Who is your favorite artist?
My First album of childrens music titled: "Look At That Face" - was inspired by my daughter. It's fun listening and singalong songs with added sound effects.
My Second Album "Look Before You Leap" I wrote as a concept of safety songs. I think you will find this to be more fun than you expect.
After having been a songwriter and composer of many types of music such as rock, country, ballads and novelty songs I thought it would be fun and creative to try music dedicated to children. As I mentioned I was inspired by having a child and also by listening to all the artists that perform children's music.
I decided to go to the library and take home music of many different composers to get a better idea of what was taking place with the many artists, performers and songwriters.
found many different
types of childrens music. Some geared towards very young children of
to possibly 7 and then you have the other extreme, for example the
channel which can apply to the young child and up to
years playing pop music. Now it's not hard to find lots of
rocked out kid's music. I decided to focus on a
friendly easy to listen to music.
My first album of children's music "Look At That Face" was a basic outlet for creativity. I just wanted to have fun writing fun songs that would appeal to kid's and hopefully parents also.
| Since one of my
influences were the Beatles I think I was trying to stick to that style
upbeat friendly stuff.
The next album "Look Before You Leap" is dedicated to the concept of teaching safety issues to children in a fun way. It is not an easy trick not being too preachy while delivering a message.
I was going to title it "It's a Jungle Out There" but it turns out that is a Randy Newman song and the theme song for the "Monk" TV show and I decided that - look before you leap - conveys the concept of the album just right.
I have included many jungle and animal sounds hence the jungle reference.
