The new single "We All Get Scared" will release just in time for Halloween 2019.
Thank you to all who participated in the song!
Hopefully I didn't miss anybody.
Hey guys. When I originally started Punk for Families it was going to be a collection of children's songs done by different punk bands. I failed at getting many bands on board, so I decided to just turn it into a solo band. The name never really did it for me, so after much thought, I decided to change the name. I love the song "Don't Splash Marty" on the second album and thought that was perfect for this project. It is fun and gives me a little more freedom. Hope you likes it.
I am very excited to announce that the latest album "Move" is out now. You can get it here! or click the picture above.
If you are more of a CD person and not really into streaming, get the physical CD right now for ONLY $4.99! Just click the image if you want one. It helps support what I do and is appreciated.
This album was a lot of fun to make. I worked hard to try to make songs that both kids and adults would like. If you are a fan of Blink 182, NOFX, Pennywise, Dogwood, Craig's Brother, Reel Big Fish, Back Garden Light, Lagwagon, MXPX, Five Iron Frenzy, Rufio, etc., you should check out these songs. There are 6 originals and 4 classic children's songs that have been rethought and rearranged as punk songs.
1. Snow Day (Original)
2. A-Tisket, A-Tasket (Ella Fitzgerald's Version)
3. Don't Splash Marty (Original)
4. Row Row Row Your Boat (Punk Pirate Version)
5. Skate (Original)
6. New Shoes (Original)
7. She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain (Traditional Folk Song)
8. The Weirdest Race (Original)
9. Here We Go 'Round the Mulberry Bush' (Children's Classic)
10. The Worst Bedtime Song Ever Made (Original)
If you like the album please rate it on iTunes. If you want to feature any of the songs on your children's radio show, please let me know.
It was late at night and I couldn't sleep. I went down to my "recording studio" and wanted to work on a song. I had the music done for this song already, but decided to work on the vocals. As I listened to it, I thought it would be fun to sing it as a pirate...well about 8 pirates in all. It was a lot of fun to do the different voices. I imagine kids will love running around to this one. There is definitely a part that is good for um moshing??? (I mean running and jumping around safely..cough cough). Row Row Row Your Boat (Punk Pirate Version) will be out soon on all your favorite streaming services as well as for purchase on Google Play and iTunes etc. Support what I do by spreading the word or buying it.
Below is how far the album is along. There will be some mastering tweaks etc, but it is pretty close. If you follow me on Instagram you will get clips of the songs as I get them done.
I have a ton of hours and late nights into this thing and it has been a fun ride.
Thanks for your support. I will reveal the album title and artwork in the coming weeks.
You can find the original Punk for Families Self-Titled album on all your favorite streaming services. You can also buy it on CD for flippin' cheaaaaap. HERE
