Uncle Wayne's love of the ocean shines on all twelve tracks of this original album. As an educator who has played music with children for over forty years, he knows how to pace and present songs that grab children's interest and stick in their minds. His accessible lyrics capture a wealth of information about the ocean. His vivid tunes about turtles, whales, coral reefs, monk seals and dolphins are jam-packed with biological facts. 'Walking on the Beach' and 'Pec Slap Boogie' engage kids in mimicking the actions of whales, crabs, birds and surfers. Fun ballads 'Fishy Fish' and 'Ghost Shark' provide whimsy and suspense. The opening and closing tracks, 'Aloha i Ke Kai (Love the Ocean)' and 'Everything Flows to the Ocean' punch home the role that people play in caring for the sea and it's creatures. Uncle Wayne migrated from Tallahassee, Florida to Kihei, Maui in 1993. He leapt into island life performing in local schools and childcare centers, where he was dubbed 'the Elvis of the preschool set.' Today Uncle Wayne is known throughout the state for his music and work with preschoolers. He has twice served as president of the Hawaii Association for the Education of Young Children, and works as director of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Children's Center on the island of Oahu. His favorite performance venue is the statewide network of public libraries, where he regularly donates performances. Uncle Wayne's first young fans are now grown young parents who are eagerly sharing his music with Hawaii's next generation.
