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.

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!
The Green Orbs are starting the new year with new music!!! Check out our NEW VIDEO featuring our version of the classic children’s song “Old MacDonald Had a Farm”, sung by my beautiful daughters, and starring our little friend Pea. Enjoy!!
The last few weeks of summer and the first few weeks of school have been hectic, but I think I am finally ready to get back to The Green Orbs and all of the exciting things we have going on.
First, through all of the craziness of the last few weeks of summer, we wrote a song for a little girl turning one named Eliana. Her uncle wanted to give it to her for her birthday. I love writing personalized songs for people. It is so wonderfully fulfilling, knowing that we have hopefully created something that the recipient will treasure for their whole life.
Of course, our app “The Hams in the Deep Blue Sea” continues to be available on iTunes. We are hoping to have more reviews to post in the coming weeks and months.
We have an upcoming recording session that I am very excited about! In a past post, I mentioned that we were working on a song that got its start as a little ditty that Eddie had written along with my daughters. We have reworked that song and created what I think is an epic tale….and we have found someone to sing it who has an epic voice to go along with it! We had a rehearsal in NYC last month with this person, and Eddie and I could not stop smiling and laughing because it just sounded so great!! I can’t wait to be able to share this song when it is finished…and to hopefully produce a video to go along with it! Stay tuned for more details!
We have many other projects in vary stages of development and many ideas for new projects…..it is hard to find the time to work on all of them! We would like to create a monthly Orb Newsletter to keep all of our fans informed of our current projects. If you are interested, please add your email on the “Contact Us” page.
