Hey North Fork parents, get ready to memorize the lyrics of all 11 songs on the latest album from Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could.
Southold’s most well known family music artist released his seventh album “Just Say Hi” today.
In December, Rymer and his band raised $20,000 through a Kickstarter campaign to record the album, which features the group’s trademark singalong songs.
The fun tunes include sure-to-be hits like the title track, which encourages kids to put on a friendly face and make new friends. “Let’s Get This Party Started,” the second track, features lyrics about enjoying music with the little ones such as “On came Beyonce and that ‘Single Ladies’ song. I turned that radio up and we all started singing along.”
“Music naturally brings people together and makes us all feel good,” Rymer said. “We had a blast recording these songs for you to enjoy. Watch out … our exuberance just might be contagious. Crank it up and ‘Get This Party Started’ with your family – and put a smile on your face.”
CDs are $12.99 and digital downloads are $9.99.
Rymer was nominated for a Grammy in 2009 and has worked as a professional musician for more than 13 years. He has performed with several rock legends, including Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews and the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir.
After becoming a parent, Mr. Rymer became interested in creating children’s music and later formed the critically acclaimed music group Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could in 2004. He and his wife, Bridget, also founded their record label, Bumblin’ Bee Records.
