“SONGS TO SING AT CHILDREN” – The Album!

After only EIGHT years of recording kid-friendly-but-not-required comedy music, I’ve finally completed the album. I hope you enjoy it and share with people! If there’s a kid nearby, please sit them in front of it (or behind it, if that’s more their speed) and enjoy their being occupied for a solid 35 minutes. That’s my promise to you: if you put this album on, then all things being equal, it will stay on for 35 minutes. Guaranteed.

Please enjoy “Songs to Sing at Children”! (credits below)
