Won’t You Be My “Forever Young” Neighbor?

September 2nd, 2010

maggie.jpgExactly one-month from today, on Saturday, October 2, I’m releasing a brand-new LP, “Forever Young.”

It’s a collection of songs I loved growing up that I hope my three-month-old daughter, Maggie, will love someday too. Of course, I’m counting on you and your family enjoying it as well!

The record features many of my dearest friends lending their voices, guitars and keys. It is our intention to donate proceeds to The Fred Rogers Center and The Campaign For A Commercial-Free Childhood. Though neither is affiliated with the project in any way, we believe strongly in supporting their efforts towards advancing early learning and children’s media.

The complete “Forever Young” track list:

1 – The Rainbow Connection (featuring Amber Rubarth)
2 – Forever Young (featuring Emily Easterly)
3 – The Only Living Boy In New York (featuring Chris Abad)
4 – Mr. Tambourine Man (featuring Bryan Dunn)
5 – You Are My Sunshine (featuring Jason Walsmith & Becca Smith)
6 – Sweet Baby James (featuring Jeff Jacobson)
7 – You’ve Got A Friend (featuring Mai Bloomfield)
8 – Golden Slumbers (featuring Casey Shea)
9 – Amazing Grace (featuring Jamie Leonhart)
10 – Moon River

As you know, Mister Rogers is one of my heros, so inspiring to me that my brother and I produced a documentary about him called, “Mister Rogers & Me.” He used to say “Look for the helpers.” And that’s where you come in. Please email, Tweet or post a photo of yourself as a child to my Facebook page by September 15th. I’ll be editing a music video for the title track comprised of those photos which I’ll post to YouTube, Facebook, et all. One lucky participant will receive a pair of tickets to a special, cast and crew screening of the film.

Please join all of us to celebrate the release on Saturday, October 2 at two very-special benefit performances:

Saturday, October 2
3pm (all-ages!) & 8pm (grown ups!)
Rockwood Music Hall
196 Allen Street (at Houston)
New York, NY 10002

Looking forward to sharing you childhood memories, and creating new ones together all for a great cause…
