Tell us about your music: We make children's music for the whole family to enjoy and hope our lyrics inspire family conversations about keeping our earth green. We often focus on ecological topics like home gardening, farmer's markets, composting, ladybugs and earthworms, and even dinosaurs.
Tell us about your song (e.g., any unique instruments used, the origins of the lyrics, what inspired you, etc.): “Compost” is our first song that's kind of bluesy! We usually do folk and folk-rock songs, but we thought it would be fun to try and emulate classic bluesman John Lee Hooker. The lyrics describe how to compost even in a small space, and depict the role of microorganisms in turning table scraps and leaves into rich soil. Lead vocals are by Rob Waller (of the band I See Hawks In L.A. All four Hawks are on the song).
What I hope children, teachers, and families get from this song: Learning how to compost! Save those kitchen scraps!
