Brent Holmes is one of the best selling children's recording artists in the United States. This CD, which is being released in digital format only, is the eighteenth CD he has released on the Fun Tunes for Kids record label. All the songs on this CD teach multiples in the most fun way possible. The songs feature a wide variety of animals and instruments. There's everything from folk instruments to horns to Hawaiian ukuleles and slide guitars.
The songs are all catchy and very singable. They're also very imaginative. In one song a horse is walking in to a birthday party and on the next a moose is in a treehouse, eating cookies and dancing around a cookie jar. The CD is also very well produced so it is pleasing to the ears of all ages.
All of Brent's children's CDs were produced by Emmy nominee Dave Hoffner. The list of studio musicians that helped with the recording of the CDs reads like a "Who's Who" of the best musicians in the country. They include Richard Bennett (guitars, ukuleles, lap steel), Mark Casstevens (banjo, harmonica, guitar), Glen Worf (bass), Jeff Taylor (accordion), Ron Sorbo (pan drum) Hank Singer (fiddle).
Brent first released Cow Tunes for Kids in 1996 and started selling them out of the back of his van in small towns in Vermont. The next year he released Moose Tunes for Kids and traveled from Maine to Alaska selling them wherever moose were found. The third CD was Bear Tunes for Kids and the fourth was Sea Tunes for Kids. Eventually Brent started releasing DVDs (music videos) by the same titles, using the music from the CDs. Known for providing extremely high quality children's music, Fun Tunes for Kids has been one of the most successful children's labels in the country.
