Creative Project I'm Currently Excited About
The Hendrix Experience: Year One
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.
The Hendrix Experience: 18 Months
I have another batch of 5 wild songs cooking up for my next release due out sometime around Hendrix's 18-month milestone that captures the essence of his experience from 12-18 months.
It has been a lot of fun creating goofy music for toddlers that integrates my own musical tastes. Stay tuned and check back in the future for more information and links to music, especially if you are a parent.
*All music has been tested and approved by my son. Guaranteed to satisfy any baby or toddler with good taste in music.
