Latest News from under our Umbrella of Music!
GO TO OUR VIDEOS PAGE to check out Ed's latest 'WILD RIVER' piano video! The music is gorgeous and powerful- No More Hate Crimes!!! The video footage and cinematography by Joe Orecchio is outstanding!
We will be featured on five Music With a Conscience Themed Shows, that run from September 11th- October 28th! Check our SHOWS page for dates:)
Also this month, Ed and I will be remotely attending the Children's Network Conference. We will be participating in the Round Robin, sort of an Open Mic, sharing one of our songs. Last month Ed (and I as well) were interviewed by the prestigious Kathy Parsons, of Mainly Piano. We were fortunate enough to do a house concert in her lovely home in Florence, Oregon, 5 years ago. If you would like to check out the interview, copy this link into your Google Search and you will have it:) You'll likely find out a bunch of new information about us!
Ed's new piano single release already has a fantastic review!- (To see the review for "The Sound of Farewell," check Reviews:)
We have 4 new Children's library gigs in August- so if you're in Queens and you want some free musical entertainment for the little ones, come on by. (Check out our Shows page for details:)
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!!!
Ed has a brand-new piano single coming out soon- The Sound of Farewell. It's beautiful:) You heard it here first!
And it just arrived- on June 30th!
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!
