New blog: The Pop! For Kids Project

How old do you need to be to enjoy good pop music? I would say not very old. How many annoying children's songs does it take to drive a parent crazy? I would say not very many. As a parent, I've been surprised by how very little enjoyable music I can find made for kids. Simple, fun, catchy pop tunes for children seem to be extremely rare and hard to track down.

I think children deserve to have access to pretty music as much as grown-ups do. Since for most of us music is such an important part of our lifes, how amazing would it be to be able to actually enjoy good pop music together with a child? This is why I started The Pop! For Kids Project.

Pop! #1 by Drew Smith from The Bicycles was posted today.

Farewell, Slow Down Tallahassee!

Sadly, Slow Down Tallahassee are now more, but their music is very much alive. Their last album 'Curly Cuh' is available for pre-order at Thee SPC, and a free download single is available on the label as well.

We'll miss you, SDT!
