Latest News from under our Umbrella of Music!
Ed has a brand new piano single release coming soon- The Sound of Farewell. It's beautiful🙂 You heard it here first!
We have our very first in-person children's performance in over 2 years because of you-know-what, on June 11th, at the Verona Public Library, 1PM in New Jersey:) Promotional flyer from the Library Website above. We're excited! Actual live children and caregivers to share the music with!!!
Make a Happy Face is selling!!! It's already in public library circulation in Queens, NY, Long Island, Westchester and starting to be purchased in some libraries in New Jersey. I just received my first check for those sales a few days ago- Very exciting! I will keep calling libraries to promote this and our other children's CD, because I truly believe young children will love it and learn from it! And by the way, we've been to the recording studio, and we're in progress with Children's Album number three:) We'll keep you posted. Also just recorded- our latest song for Mother's day:)
And...just in- go to our Children's Page to check out our latest animation- Storyland!
Our new We're Twins animation is up on the Children's Page. We think it's super-cute:) We have songs airing on the Valentine's Themed Podcast of the Women of Substance Radio all through February:)
I wrote a brand-new Disheveled Snowman Memories song to go with part 2 of the book by Carleen Thissen. It will be featured in December on two Radio Podcast shows! The Holiday Themed Women of Substance Podcast Series, featuring a total of 7 of our songs- and also on the Radio-Active Kids Saturday Morning online podcast for kids.
My brand new fun and educational Make a Happy Face CD is released, under new distribution, and available online! The public libraries are starting to order them for their children's rooms, and the CD has already received many 5-star reviews! It's here in the Store for purchase- get 1 (or more, I will discount them,) for the holidays. That special little child will thank you:)
Our songs Missing You at Christmas and Here's To The Night made the SEMI-FINALS in the UK Songwriting Contest!
Exciting things are happening, hard to keep up. But I'm gonna try:)
To start with- physical copies of our 'Make a Happy Face' album are in the works- you heard it here first! I created a beautiful 3-page graphic arts design for our second children's CD. Very proud of it. So, if you're the kind of person who needs to hold a product in your hand, to give to a small child, or you just can't deal with today's technology...this will be perfect for you. As soon as they are delivered to me, I will put them up for sale in the Store. Meanwhile, the digital copies are there if you can't wait. Or get them both:) First 10 physical copies sold get 20% off the album price. AND...I will personally sign it and write a short message to you or your child(ren) before I send it to you!
5 of our "grownup songs' were selected for 'Music With a Conscience,' a Women of Substance podcast series confronting many important issues today. The schedule is up under SHOWS. Check it out. The first show is August 30th:)
Whoo-hoo! I just pressed "Submit for Distribution" on my new children's CD! It's super exciting! Make a Happy Face, the album, will be available for pre-sale on July 21st, and the actual release date is July 31st. It includes the 2 new singles, plus a bunch of other really great songs:) The songs were just this past Saturday featured on Radio Active Kids. You can still hear the show, even if you missed it Live. Go to Radio Active Kids online: https://www.ashevillefm.org/show/radio-active-kids/
