Year three, woo hoo! So excited to be back. This year is all about the kids music. I'm on the brink of recording my first album of music for kids and I'm sure this will get me back in the game.

I love to write silly songs for kids ages 2 to 8, and I perform live monthly with a puppet named Boink. Give me a ukulele and I'll regale you with a song about boogers or made up superheros.

Sadly, due to the tragic death of my 8 year old nephew, I have gotten a really late start this year. I have twenty song ideas written down to start working through, so now I just have to get going. Be back soon.

Nope. Two songs this year. Maybe three if I feel like I have time. Next year, seriously. I'm gonna bring it.

    Consider arm slightly twisted... but not too much, you still need to play that uke.

  • @oneslowtyper  Feb 23

    Nope, I refuse to accept that you're stopping at 2 songs, especially when we have a 48 hour long super-skirmish that begins RIGHT NOW!!
    ...but you're forgiven if two is all you can do.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your nephew, Alison. Wishing you well, and hoping your family is able to find some peace.

    Hi! That's awesome that you have a puppet in your act! At some point I'd like to put out a songbook of kid's music -- ideally some of which would have hand-gestures. I've got a few keepers that my own kids regularly ask for.

  • @kristi  Jan 26

  • @andygetch  Jan 24

    Hey @acromie, looking forward to hearing your songs! I work at several childrenโ€™s festivals every summer here in the uk, and love music with a kid-centred focus!

  • @charliecheney  Jan 20

    Oh, and good luck to you! So cool you're making a kids album.

  • @charliecheney  Jan 20

    Excited to hear your kids songs. I write whatever comes to mind but I have been known to write a kids song in the past, perhaps you'll be that bit of spark that inspires me to try again this year.

  • @mctown Jan 20

    Cool. I am a lyric person and retired teacher. Maybe I could come up with a lyric idea for a song or two. Where can I hear what you've done so get a better idea. David
