Songs for Shirley on CD

-As most of you know, I've been a songwriter for a long, long time. Up until last year, I'd written exclusively for an adult audience. Here is the story of my foray into writing music for children & their families. Thanks, bradley In the fall of 2007, I decided to write a few songs for my niece Shirley's 2nd birthday. I had written many songs, to this point, but had never attempted to write songs for children, so I wasn't sure how I would fair. I finished 3 songs, before her birthday arrived, & I presented her a CD of guitar/vocal recordings of the songs. Shirley's (& her parents) reaction was positive enough that I decided to write another batch of songs. By christmas I had finished 5 more songs. I made guitar/vocal recordings of the 5 new songs in addition to 2 favorites from my own childhood (a long, long time ago). Throughout 2008, encouraged by Shirley's parents & all four of her grandparents, I added more instrumentation to each track. I played most of the instruments myself, but recruited my twin brother Brandon (Shirley's father) to play banjo on several of the songs. I then begged the talented Shannon Bowers to sing with me on 'There's a Hole in the Bucket' (another childhood favorite) & the album was complete. Enjoy! Note to buyers: The 1st run of duplication for this album was a short run done through Discmakers. On short run duplications, Discmakers uses CD-r's. I only mention this because some consumers prefer to be told upfront when they are purchasing a CD-r. I assure you that the quality is top-notch. The recording, mixing, & mastering are all very high quality, & the packaging, presented in a thin jewel case, is beautiful. Thank you, bradley.
