Uh Oh Moon Reviews:

"There is so much to love about this CD: Intelligent, introspective tunes and beautifully blended voices riding on a bed of tasty instrumentation and impeccable production values, for starters … great for bedtime, daytime, anytime actually." -John Wood, "THE JOHN WOOD REVUE" Kidzmusic.com
November 2005

"Cooper and Bounds seem to have found each other in some type of divine musical intervention, because their voices sound so natural together."- Stephanie Joudrey, indie-music.com (March 4. 2006)

More quotes:

"Voices and songs that melt in your heart, and a consciousness that makes you stand up with gospel fervor and say, "YES".-Terri Garthwaite, Joy of Cooking, Singer, Producer-

"Outstounding vocals, harmonies made in heaven, strange and beautiful lyrics; and there is something more than that, something special about them just on the other side of where words can't go. Be prepared to laugh; not because they are funny (they are), but because they bring such joy to the stage. And be prepared to cry-not because their songs are so sad, but because they touch you with such sweetness and sharpness that it is physically tangible. There is a high level of integrity to these musical creations. An unexpected sophistication woven through seemingly simple stories sung to straightforward melodies. The musicianship and technical arrangements belie that simplicity, seducing the intellect, until caught delightfully unaware by the heart." -Heidi Barton, Mainstage Director of the San Francisco Folk Festival (nine years ) Concert Promoter and Founder, "Music for the Folk By the Folk"-

"Their harmonies are heavenly and their original lyrics are strange and hauntingly beautiful. They¹ve been enormous hits at the last two San Francisco Folk Festivals."

-Randy Pitts, Director, Freight and Salvage, Berkeley


THE STORY OF THE UH OH MOON

THE UH OH MOON: You leave your house. In your mind, maybe in a dream, you can fly, swim around through rainbows, avoiding the points of stars, but in any case, you are out of the house and on an adventure and it is night and the moon is as big and as round as the earth. UH OH.

AFRICA: Oddly, given that just a minute a go you were surrounded by the dark night, you are in Africa and the sky is red and the hills are blue. We think the hills are blue to coax Giraffes into keeping their heads held high. Giraffe's tongues are blue and so they like to be near their friend, the sky.

ON OUR PLANET: And then you think, being a Citizen of This Planet is an interesting thing. You like it and decide to circle round it and sing about what you see. You hope you can remember by morning.

JACK RABBIT: Looking down, you see Jack The Rabbit, a tricky guy who hops in, hops out, and loves the one he's with.

THE HERE AND NOW: He lives in the Here and Now.

THE COYOTE: In Taos, where Coyote hangs his hat, ladies hide their laundry and stash their pearls away. Coyote pleads our case with the moon and can be seen doing this after a few drinks every so often.

GREEN VALLEYS: In the Rain Forest, a bird is finding a new home. They have to move a lot because the trees keep getting cut down and then they pop up somewhere else. It's a good thing they don't have much stuff to pack.

THE HAPPY LOSER: On an Island you decide it would be nice to have a million dollars. You don't know where you'll put a million dollars exactly because you don't have any pockets. It would be nice however.

THE OAK: In Ireland you sit down and lean up against an ancient oak. He tells you of his life, the rain that falls on him and the birds who land their tiny feet on his branches. He has seen the world and passers by for so long it makes you know how young and how small you are.

HUG ME: Back at school you are standing in the hall. You are waiting for a showdown. But you just hug instead. It's much more fun.

THIS TOWN: You are back on the road, on main street, in your town, walking. You have a hole in your sock which makes for an interesting dance.

GLAD FOR THE END OF THE DAY: And finally, you are Glad, as you are tired and it is almost a new day.

THE END

A Must Have
This is a beautiful, beautiful CD. I think the song "Our Planet" is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. The harmonies and melodies on all the songs, the way the two of them sing so beautifully together...I'm telling you, this is a Must Have.

The harmonies are an exquisite blend.
My copy of UH OH MOON arrived in the mail on Wednesday. I had planned to listen to a cut or two on Thursday morning as a treat, then hear the rest after I got home that evening. I fired up the CD player, heard the first song, and ended up listening to the entire thing with my jaw dropped. I was late for work but it was worth it. The harmonies are an exquisite blend. “Coyote” is my favorite of the moment but I suspect the entire work will be my favorite.

My three year old niece and I both love this CD
My three-year-old niece and I both love this CD. It's entertaining and lovely. Cooper and Bounds have great voices. Grace (my niece) and I love to sing along to Coyote. Finally there's a CD that's as much fun for me as it is for a child.

Recent Study Confirms: UH OH MOON Improves Mood! According to research conducted on a single test subject, melancholics can improve their mood by listening to UH OH MOON once a day. Researchers saw improvement even under difficult conditions (January in New England - though today it's been sunny
and in the 50s, and we had a thunderstorm 2 days ago).

Mesmerizing, intelligent, enchanting.
This musice is mesmerizing. Cooper & Bounds strike a perfect blend, creating intelligent, sophisticated lyrics that are also magical & enchanting for kids. My son & I sing "Uh Oh Moon" together at the top of our lungs. I even hear Gabriel singing these songs in the bathtub. A perfect gift for anybody you love. It's like giving them a little slice of heaven.
