Album Notes
He comes from a long line of conductors, composers, players and singers.
That Joey Farber is following in his talented family's footsteps, co-writing and singing the six original songs on his debut CD, is hardly a surprise.  
Except that Joey is eight years old. 
The topics - animals, trains, distant planets etc. will appeal to kids, but the songs, arrangements and production values are top notch and will appeal to all ages, even grown-ups!
The players on the CD are some of New York's finest free-lance musicians, including Peter Calo (Carly Simon), Mark Shulman (Jewel, Suzanne Vega, Chris Botti) and Larry Eagle (Bruce Springsteen). Playing keyboards on "The Early Years" is his father and co-writer, Seth Farber, pianist/conductor for the Broadway musical "Hairspray" and music director for blues legend Odetta. Mother Liz Queler, whose album "No Small Wonder" is a favorite in singer/songwriter circles, provides backing vocals. Both Farber and Queler are also members of the Little Band That Could, led by children's musician Brady Rymer.

charming, amusing lyrics by music pros--a 7-yr.-old and his dad
These delightful songs sung by 7-yr.-old boy soprano Joey Farber—and composed by Joey and his dad, Seth Farber, superb jazz pianist—is a huge pleasure. The background vocals and wide range of instruments, along with the charming, amusing lyrics make this CD a must-have for a wide kid audience and for a sophisticated adult music audience as well. Joey plays guitar like a seasoned pro, but on this CD his instrument is the West African djembe.


Good musicianship, but concerned..
There is no doubt that this little boy is talented, but there are many talented children out there.. The danger in parent's doing a CD like this with their child, is they run the risk of hearing that not everyone feels the same way about their kid that they do..There is something " divaesque" about the whole CD..the musicians are outstanding however, and a few of the songs are good. I would bet money that the making and promotion of this CD, caused this child unwanted and unnessary anxiety.
