ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For years my daughter has been telling me that I should record a family/children\'s album. She remembers all the songs I sang to her when she was small and how much joy it brought to her and her brother. She relates me to the \"Pied Piper\" when I sing to children. They seem to be drawn to my music and are mesmerized as I entertain them and their parents.

I was in the process of releasing my last album, \"Legacy\", when she said, \"Dad, when are you going to record that family album?\" I told her I don\'t have enough ideas for an entire album and she replied, \"But I do!\" Being a kindergarten teacher with a vivid imagination has allowed her to see things \"Through A Child\'s Eyes\". So I said to her, \"send me some concept lyrics and we\'ll take it from there.

While I was nearing completion of \"Legacy\", she emailed me her first idea.
I was blown away! The Idea became, \"The Magic Room\". My daughter had acquired my gift for writing. I quickly produced \"The Magic Room\" and included it, as a bonus track, on my album \"Legacy\". The response was overwhelming!
I soon realized that it\'s been at least 30 years since music like this has been produced.

After that, my daughter started sending me more concept lyrics. Once I received them, I would rearrange, change or add words so they would fit melodically. I then wrote the music, did the arrangements and \"Voila!\"
\"Through A Child\'s Eyes\" was born.

In a world that seems to need a \"hug\", this album is a return to a simpler place and time. The music connects with parents, grandparents and children alike.
The feedback I have received says influences are John Denver, Roger Miller, Burl Ives, Simon & Garfunkel, Peter, Paul & Mary.

We purposely kept the music simple, not \"over produced\".

If you truly enjoy original, well written and produced music, with lyrics that will inspire and make you feel good again, then this CD is for you.

It\'s \"Americana\". It\'s \"Folk\". It\'s \"Country\". It\'s all around good family fun!
