Modern Kid (CD or Digital Download)

When I recorded Slugs & Bugs Under Where? nine years ago, my "modern kids" were still little bits, teaching me how to be a dad. They taught me to take children seriously, and take myself much less seriously, and I’m a better man for all the lessons. Today they are 19, 17 and 12, and I still learn from them all the time.

This record is for them as much as it is for all of you. For parents, I hope these songs help us sing out loud, dance like crazy people, and generally climb down off our high-adult horses and remember to be kids right along with the little sticky miracles that call us mom and dad.

For the kids, I hope this music brings you light and laughter, and freedom to be the masters of wonder that you are. I’m excited to introduce the uninitiated to Doug the Slug, Sparky the Lightning Bug and Ms Carla (from our Slugs & Bugs TV Show) and the super-cute and super-smelly Pangolin. And among other things, I hope this record makes bed-making and dog-walking more fun for everybody. Enjoy!
