SANTA BARBARA CA (PRWEB) November 2, 2005
Sandman Records announces the launch of Turn Up The Music!, a rockin’ addition to its award-winning series of children’s CDs and a delightful musical treat for children ages 4-9. Featuring twelve original songs by singer-songwriter Lanny Sherwin, President of Sandman Records (http://www.sandmanrecords.net), Turn Up The Music! encompasses a full musical spectrum, from Motown and Latin to Doo-Wop and Country Rock. Even better, it has already won an iParenting Media Award for excellence and sells for the low price of $9.98.
Turn Up The Music! is designed for toe tapping fun as well as dancing with friends and family, but also delivers many positive messages for children. “The lyrics are a combination of silly and serious while teaching children about life fundamentals,” says Lanny Sherwin. “Some of the songs address acceptance and tolerance, doing our best, respect for nature and animals and more…but it is not preachy.” He adds, “I try never to write ‘down’ to kids. They are much more sophisticated about music than people realize. I just try to write for the whole family—kids, parents, and grandparents. Also, there is plenty of humor in Turn Up The Music!, something we all need more of in today’s world.”
Turn Up The Music! is the third children’s music CD from Sandman Records and Lanny Sherwin. The first two CDs, Dream With Me Tonight—Lullabies For All Ages and Dream With Me Tonight, Volume 2—A Father’s Lullabies, were written for ages newborn to 5. They have been an instant success with family’s nationwide garnering 14 prestigious industry awards including Parent’s Choice Award, NAPPA Gold Award, Creative Child Magazine’s Seal of Excellence and Children’s Music Web Best Toddler CD. Designed to support the whimsical Sandman motto, “Don’t Drive Parents Crazy”, both sets of lullabies were composed by Lanny Sherwin as an expression of his love for his son Alec, and as an alternative to traditional music and lullabies.
Geared towards an older demographic, Turn Up The Music! pumps up the volume and the merriment with unique and insightful songs like “The Monster Masher”, “Lima Beans & Liver”, “Don’t Squash That Bug!”, and “I’m Dancing”. It is available nationwide in retail stores including Borders and the Sandman Records website. For more information, visit http://www.sandmanrecords.net or call 805-565-5524.
