About this project

About a year after the birth of my daughter I started singing to her and unwittingly started to write children's music. Those first songs turned into an e.p. called Things I Like that drew great performances from my regular group of musicians as well as people like Pat Sansone from Wilco and Paul Mertens from Brian Wilson's group. The reaction to the songs was so positive that I had to change my entire musical direction.

I've written a number of great new kid's songs and have slowly started to record them. We have enough for a full length record and I'd really like the packaging to be extra special. The same great core group of musicians are playing on the songs and some new surprise people will lend their talent to the tunes. The CD would be a single fold digipack with art direction and design by artist and friend Chris Uphues. The track listing includes all new songs many of which have quickly become new live show favorites. The track listing looks like this:

1 Fun To Pretend

2 Too Much Stuff

3 Germs

4 Pearly Whites

5 Pio Ta GoGo

6 Mr. Moons Song

7 It's You That Makes Me Happy

8 Me And My Friends

9 Pajama Party

10 Little Willy
