Essence Goldman, an award-winning singer-songwriter, will release her first-ever children's album on the label myKaZoo Music through Universal Music Enterprises on January 29.
A Dog Named Moo and His Friend Roo is an infectious collection of originals and familiar favorites for kids and kids-at-heart. The album began as a gift of love for her son, Rhys, who has been enjoying these lighthearted, humorous tunes since he was born. Instant classics, these ukulele-, guitar- and banjo-laced gems include "T REXXXXX!," "Gotta Wear Clothes," "Everybody Has a Butt," "Rocks 'n Sand," and "Comin' to Getcha." essence offers clever and witty songs that promise to entertain as well as educate the little ones and won't make parents want to jump out the window.
A Dog Named Moo and His Friend Roo was produced in a grass-roots way: essence's first album funded solely on the support of her fans on Kickstarter. Most songs were co-written by Jeffrey Pease with illustrations by Alex Conn. The banjo, ukulele, guitars, upright bass and drums were played by instrumentalist extraordinaire Daniel Berkman, who also served as her producer. essence credits her son, Rhys, as her ultimate inspiration.
In addition to the A Dog Named Moo...CD, she is releasing T REXXXXX! as a book: "Everybody Has a Butt” as a smart phone app; and three animated videos (“T REXXXXX!” in claymation, “Everybody Has a Butt”' and “Yum Yum."
