I'm really excited to tell you that my children's music is for sale on iTunes! Yup, my little album that I recorded in my house is now available at the same place where you find U2 and Hannah Montana.
Except my stuff is funnier. And I dress better than Hannah Montana.

I know that many of you own my children's CD "A Little Cow Music", which features such strange and silly songs as My Mommy's A Pirate and Am I In Trouble? but now you can join our country's digitized youth culture and download my stuff to play on your iPod or burn CD's.
By doing this you can help me achieve worldwide mega-fame and when I'm jet setting back and forth across the globe performing in child-filled concert halls with Raffi and The Wiggles as my warm-up act, I promise I won't forget your magnanimous friendship when you bought my first tracks on iTunes.
You can download individual tracks or the whole album, or you can 'gift' it to someone else. I've added/changed a couple of new songs too, so if you already own the album you can download All Came Tumblin' Down and The Weather Song, which are new.
Thanks so much! I love you!

I wrote, performed, and recorded all these songs in my home studio. My two young sons inspire me and provide lots of material! I also get to use them as guinea pigs to test out new songs. These highly sophisticated critics of children's music tell me frankly what works and what doesn't. So you know you're getting pre-approved stuff!
"...I was thinking it was you who introduced us to his WONDERFUL Cd that I have played literally hundreds of times in the past couple months. My daycare kids just love it - especially I Like to Jump - Which I do believe is the all time "most played" song in my 10 years of running this daycare. The kids all know it by heart and if they aren't all singing along the whole way through - they certainly are when it gets to the part of "i like to jump in my UNDERWEAR!" Ooh that always cracks them up.
Anyway, I just wanted you to spread the word to him that his voice is heard in our house on a daily basis, and ask you to PLEASE let us know if he has any other CDs out since that one, cuz we're all over it if there is. -And not that I don't enjoy this CD - but something different would be really nice about now!
After finding out I have another CD:
I listened to some of his new songs off his website. They're great and I'll definitely be placing an order - and sure you can forward my comments to him. Kameryn asked me to tell you to tell him that her favorite part is when they say "I Like to jump on my BROTHER'S HEAD! -don't really do that okay?" - and the older girls love the song that begins (and ends) - "Why did my Hamburger, roll under the couch. dun dun." They can't wait to hear his new songs! Thanks!
