Quantcast

Last month, I took the girls to see Chicago's SCRIBBLEMONSTER perform for an impressive crowd of tots and up. The kids dug the show a lot, and today I've got some music to share from the SCRIBBLEMONSTER crew. Want to teach the "plight of the bumblebee" to the little ones? Well, "Shakin' Up the Pollen" does just that - and you can grab the song as a FREE DOWNLOAD, along with an activity sheet that teaches just what bees do to help flowers and our environment. Stream the song below, then hit the SCRIBBLEMONSTER website for the download!

Each Mother's Day, I post a similar message on THE ROCK FATHER and all of my social networks: "For All the Moms Who Rock, I Salute You." Yes, that play on the old AC/DC classic "For Those About to Rock" is something I stand behind, but this year, I have something very special for all of you to go with it - a Kindie Rock playlist from a group of true All-Stars, all of whom are allowing me to share their music with you as a FREE DOWNLOAD for the next week. Below the break, you'll find ten songs for Moms to share and enjoy with their kids - tracks from folks like Seattle's THE NOT-ITS!, the wonderful LUCKY DIAZ and THE FAMILY JAM BAND, THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS bassist DANNY WEINKAUF, and more...

STORY LAURIE always hits me with things that could easily be filed under both "Family Music" and "Gardening" here on THE ROCK FATHER, as the New York-based Kindie artist has a habit of combining the two. For today, though, I'll put this one in the music category, as she's serving up a FREE DOWNLOAD of her new song, "Who Grew My Soup?" It's all in celebration of Earth Day (April 22) and the upcoming Farm to Cafeteria Conference (April 16-18, Austin, TX) at which Laurie will be a featured presenter- working with conference-goers to write a song on-the-fly. Stream or Download the song below...

It's National Reading Month, and to celebrate, Kindie Rockers KEY WILDE & MR. CLARK are giving readers of THE ROCK FATHER a special treat - a FREE DOWNLOAD of their popular track, "Animal Alphabet." The song has already racked-up over 300,000 views on YouTube, and comes from the duo's fantastic 2013 album, PLEASED TO MEET YOU (available on Amazon and iTunes). You can stream and download the track via the Souncloud Widget below, but do it quick - because on March 25, 2014, this free download offer will be eaten by angry alligators and balancing bears!

About a year ago, ALEX MITNICK (the "Alex" from ALEX & THE KALEIDOSCOPE BAND) became a "Rock Father" himself, ushering in the birth of his son, Baby Miles. In celebration of his little one, Alex has written an entire album for him (and you!) called LOVE SONGS FOR MY BABY. Set for release this Father's Day (also the anniversary of this site), Alex is giving listeners an early taste with the release of the first single, "Feelin' Fine." Check out the beautiful video below, and keep reading for details on how you can help spread the music, and score a FREE DOWNLOAD for your own collection!

Where did 2013 go? People have long said that the years seem to pass faster as you get older, but 2013... this was something different. Never before has a year been as big a blur as this one. Maybe it's the fact that this is the year that Little Finley went mobile (started walking), creating a situation in which I'm chasing two kids around all day instead of just one. Perhaps its all the adventures we've been having, but honestly, I just don't know why it seems to have flown by so fast. So here we are, New Year's Eve... the last day of 2013, and we're standing on the cusp of 2014. Whatever you choose to do tonight, rock is needed, and thanks to my kindie punk rock friends, THE BOOGERS, you have a new track to add to your New Year's Eve playlist. Enjoy THE BOOGERS' rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" below, and download it if you'd like. Happy New Year!
