Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) September 6, 2009
Lanny Sherwin's motto is: "Don't Drive Parents Crazy!" Perhaps that explains why he has just won his 36th children's music award. Disney's iParenting Media has awarded Sherwin, a children's singer-songwriter, the "Outstanding Products of 2009" Award for his new "Meltdown" CD.
"Meltdown", for 4 - 12 year olds, is the all-original, all-groovy, positive, fun, and thought-provoking addition to Sandman's award-winning series of children's CDs. Featuring 12 songs by Sherwin, President of Sandman Records (http://www.sandmanrecords.com) "Meltdown" goes from rock to pop to Caribbean to R&B … even an a cappella tune with Lanny singing eight parts!
"Meltdown" has clever lyrics, catchy melodies, and is designed for slightly goofy preadolescent fun. But the new CD also delivers many positive messages for children. Lanny says, "I'm really pleased with iParenting's recognition of 'Meltdown'. They're committed to helping parents make informed decisions as they choose products for their families, and I appreciate being included in their recommendations."
"Meltdown" is full of Sherwin's unique take on the everyday experiences in a child's life. These include airport boredom, science class, expressing feelings, doing your best, embracing creativity, and much more.
"Meltdown" is the 5th children's music CD from Sandman Records and Lanny Sherwin. His other best-selling CDs are: "Dream With Me Tonight--Lullabies For All Ages"; "Dream With Me Tonight, Volume 2--A Father's Lullabies"; "Turn Up The Music!; and "I Like Being Me". All told, Lanny's songs have won over 35 music awards.
Why so many? Sherwin says "I think the phrase 'Don't Drive Parents Crazy' really sums it up. As a songwriter and a parent, I'm aware of what parents have to go through in listening to their children's music. It can be painful. I just try and write in styles of music that I love - The Beatles, Jackson Browne, the Eagles, Jimmy Buffett. That's what I grew up with, and I think it's pretty timeless music."
"Meltdown" is available nationwide in retail stores including Barnes & Noble, Borders, and wherever music is sold. It's also available online at Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby, Kidzmusic, and the Sandman Records website. For more information, visit http://www.SandmanRecords.com or call 805-565-5524. A portion of Sandman Record's proceeds benefits numerous nonprofits, preschools, hospitals and children's fundraisers nationwide.
