Happy Earth Day! We are excited to be celebrating with a beautiful, sunny day at home in Vancouver, BC. While we do believe that every day should be ‘earth day’, having the official date fall on Good Friday this year makes it even easier to plan some special activities with the family. Maybe you’re involved in a neighbourhood clean-up, a community tree-planting event or are simply enjoying some time in the great outdoors? Please leave a comment sharing how your are spending Earth Day with your family – we’d love to hear from you!
We are thrilled to have a new soundtrack for our Earth Day celebrations this year. Connecting the Dots – our new album – arrived yesterday! We are so happy with the final product, and as with our first three albums, we have packaged the CD in an eco-friendly fashion including recycled paper materials, a cornstarch disc tray and vegetable-based inks.
Connecting the Dots features 14 original songs aimed at inspiring kids to observe, explore and CONNECT with the world around them. The stories and ideas shared in each song show that connections exist between different things – from how sharing a smile is an easy way to brighten someone’s day, to what makes a tree a perfect home for a silly squirrel, to simply recognizing that we each have our own special ‘beat’ that makes us all unique.
In celebration of Earth Day we wanted to share a few ‘sneak preview’ songs from the album. Below is the title track – Connecting the Dots. You can also find 4 more songs featured on the music player at www.bobsandlolo.com/music. We can’t wait to hear what you think!Bobs & LoLo – Connecting The Dots, Album: (2011)
Pre-orders for the new album are now available on our website and through the new Store on our Facebook page. The CDs will be released into retail stores on May 17, and pre-orders will be shipped just prior. We are extra excited to announce that we have created some new B&L t-shirts…yay! It has been a couple years since our last batch! These are only available online in special bundle packages with the new album along with an autographed photo for your little superfan!
We are hosting a few CD Release Family Concerts in the upcoming weeks although these are all taking place somewhat close to home given the anticipated June arrival of Baby LoLo. Special advance copies of the new album will be available for purchase at the live events!
