Now more than ever, kids need to find the power to deal with life’s challenges. We may all be looking for a super hero to save the day, but Roger Day reminds us that our true power lies within. Day, the (normally) nationally touring and multiple award-winning Nashville-based singer-songwriter, offers 10 original new songs in Invincible! to help youngsters “solve the problem” and “save the day” using their own imagination and skills.
Evaluation comments from our NAPPA Awards judge:
“Roger Day has created a super album centered around superheroes. However, the way Day sees it, you don’t need a caped crusader to be a superhero. One of the extraordinary things about this exceptional album is how Day illustrates the many ways that an ordinary person can do something super. The title track triumphantly leads off the album with a tune that promotes reading while extolling the mighty power of your imagination. Similarly, “Solve The Problem, Save The Day” champions the power of critical thinking while “Big Picture” underscores the importance of investigative thinking. Day explores superheroic side of normal life in the heartfelt “Love Is My Superpower” and the amusing “I’ll Be Your Superhero” as well as saluting bus drivers, nurses, coaches, and cooks for their vital work in “The Everyday Superhero Song.” He also includes some super tunes that don’t have “super” in their title; “Get A Robot First,” “Little Ants,” and “Me & My Jetpack” are humorous, fanciful numbers that add to Invinicible’s superhero motif. Much like Justin Roberts, Roger Day delivers a knockout one-two musical punch of sweetness and smarts in his music that makes Invinicible an unbeatable album.”
