Creative Projects I'm Currently Excited About
Pat Your Belly Like a Hippo (July 2020)
I have another batch of 3 wild songs that I created, performed, and produced that captures the essence of Hendrix's experience from 12-18 months.
It has been a lot of fun creating goofy music for toddlers that integrates my own musical tastes.
After the birth of my totally awesome son, Hendrix, I was inspired to write & produce music for and about babies & toddlers that deliberately stands out from traditional "baby/kids music" - music that draws upon the true perspective, feelings, and experiences of the baby/toddler (as well as the parents) that is also catchy, singable, and fun for both baby and parent.
I drew upon my decades of guitar playing, my eclectic music experience, and my influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix, Hip Hop, Pop, Funk, Jazz, and Blues to create The Hendrix Experience: Year One, an album for and about my son. This was released on December 29th, 2019 (his 1st birthday). Check it out here.
*All music has been tested and approved by my son. Guaranteed to satisfy any baby or toddler with good taste in music.
