Album Notes
Latest News:

“Superior musicianship & rollicking vocals.”
– American Library Association’s Notable Children’s Recordings

"A myriad of styles, tremendous performances and downright singable lyrics.”
– John Wood,

"Great music with a mild rock feel, creative and inspired lyrics, fun for all ages. Every single track on this CD is a good one."
– Fran Grauman,

"Turn Up The Music!" just won its 9th music award: "A Cappella" just won the Children's Division in The Great American Song Contest ... as well as Parents' Choice, Dr. Toy, etc.

Why so many honors? Possibly because of the Sandman Records motto, "DON'T DRIVE PARENTS CRAZY!"

Songs from the CD have been played on Continental Airline's inflight kid's channel and have been selected for Fisher-Price's "FP3 Player" downloads, as well.

"Turn Up The Music!" is a rockin' addition to its award-winning series of children's CDs and an eclectic musical treat for children ages 4-9. Featuring 12 original songs by singer-songwriter Lanny Sherwin, President of Sandman Records (, "Turn Up The Music!" encompasses a full musical spectrum, from Motown and Latin to Doo-Wop and Country Rock.

"Turn Up The Music!" is designed for toe tapping fun, but also delivers many positive messages for children. "The lyrics are a combination of silly and serious while teaching children about life fundamentals," says Lanny Sherwin. "Some of the songs address acceptance and tolerance, doing our best, respect for nature and animals and more...but it is not preachy." He adds, "I try never to write 'down' to kids. They are much more sophisticated about music than people realize. I just try to write for the whole family-kids, parents, and grandparents. Also, there is plenty of humor in "Turn Up The Music!", something we all need more of in today's world.

"Turn Up The Music!" is the third children's music CD from Sandman Records and Lanny Sherwin. The first two CDs, "Dream With Me Tonight-Lullabies For All Ages" and "Dream With Me Tonight, Vol. 2 - A Father's Lullabies", were written for ages newborn to 5.

ABOUT SANDMAN RECORDS: Located in Santa Barbara, California, Sandman Records ( was launched by professional songwriter Lanny Sherwin in 2001 as a creative alternative to traditional children's lullabies and other music. Its unique series of children's CDs have garnered 18 industry awards to date and have become popular favorites with families and childcare professionals. A portion of Sandman Record's proceeds benefits numerous nonprofit organizations across the country.

hey lanny call me
hey Lanny. It's Tish. Call me. I am working on a project here in Naples called Tish and The All-Star Peanut Butter & Jellie Jamm. It's a Cd of original and old rearranged songs for kids. Proceeds benefit the Children For The Arts Foundation to help kids that are unable to afford private classes in the arts. It benefits after-school programs in the public schools as the school has no money for the arts. Imagine that! I saw Roger Williams the other day and told me that you had this cd out. Very cool stuff, Lanny. I can be reached at 239-571-3305.

Lanny Sherwin's songs are great on so MANY levels!
While searching for songs with depth and healthy, positive messages for ALL the children I work with, I came across Turn Up the Music. I popped right up out of my chair! It's perfect! AND Lanny has a wonderful voice!! Then I found MORE songs that were up the right alley. I emailed my friend immediately. Our search is over! I'm so gratful! This music is great for all children AND adults.
