On the new album, Sleep On It vocalist Zech Pluister shares: “Recording on a kids album was unlike anything I’ve ever done before. It was honestly the most fun I’ve ever had recording a song in my life. Just imagining the looks on kids’ faces when they hear the song, and the fact that it was going
to teach them something very important just made me incredibly happy the whole time. I think what Sparrow Sleeps is doing is incredible. Taking the music they love and turning it into something they can share with, not only their kids, but kids everywhere is honestly so heart warming. Hopefully one day I’ll be cool enough to write a kids record for my future children.”
Sparrow and Friends is Casey Cole and Peter Lockhart of Sparrow Sleeps. The Midwestern duo have teamed up with some of their favorite vocalists to bring you Sparrow and Friends Start A Band!, the first release in their new series of music geared toward kids ages 3-5.
Cole and Lockhart have spent the last year in and out of the studio, writing songs about brushing your teeth, tying your shoes, counting to ten, and being polite. While the songs lyrically resonate with children, the guest vocalists on this album will be familiar to a lot of parents and the album’s music has been created to resonate with parents and children alike.
On the new album, Cole tells us, “Sparrow and Friends is probably one of the weirder pop-punk compilations out there. We’re still amazed at the artists that were willing to be a part of this project and bring this crazy idea to fruition.”
Tracked/mixed by Seth Henderson (Knuckle Puck, Real Friends) and mastered by Alan Douches (Brand New, Saves The Day), Sparrow and Friends Start A Band! is the essential pop- punk album for kids.
