I want to make a really amazing recording of music for children & families and I need your help. While I'm not an "official non-profit" I really don't expect to make money on this CD - I just want kids to have the opportunity to hear these songs performed by amazing musicians. Keep the arts alive - and help our youngsters have access to quality arts!
WHO: My name is Jeffrey Friedberg and I perform over 200 shows a year for children & families with THE BOSSY FROG BAND. For my 8th CD of music for children I want to record "15 Songs Every Kids Should Know (& will LOVE!)" with an amazing roster of musician friends (see list below).
CONCEPT: You know those songs that capture the essence of childhood - that tap into what it means to be a kid? Those songs that kids have been singing for hundreds of years? Songs like Shoo Fly, Skip to My Lou, Froggie Went a Courtin', Old McDonald, Down By the Bay and more.
PLAN: Well, I've gathered an amazing roster of musicians - from Irish to Latin, Bluegrass, Cajun, Rockabilly, Jazz, Blues, and African musicians - who have all agreed to each record 1 - 2 songs each on this CD. These artists include The Upsouth Twisters, Mayra Casales, Sean Flemming, Lynn Stein & John Burr, The Bossy Frog Band, Adam Falcon, Alice Leon, Steven Bernstein and more! And we're going into the studio in November, 2012.
This CD is going to be both a beautiful recording and a useful resource. I'll post lyrics and videos online so you and your kids can sing along and learn these songs. This CD is going to be a beautiful interpretation of 15 classic children's songs - that every kid (and adult) should know - and will LOVE!
REWARDS: I've got some great rewards for your participation - from pre-ordered copies of the CD/download to having your child sing on one of the songs on the CD! My time frame is to record this in November, 2012 so please jump right in and "kickstart me".
Thanks you for listening and for investing at whatever level you can.
Thanks - Jeffrey
Risks and challenges
This project is exciting as I will be coordinating a lot of musicians - but I have help! Greg at OK Records will be engineering and mixing the CD so I am in good hands! And as this is my 8th CD, I know the ropes so here we go!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
