Two hit songwriters from different genres came together to write some silly songs for kids. “Silly” soon morphed into irreverent, over-the-top and laugh-out-loud funny. Randy’s country roots and Dave’s children’s pop music roots collided creating a wacky, seesaw feel, moving from a country stroll where the wit of the lyrics sneaks up on you to a rock ‘n’ roll sprint where an outrageous lyric slams into you. You have to hear this to believe it.
Why we like it: Randy Sharp and Dave Kinnoin team up to double your pleasure on this CD. Calling All Elephants is packed with whimsical ideas, clever writing and a nice variety of musical styles. “Last Word” and “Hum” are a pair of wonderfully witty tunes that rank among my favorites of the year.
