David Bowie proved that there are no rules about who you should or could be in this world. His musical and artistic approach defined creative freedom. He lived a glowing life on his own terms, a shining example of the infinite possibilities out there. In addition to celebrating Bowie’s catalog and life’s work, the project introduces him to today’s kids. From “Kooks”, to his narration of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf to his part in Labyrinth and his own role as a father, it seemed Bowie always knew that children were a different species and he welcomed them into his world.
Producers on the album include multi-Grammy nominee and winner Dean Jones, author and musician “Uncle Rock” Robert Burke Warren, Stephanie Mayers, manager and publicist of Mayers Consulting, and Bill Childs, owner of Spare The Rock Records and producer of nationally syndicated radio show Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child. Cover art was created by popular children’s book illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Lunch Lady, Punk Farm, Star Wars: Jedi Academy).
