I am a parent of two children and a high school teacher. I play music as a hobby and started writing songs for my kids which has now evolved into this independent, homespun children's music CD. This is the second CD of children's music I have written and recorded and I am really proud to have some of the best musicians in the industry helping me out. For starters, lead guitarist David Steele, played guitar on several songs. His resume is very impressive.... he's toured and recorded with John Prine, Steve Earle and Gary Allen to name a few. Then there's Mike Bub who was winner of International Bluegrass Music Association's, "Bass Player of the Year" award five times and who played with the Del McCoury Band for over a decade and has played with Vince Gill, The Tony Rice Unit and about every top name in country and bluegrass is playing on several tracks. He now plays with Ashley Monroe. Pinecastle recording artist, Kent Todd, is a member of the band, Blue Mafia, and is featured on the CD both singing harmony and playing fiddle. Frank Battaglia, Mark Bransfield, Danny Deckard, Brian Leaver, Greg Norman, Brady Stogdill, Cecil Stearns and John Stith are other accomplished musicians featured on the CD. Brian toured with Dale Lynn Bradley and plays banjo, mandolin, guitar and dobro on the CD as well as being the recording engineer and producer of most of it. This CD is even more special for me due to the fact that my children, Lindley (10) and Ruel (8) are singing with me on a song, "Sometimes you gotta do what you don't wanna do" and provide improvised dialogue on "Gotta Make it to the School Bus." Other songs include, Robert the Playground Bully (about a playground bully that learns an important lesson), Sunscreen (a cautionary tale about exposure to the sun), The Last Countdown (written from the Space Shutltle's perspective, it's a song about the Shuttle not wanting to retire and live out the rest of it's days in a museum). Silent Letter Blues (about those tricky silent letters like "g"nome), Oh Jonah (about no one believing where Jonah's been for the last three days when he tries to explain his absence), Changes (about dealing with loss), Grandma was a Roller Derby Queen (about a grandson discovering his grandma's secret past), Proper Nouns (a contemporary Schoolhouse Rock-type song about capitalization) and the follow-up song to Buzzard Meat, Literal Buzzard Meat, (where the tables turn on the scavenger who is slow to get out of the road.) I hope you take a chance on this CD. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Thank you! Sean Steele.
