You might know him as the bassist for Seattle’s GRAMMY-nominated Recess Monkey, or perhaps as the host of “Live From the Monkey House” on SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live. Now, Jack Forman is stepping out on his own with “Songs from the Monkey House,” his first-ever solo album, available as an Amazon Original on September 29, 2017. Featuring a dozen songs that families will love (there’s one that Star Wars fans are really gonna dig), today THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine is hosting the world premiere of the lead-off track, “Dog Park” – a song written and performed from the perspective of a canine. Crank it up!
About the Album: Jack likes to say that he is “at least 75 percent coffee,” and his high-energy hijinks are on display with these 12 new original songs. From “Watermelon” to “Yodeling Yoda,” “Candy Tour” to “Sportball Anthem,” the songs reflect Jack’s offbeat humor and eclectic musical tastes. These are not just songs for babies; families with older kids ages five and up will find worlds of fun and memorable melodies with Songs from the Monkey House. Indeed, all of these self-produced songs are directly inspired by strange conversations with real kids. You’ll get a sense of Jack’s lyrical genius and unusual sensibilities in songs like “A Little Cheese,” “I Lost My Lunch,” and even the relentlessly bouncy track, “No Name.”
Forman played every instrument, wrote and sang every word, and drank a whole lot of coffee in the months it took to turn kids’ ideas into a reality.
