I am delighted to share that "A Heart with Your Name On It" was included in Uke Hunt's The Ukulele Mixtape! I just finished listening to the whole thing- it is an EXCELLENT collection of Creative Commons ukulele musicians. Al Wood of Uke Hunt created this mixtape in celebration of Culture Freedom Day- which is this coming Saturday 5/18. Ummmm.... as a big CC enthusiast, I must say: AWESOME.
Give the mixtape a listen, I'm sure you'll dig the selections, too. And share it with your uke lovin' buds! That's the fun of CC- us musician folk want you to share! Thanks again, Al! I'm honored to be part of the mixtape.

Our favorite authors, Tony Russell and Moira Waugh, made an exciting announcement about their novel-in-progress "Small White Dog" today. They are in the final editing stage! WHOOOOOOOOOOOO! (Yeah, THAT many O's.) I'm super excited for them. I cannot wait to read the completed novel. It's been a blast following their blog where Tony (the precious lil' dude in the photo to the left) shares his wonderful advice as a Canine Philosopher and Human Life Coach.
That's reason enough to blog about this project, but they also kindly mentioned a song by my collaborator friend, Piero Peluche, and I called "To Be Sensitive." Might kind, eh?
So hey, please visit the Small White Dog blog and get a feel for this awesome novel.

This includes films, TV shows, TV and radio advertising, video games, webisodes, websites, live events, remixes, and more. The license fee changes based on your budget and intended use.
Many of our songs are available on YouLicense (Kara Square / Piero Peluche / Team Smile and Nod) to make it easy and quick for you to get the song that you need. Most of the songs also have an instrumental version available. I am always open to creating instrumental versions or work-for-hire tracks to fit your specific needs.

My good novelist friends Moira Waugh and Tony Russell recently posted this wonderful (and humorous!) video interview of themselves. I bet most pet enthusiasts will love it!
