Jason & the Books
Children's music artist Alan Seeley continues to carve a unique niche in the genre. Rather than adding to the abundance of simple songs that currently populate the field, Alan Seeley strives to raise children's music to an art form. Knowing that kids today are sophisticated and are exposed to computers, the internet and television, Alan asks 'Why not challenge and entertain kids with quality songs and lyrics?' Alan's first CD, Tales in Tune, used contagious tunes, witty lyrics and state-of-the-art arrangements to tell stories about rapping rabbits, sluggish sloths, pizza ghouls, dizzy chickens and a variety of other creatures. His quest for writing stories in song has led Alan to pen musical plays as well. His new CD, Jason and the Books, tells the story of a young boy who would much rather play video games than read. When the boy finds himself home alone one stormy night, the power goes out and the books come alive. A gifted performer, Alan lives in New York City and frequently entertains young audiences in the metropolitan New York area. In collaboration with sound designer Wade Tonken, Alan records his CDs and musical plays on the Songs For Kids label, which he founded and runs.
