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!!!
Hi Everyone! Here’s a short little behind-the-scenes video shot during the filming of “Mr. Mustache”. We loved working with the shadow puppets designed by Susan G. Young, though they were harder to manipulate than it seems! Also, listen for Joel Marsh Garland giving us direction from behind the curtain.
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!
Over the fall, we had the awesome opportunity to have Joel Marsh Garland sing a new song of ours called “Dear Mr. Mustache”. For those of you not familiar with Joel, he is an awesome actor who has appeared in a million tv shows and movies (ok, maybe not a million….but a lot!!). Most recently, Joel has been seen in the Netflix hit show Orange Is The New Black as the prison guard Officer Scott O’Neill and on Broadway in the revival of Of Mice and Men. Joel was the perfect choice to sing this song. His voice totally suits the character who is singing the song, a man by the name of Mr. Beard. (Yes, you read that correctly. “Dear Mr. Mustache” is about two characters named Mr. Mustache and Mr. Beard.)
This weekend, we will have the awesome opportunity to work with Joel again, as he directs the video for “Dear Mr. Mustache”. The video will be a mix of shadow puppetry and live action, starring my beautiful daughters who started the whole saga of Mr. Mustache and Mr. Beard during a fun afternoon with their uncle. Here’s a little sneak peak at one of our pre-production test photos:
I can’t wait to share this song and video with all of you!!!
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.
