At Night They Howl at the Moon: Environmental Songs for Kids

by Dana Lyons and John Seed

Recorded with Australia's John Seed at children's summer camps in the San Juan Islands of Washington state, "At Night They Howl at the Moon" has the infections energy of three hundred fired-up campers singing wildly; reminiscent of a children's Woodstock.

Album Notes


"Your performances, as always, were incredible: simultaneously entertaining, hilarious, and educational. I appreciate the way your music conveys important messages in a fun and lighthearted manner and I am positive that the kids will never forget your catchy songs. On behalf of Dr. Jane Goodall and the entire Jane Goodall Institute, I want to thank you for performing at the Roots & Shoots North American Youth Summit 2002." -Hans Cole, Deputy Director, Roots & Shoots-USA


Dana Lyons is the singer/songwriter best known for his dynamic performances and outrageous hit songs "Cows With Guns," "RV" and "Ride The Lawn." A global radio and web hit, "Cows With Guns" was #1 for the year on Dr. Demento, #2 on the Australian Country charts, #1 in Seattle and spent six months on the Irish Top 40.

Bringing together a mix of comedy, ballads and love songs, Dana's sharp wit and beautiful voice have him performing at concert halls, festivals, conventions, fundraisers and universities across the US and around the world. Dana's music style includes a bit of everything; his biggest radio hit, "Cows With Guns," receives crossover radio play on country, rock, alternative, community, college and oldies radio stations worldwide. He has seven releases to date, including his latest, "Ride the Lawn" (spring, 2004).

Dana has toured in 46 of the 50 American states, around the East Coast of Australia and across Ireland, England, New Zealand, Kazahkstan and Siberia. His policy of "I'll play anywhere once" has landed Dana gigs on a tropical island in the Great Barrier reef of Australia, the Harley Davidson Festival in Sturgis, South Dakota, an Irish Pub in Beijing and the Hanford Nuclear Waste Dump in his home state of Washington.

Two of Dana's songs have been made into award-winning illustrated books: Cows With Guns, published by Penguin (winner of the Bullitzer Prize), and The Tree, published by Illumination Arts. The Tree was endorsed by Dr. Jane Goodall, has forwards by Pete Seeger and Julia Butterfly Hill and has won numerous awards.

Dana's comedy stretches back to 1986 when thirteen co-sponsors from the Washington State Legislature introduced a bill to make his song "Our State is a Dumpsite" the official Washington State Song. Sadly, the bill was struck down in the rules committee, but later the Legislature placed "Our State is a Dumpsite" in Washington State's official centennial songbook, Washington's Songs and Lore, recognizing it as one of the 75 most important songs in Washington State history.

"Dumpsite" also appeared in the soundtrack to Robert Redford's movie documentary The WIPP Trail. His songs have also appeared in other movie and television documentaries, including "Drop of Water" in the Canadian film documentary No Surrender and "June is a Comin'" in the TV documentary Fishing Families.

Dana's songs have been re-recorded by many artists, but perhaps his highest honor as a songwriter came when Pete Seeger called him to get the music for Dana's song "I am an Animal." Dana has shared the stage with many notable performers including Stephen Stills, River Phoenix, Nickel Creek, Country Joe McDonald, Utah Phillips & John Trudell.

Dana was born in Kingston, New York. He graduated from Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania. He lives in a nice garage in Bellingham, Washington, with his cat Oliver. His astrological sign is Taurus.



to write a review


howl at the moon
my daughter and I grew up on this album. We listened to the cassette tape until the words wore off. I was over the moon to track down the CD. I am a teacher and your songs breathe life, fun and meaning into my junior Geography classes. Much love to you.


I bought the CD for the tracks:

Mosquito Party
Have to Have a Habitat
Expanding Universe

so I could put a power point to them while having my students sing along. These songs fit wonderfully into my science curriculum!
