I have written and reviewed books and such with my grandson Jordon in mind as he was diagnosed with Autism. We try to give him a wide range of things to stimulate his imagination, and motor skills as well as his social skills. His new “thing” is a listening to music on his Cd player. He loves to listen to music and sing his little heart out! Well, I gave him Tracey Singer’s new Cd to listen and he just went over the moon!! He sings right along and plays the whole Cd and then hits repeat after every song and it has become his new favorite! The songs are toe tapping and fun. All kids will just love this and some adults too!
San Diego based Tracey Singer (yes that is his real name) is a new voice on the kids¹ music scene, and his debut CD comes with impressive credentials. Set for a July 7 release, Sweets n¹ Treats, was produced by two-time GRAMMY nominee, children¹s musician Buck Howdy.
A consummate professional trained in the ³Great American Songbook tradition, Tracey Singer has, for many years, enjoyed a very successful solo career as vocalist/pianist, performing pop and jazz standards in an array of settings ranging from restaurants, clubs, and performing arts centers to corporate and private events.
While maintaining quite an active performing schedule, Tracey is also an at-home dad to four children under age nine. He explains, After one child turned into two, three, and four, the overwhelming influence that those kids had on every second of my life convinced me to turn, musically, to writing and performing music for the one audience I have come to know best, children.
Introducing such memorable characters as Foxy Joe, Hard-Hearted Haley, and the remarkable Mall Mom, with song styles ranging from old time rock n’ roll (featuring Marc Intravaia¹s blazing electric lead guitar solo) to close harmony vocals reminiscent of late 40s Andrews Sisters (backed by the sweet and soulful sounds of the album¹s resident soprano saxophonist, Tripp Sprague), Sweets n¹ Treats is much more than a simple, happy, pop music romp. Tracey¹s wit and style shine through this album filled with sophisticated harmonies and intelligently crafted compositions. Tremendous attention to detail has resulted in such special touches as the inspiring contributions of multi-instrumentalist Dennis Caplinger, who offers brilliant work on acoustic guitar, electric guitar, banjo, mandolin, Dobro, fiddle, and jaw harp. Great as a gift for any little one who loves to listen and sing along to music and songs!
