I had a blast talking to Danny and Sarah from The Not-Its! My family has been listening to their music ever since we desperately needed songs about taking a bath or helicopters. The Not-Its had us covered.
We talked about the formation of the band as well as their brand new record ‘Ready or Not’. We also touched on why the Pacific Northwest is such a hot spot for kindie acts. Stay tuned all the way until the end of the show to hear their new song ‘The Battle of Curriculum Night’.
Environmental issues are at the forefront of a lot of parents list of concerns. Martin and the Green Guitar is making music for families that will educate us on what we can do to lessen our environmental impact. Martin and I had a great talk, I learned a lot. Especially about the impact that plastic straws are having on our oceans. Stay tuned all the way to the end to hear Martin’s song ‘Where Does Garbage Go’ from his new album ‘We Are All Connected’.
Prepare yourself for some sweet and soulful sounds. Evan and Vanessa join me to talk all about their new album ‘In Our World There Are No Strangers’. This was a great talk and you’ll want to hear a very beautiful and emotional (in a good way) story from Evan about how they believe in and are inspired by the those in their lives. Be sure to listen all the way until the end to hear the song ‘Sun Sun Sun’. It’s a beauty.
