Cat Doorman’s first stop-motion video! Such huge thanks go to my friend Alexis Gideon for staying up late with me, shooting and editing this. It’s was such fun to work on.
Find out more about Cat Doorman, my kids’ music project here. We just returned from New York where we were selected to perform the Kindiefest showcase at BAM. And last month, we received a Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award! This Thursday (May 9) we’ll be featured on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Oregon Art Beat (click here for a preview). Check the website for shows (we’ve got a lot coming up!) and for a more regularly attended blog!
It’s me, guys! And I have some really exciting news to share. On January 24, 2013 I’m going to be releasing two giant projects. One is an interactive app for children I’ve been working on with Night & Day Studios for the last year. “Little Red Wagon,” looks like nothing you’ve ever seen on a tablet before! Made from hundreds of my hand-painted illustrations, almost all of which can be interacted with and accompanied by an adaptation of a classic children’s song I recorded with Black Prairie’s Chris Funk, Annalisa Tornfelt and Jenny Conlee. The app looks like a beautiful book brought to life! The second is a full-length album for children under the name Cat Doorman. 12 of the 14 songs are originals on Cat Doorman Songbook and I’m so beyond delighted with the arrangements. The cd will contain a 20 page booklet with my illustrations! This work has so enveloped me and been such a delight to produce and there’s so much of my heart in it. It’s very much intended for children and their parents.
We’ll be making performance our debut at Portland’s fabulous You Who, warming up the stage for Blind Pilot on January 6. And we’ll be celebrating our record release at Mississippi Studios on January 26. Visit their website to save a little money on advance tickets! See you there!
