Bandcamp is an ever-expanding universe that spans all manner of musical and sound expression, but one particularly playful corner is reserved for the young at heart: kids’ music.

Although many famous musicians have dipped their toes in children’s music for an album or two (They Might Be Giants come immediately to mind), there is a rich array of independent artists on Bandcamp using the platform to upload music specifically created for enjoyment by youngsters—much of it happens to be great listening for adults, too.

Just like music for grown-ups, kids’ music on Bandcamp is diverse and wildly creative, ranging from rock ‘n’ roll ABCs and bilingual folk songs to lullabies for infants and narrative sing-a-longs that use handclaps and call-and-response to encourage interaction from the little ones.

You may have noticed that it has been very quiet over here at KK Music Headquarters for quite some time now. That is because I have just completed a huge and lengthy transition of moving from San Francisco to a small town in Santa Barbara County. With so much going on plus a lot of uncertainty and stress, it was difficult for me to focus on sharing my music with my wonderful fans. But my guitar is finally out of it’s case and it’s time to start rockin’!

I’m looking forward to sharing my adventures in SB County as I explore the area and hopefully find lots of inspiration for new songs! In the meantime I would like to say a huge thank you to all my friends and fans in the Bay Area for your support over the years. I have had the most fun performing Obstacle Course all over the Bay Area and rockin’ out with your little ones.

I have shared this video before but it seems appropriate to share again with it’s San Francisco theme. I love you SF! I definitely left a piece of my heart with you. Keep rockin’ and see you soon.

Sunday, October 4th – Blossom Hill Farmers’ Market

This Sunday I  return to Blossom Hill – the first market I ever played! Here I am back in June 2014 with my #1 fan right by my side. He’s showing his support and enjoying a delicious treat from the market. I think it was a peach. I had a blast that day and I’m looking forward to playing this market again.
