Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star - LULLABY HITS OF 2014 Released!

When it comes to lullabies, there is no company more prolific than Roma Music Group and their TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR series. They've released over 160 albums worth of baby-friendly jams for the nursery, each re-working a popular artist (or a collection of them) into "lush instrumental" versions. While we've just reached the halfway point of 2014, they've just released LULLABY HITS OF 2014 (Amazon | iTunes), which I'd sorta venture is probably "Volume 1," and by year's end a sequel will be released - just a hunch. But if you're looking for something a little different for your baby's sonic indulgence, check this out...

Rock Father's Day 2014: Artist Spotlight - Darryl Tookes #RockFathersDay

"My wife and I were in our hotel room in Miami where we were attending a music conference when she announced the big news," explains DARRYL TOOKES, recalling the moment he first realized that he'd soon be a Father for the very first time. "I was really surprised, and after the initial moment of being caught off-guard, I quickly realized that it was time! When this happens, you just get ready. I think I was able to reassure Donna that we would be fine, and that we were going to have a great time being parents. She was a little concerned that we had not planned to start our family yet, but I was happy that the little guy was on his way. I guess Donna wanted to be sure we had the chance to be a young married couple for awhile, and I would say we did." Tookes, an accomplished pianist, composer, arranger, educator and humanitarian, has an astounding resume that includes performances and recordings with Sting, Paul Simon, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, George Benson, Diana Ross, Leonard Bernstein, Burt Bacharach, Carly Simon, Luther Vandross, Laurie Anderson, Dave Grusin, Patti Austin, Steve Tyrell, Nile Rogers, Lesley Gore, Blondie, Natalie Cole, Todd Rundgren. Now, with Rock Father's Day 2014 nearly here, he's taken time to discuss music and Fatherhood as a certified "Rock Father."

With Rock Father's Day fast-approaching (June 15), it can be expected that there's a lot of new dads out there - or even some soon-to-be dads (and Moms!) - that dig a little throwback hair metal from time to time. For those about to rock their nursery, my friends at Roma Music Group have been building quite the library of lullabies based on the works of popular artists. Whether you hope to have a rock star baby, a hard rock and metal baby, or even a pop star, jam band, soul or musical-loving infant, they have something for you in their Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star collection, and with LULLABY VERSIONS OF HAIR METAL POWER BALLADS having just-been released, they've teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER to get five (5) lucky readers hooked-up with digital downloads of the new record, just in-time for Father's Day.
