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.

I JUST PICKED UP MY HAMS IN THE DEEP BLUE SEA ON iTUNES!
Hi everybody – Larry Daley here… I’m so excited to see that Hams in the Deep Blue Sea is finally out! I always have a blast illustrating whatever The Green Orbs have up their sleeves and HAMS is too good to miss.
As a children’s Illustrator, one of the things you always hope for in reading a script is the possibility to invent something new. If there’s even one new character I can introduce in a story, I’m usually thrilled. But The Green Orbs go all out in their stories, introducing a paint bucket of inventive characters, spectacular destinations and a pure playfulness that makes it difficult not to want to create a dozen versions of the same adventure. I love the ocean and to draw fish is wonderful – but to draw swimming pigs mingling with Moo-maids, a Tallrus and Eelephants dancing to a bubbly tune – well, that’s just cool:)
Here’s a shot of Mr. Baaaass belting out an underwater tune (from line drawing to finished color)
We are so excited to present “The Hams in the Deep Blue Sea”, a stand alone iPad app built on the Mibblio platform. Mibblio produces musical book apps that allow children to read, listen and play along on a variety of instruments all at once. This is our third story/song published through Mibblio, but this marks the first time that one of our songs has been the focus of an individual app! We are very grateful to our friends Sammy and David over at Mibblio who have given us this opportunity.
“The Hams in the Deep Blue Sea” tells the story of The Hams, a family of pigs who spend the day swimming in the ocean, meeting a variety of unusual creatures. Believe us, this is no ordinary day at the beach!
We are thrilled to have worked for the third time with illustrator Larry Daley on this story. Once again he was able to translate our ideas brilliantly and bring the story to life! “The Hams in the Deep Blue Sea” is sung by New York rapper/performer MC Paul Barman. You may recognize his voice from our song “Always Bring Your Toothbrush When You Go To Outer Space”, available through the Mibblio app. We are happy to have worked with MC Paul again!
Hey Everyone!! Heather here. Summer is almost here!!! I’m so excited for my kids to be out of school and all of our activities to be finally winding down…..more time to spend creating cool stuff for kids with The Green Orbs! Eddie and I have great plans for this summer. First order of business…..a new website address!!! Our website can now be accessed using www.TheGreenOrbs.net! This is very exciting indeed because now we will be easier to find in the magical mystery world of the internet. Our goal for buying our new web address is for our name to come up first when you google The Green Orbs. Currently, if you were looking for us and typed our name in to Google, all you would find is information on ghost orbs. Um….not exactly cool stuff for kids. Just another step in our quest for maximum awesomeness. I am looking forward to attending KindieComm 2014 next week!!! It will be great to meet other people from the world of Kid’s Music and hear about all of the great things they are working on. I am so excited to talk to people about The Green Orbs and all of the cool stuff we are creating. It sounds like there are some great workshops to attend to learn all about the industry…..I can’t wait!! We even ordered new business cards just for the occasion! Of course, if you have been following along on our blog, you know that our new app “The Hams in the Deep Blue Sea” will be making its debut soon! I thought I would share another sneak peak at one of the creature our Ham family meets under the Sea……a Sea Horse!!
I’m sure from this picture and the picture of a Moo-Maid, you can already tell that the Hams meet some very interesting creatures!!!!Any ideas who else they might run into under the sea?????????? Happy Summer Solstice everyone!!!
