Multi-faceted independent children’s recording artist David Weinstone, whose music videos are seen daily on the Nick Jr. channel, announces the March 8th release of his newest Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals CD, All I Want! (Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals, $13.98, for ages 0 – 7, run time 41 minutes.) The highly anticipated disc is the first full-length album of new songs in three years from one of the most influential children’s songwriters of our time.
Comprised entirely of new songs, All I Want! is David Weinstone’s sixteenth Music for Aardvarks recording. In this album, Weinstone continues to push the envelope both musically and lyrically, soaring through an exhilarating range of styles and executing them with superb musical literacy and a richness of instrumentation. Weinstone brings authentic childhood experiences to life with a sophistication and intelligence rarely seen in the kids’ music genre, updating and incorporating the best of the past to create music for today’s children that is grounded in tradition, yet culturally hip.
All I Want! is a fascinating CD that brings together an outrageous number of pop/folk/rock/blues styles to communicate a singular message: “All I want is me and you!” David Weinstone says, “In a world where children are bombarded with external stimuli from screens of all sizes and classes of all manner at an increasingly younger age (baby yoga meditation class! — Is that even possible?), and parents are busier than ever just trying to make ends meet, the core needs of our children remain the same. What kids need and really want from parents is simple: time and attention.”
