ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Children's music artist Alan Seeley continues to carve a unique niche in the genre.

Rather than adding to the abundance of simple songs that currently populate the field, Alan Seeley strives to raise children's music to an art form.

Knowing that kids today are sophisticated and are exposed to computers, the internet and television, Alan asks "Why not challenge and entertain kids with quality songs and lyrics?" Although fond of children's artists such as Raffi, Tom Chapin and Fink & Marxer, Alan has turned to adult music artists to help him create something new for kids.

He has used the songwriting styles of classic artists such as Lennon & McCartney, Smokey Robinson, Bob Marley and Joni Mitchell to break out of the formulaic writing patterns commonly found in kids' music.

Alan has also been influenced by Hip Hop artists and often injects a blend of spoken and sung styles into his material.

The success of these efforts is evident in Alan's new CD, Tales In Tune.

With contagiously hummable tunes, witty lyrics and state-of-the-art arrangements, the songs tell stories about rapping rabbits, sluggish sloths, pizza ghouls, dizzy chickens and a variety of other creatures.

For example, "All in a Line" functions as a highly entertaining counting song as six baby chicks one by one fall out of line en route to the watering hole.

The song "Detour" uses vignettes of truck drivers, mountain climbers, river rafters and astronauts to deliver a message about the value of perseverance and resourcefulness.

In "On Slow Groove" a sloth who drinks coffee to near-calamitous results learns from his sister that it's OK to move at your own speed.

In "Try Try Try" a determined quail ignores ridicule from his peers and learns how to fly.

A gifted performer, Alan lives in New York City and frequently entertains young audiences in the metropolitan New York area.
