the best energy, the most positive messages, and touched on introspective emotions that I know, from first hand experience, many children feel in some way or another. This album is not trying to be fancy or clever. It's simply intended to be an album for kids to hop and bop along with, fall asleep to, and if I'm really lucky, inspire them to ponder and dream.
I hope you all get a chance to hear the album! It's for kids and adults alike.
