    Get sweet. Get fun. Get moving. Join the party – aren’t you and your little ones ready for another Play Date?

    Kindie music tour-de-force Play Date - husband and wife duo Greg Attonito (singer of punk legends The Bouncing Souls) and singer-songwriter Shanti Wintergate - are back with We All Shine; a new collection of dreams and wishes, wrapped in infectious melodies and empowering lyrics that will get the whole family boppin’, creepin’, singing and dreaming.

    Their previous release, the award-winning Imagination, hit all the right notes - earning the type of accolades that only come when you’re on to something special:

    • Winner, 2014 Parents Choice Award - Parents, who enjoy the folk pop of The WinterPills, or The Nields, will find a similarly minded, fun filled band for their children in Play Date.
    • Winner, 2014 Creative Child’s Seal of Excellence Award - Imagination is a whimsical collection of feel-happy songs.
    • Winner, 2015 National Parenting Publications Award - Fun and catchy tunes for the entire family. Encourages children to participate in music fun!

    Play Date’s new record - We All Shine - is light, soulful, stylish, and unforgettable. From the sly “Stevie the Fox”, to the super-sneaky rap lullaby “Ninja Pajamas”, to the undeniably heart-filling “L-O-V-E You” - these songs may have been written for children, but they glow with a sophistication that will surprise and convince even the grumpiest grownups and snobbiest music snobs. Hummable hooks and groovy grooves; mischievous melodies for all ages. Flecks of garage rock, dancehall, pop, synth, Patsy Cline and They Might Be Giants. It’s children’s music that doesn’t insult children, or their grown-ups. When the kids pass out in the back seat, mom and dad won’t want to change the music.

    So set your awesome music tunes downloader machine to fun, and get ready for We All Shine.

    Oh, and be sure to eat your Fruits & Veggies!

about

Nuances of the late ‘60s on “Stevie The Fox,” a whimsical tale of a poetry reading/philosophy talking fox, painted in sharp, foxy colors of insight and wit.

lyrics

STEVIE THE FOX

Stevie the fox out of the box
Stevie the fox out of the box
Stevie the fox oh yeah

In the forest where he had grown he played all the fox games
He loved his house and his brothers and sisters but he didn’t feel quite the same
He liked to talk with the owls about their philosophy
Gazing up at the stars and reciting his poetry
He spoke to a dragonfly he said why oh why why oh why am I
Stevie the fox

Stevie the fox out of the box
Stevie the Fox oh yeah

The Dragonfly was rather wise he spoke sweetly to Steve
He said you are here to love yourself and everything that you see
Keep talking with the owls about your philosophy
Oh by the way I really dig your poetry
He flew up to the sky he said thats why your
Stevie the fox out of the box

Stevie the fox out of the box
Stevie the fox oh yeah

Walking in the trees feeling my paws I’m alive in the world
And I’m wild in the world because
I think of things nobody else does
I’m happy in the world and I’m wild in the world because
I think of things nobody else does

Stevie the fox out of the box
Stevie the fox out of the box
Stevie the fox my friend
