Album Notes
Joel has been a children's librarian for seven years. After receiving his Master's degree in Library Science from Indiana University, he worked in several Indiana libraries before moving to Cincinnati in 1999.
Joel began incorporating his original songs for children (accompanying himself on guitar, banjo, bicycle horns and kazoo) into his storytime programs soon after joining the staff of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. He has been invited by libraries, schools, and bookstores all over the Midwest to perform his unique brand of fun, interactive music and silly magic, all the while promoting literacy and use of the public library. What's Happening, Spaceman? won a 2004 Parents' Choice Recommended award.

FamilyFun Magazine:

"Children's librarian Joel Caithamer serves up a sweet, melodic, uncomplicated treat with his new album, 'What's Happening, Spaceman?'" (October 2005)

Nashville Parent:

"Here's a terrific CD with some of the best children's music we've heard. . .Guitar, banjo, bass, violin and a terrific mix result in a fun collection that rouses a country-folk style." (March 2005)

Publisher's Weekly:

"Kids will find much to groove with on this collection of fun, original musical musings on the everyday adventure of growing up." (November 8, 2004)

Cincinnati Family Magazine:

"Caithamer's happy tunes will have children and parents alike tapping their toes and bouncing in their chairs."

Sarah McCarville, Youth Services Coordinator, Grand Rapids Public Library:

"His performances were a lively mix of song and silly business, just right for the youngest child, but also entertaining for the parents."
