ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is the second album in the Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta series. It's got more of an easy-listening pop-feel and the 12 imaginative songs carry "engaging messages about the world" in which we live -- (USA Today review). Several songs have been licensed to other projects, including "My Best Friend" - Disney; "All the Way Around the World" to Debbie Miller's video, "Happy Reading" and many to major airlines. For families together, this album will motivates growing minds and bodies to have fun and to become the best that they can be.

REVIEWS:
USA TODAY LIFE by Robin DeRosa:
"The second in the Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta series, features original songs with simple messages about such things as learning (Read A Book), kindness toward others (No Way, Jose) and friendship (My Best Friend). Many tunes have a country feel, enhanced by Dines’ engaging voice, the fiddle and mandolin."

FAMILY FUN MAGAZINE by Moira McCormick:
"Katherine Dines’ specialty is easygoing acoustic pop songs aimed at motivating little minds and bodies. Her latest effort delivers on all accounts. There is the balmy “Carribean-laced “It’s Amazing What You Can Do With Your Brain,” for instance, which details the power of imagination, and the physically exhorative “Muscle and Bone,” which urges kids to “row...climb...shove... with all your might.” Dines’ gift for fanciful lyrical turns is evident in such tunes ad “Hey Sam,” concerning and imaginary friend who not only scares monsters out of the closet, but also eats unwanted turnip greens at dinner.”

NASHVILLE PARENT MAGAZINE by Susan Brooks Day:
If you haven’t heard of her, where have you been? Katherine Dines is in the forefront of the local children’s music scene here in Music City, but she’s also known and loved far beyond the realms of Tennessee, as well she should be. She’s kind. She’s unpretentious and she loves children. Maybe that’s why her Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta Boo-2 is so good!

There’s a fine balance to be found where children and education are concerned. Often, children’s performers, in the hopes that they can teach our children well, will pounce on a message or a theme and dish it out to children who, very quickly and instinctually, close their ears. Who wants to be told what they should or shouldn’t do all the time?

Dines’ music starts with the music. She has nice melodies which would stand alone whether or not there were lyrics, and so the words become and additional treat in that they serve to enhance the music and ever so gently try to educate.

In the first cut “It’s Amazing What You Can Do With Your Brain,” she doesn’t ask kids to think. Rather, she makes the idea appealing that you can think. Other subtle messages are found in “Read a Book” and “We Don’t Ever Have to Say Goodbye,” while pure fun, of note, can be found in “Itchy Itchy Owie Owie Boo Boo,” and “The Goobaws.”

COLORADO PARENT by S.V.:
"...these fun-loving songs are sure to please...Katherine Dines’ songs made us want to sing and dance along. My children’s favorite song was “Itchy Itchy Owie Owie Boo Boo,” a catchy song that kids can relate to easily (and had to be played again four times as soon as we listened the first time!). She makes use of a variety of instruments... and the songs are “creative, original, inspirational, interactive, positive, motivating, fun...” What more could we ask!"
