Hi Everyone! Heather here. Wanted to check in and give a quick update on all things Orbs related. First, as you may have heard, we collaborated on a fun song called “Cornfield” with our friend Uncle Doxthat will be available soon on iTunes…..but while you are waiting, why not give a listen to tomorrow morning’s Radio Active Kids show, where we hear “Cornfield” will be played. Yes, the rumors are true….I am rapping on this song!!! Just call me MC Heather (ha-ha!!!). In all seriousness, we hope you like it!! It was really great to work on.
Secondly, we are furiously recording our 1st full length album!! Between running a piano studio (me), and working on a PhD (Eddie), this process has taken a little longer than expected, but IT IS HAPPENING!!!! No album title yet……it is seriously hard to decide on such an important symbol of the awesomeness that is this album. I cannot wait to share it with all of you!!!
Lastly, we also have a new batch of songs waiting in the wings for the YouTube Audio Library. We truly enjoy checking out all of the creative videos our songs are being used in. It is also pretty cool, I’ll have to admit, when your little nephew turns on a video, and there you are singing “Shoo Fly Shoo”.
We are so proud to announce that our song “The Hams in the Deep Blue Sea” is included in the wonderful new compilation album “Singing Through the Storm”.
With all of the news happening with the election, you may have forgotten that just a little over a month ago, Hurricane Matthew devastated Haiti. Sadly, hundreds were killed. Over 200,000 homes were destroyed. Many are without food and proper shelter…but, we can help!!!
Introducing “Singing Through the Storm”, a collection of 29 (!) songs from some of the coolest kid groups around, like Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band, Chibi Kodama, Sonshine and Broccoli, Sugar Free Allstars, and us!! This whole album can be yours for $12!! A bargain!! The best part— 100% of all profits will be sent to the HAITIAN PEOPLE’S SUPPORT PROJECT, and will directly go towards helping the Haitian people recover and rebuild.
Please click below, and download your copy today–great music for a great cause!!
Excited to share this great new song/video from Jumpin’ Jamie–“I Wanna Be Healthy”. We had the opportunity to meet Jamie back in April at KindieComm, and he asked us to be a part of the song, along with a whole bunch of other great Kindie artists and even The REAL Peter Tork (Official)from The Monkees, one of our favorite bands growing up!!!! It’s a catchy song with an important message, and a really fun video as well. We hope you enjoy!!
So excited to have been included in this week’s Radio Active Kids program down in Asheville, NC on Asheville FM! Give it a listen….with new music from Recess Monkey and Secret Agent 23 Skidoo,plus a trio of tunes from The Green Orbs, your kids will be dancing for days!
We are so excited that The Green Orb’s music can now be heard on Funky Kids Radio, broadcast out of Melbourne, Australia! Funky Kids Radio plays wonderful music for kids 24/7, and can either be streamed from the web (www.funkykidsradio.com.au) or their app for IOS and android. Tune in and take a listen….and you might catch one of our songs!!!
We are so excited to announce that The Green Orbs have been chosen to perform in the 2016 KindieComm Industry Showcase!!!!!! We cannot wait to share our music with other members of the Kindie music community. Thank you KindieComm for the invitation to perform!!!
It’s finally here!!! We have been working hard for months, and we are so excited to be able to share our new song and video “Mr. Mustache”, featuring the vocal talents of Joel Marsh Garland, of Orange Is The New Black. Joel also directed the video for us and it stars my children Abbie, Livvie, and Sophie, and the shadow puppet creations of Susan G. Young.
Mr. Beard and Mr. Mustache have been through a lot of stuff…but after 20 years of Mr. Mustache’s mischief, Mr. Beard has had enough! We hope you enjoy this silly tale!
