"Recording demos for this children’s album that I’m trying to put out around Christmas.

What makes a song a “kids “song. Just becuase it’s for kids doesn’t mean it has to be dumb right?"



sdupreebemis Ohmygosh im so glad you're finally doing this!

anthonygreen666 @sdupreebemis me to! It's taken a long time to get everything moving but it's coming along great. Would love for you and max to contribute of your down! Can't wait for more perma jams! Send you guys some stuff soon. Trying to figure out the fictitious cartoon band that will release it under.


stephanyg666 What ever happend to making a children's book ?

anthonygreen666 @stephanyg666 the book is going to be release with the album as well as a kids clothing line designed by @meredithgreen


katwoughter A great kids song is made up of lyrics an adult that is stuck listening to over and over that aren't lame and fun instrumentals for the actual kids

anthonygreen666 @katwoughter I agree with you completely. The content is about youthful stuff but in general it's just like making any other record


tigerbrettlee Is @goodoldkeith recording with you? Because that would be great news

anthonygreen666 @tigerbrettlee yes @goodoldkeith is helping me. He is my guru


brianfantana Mini xylophones

anthonygreen666 @brianfantana yeah like very song is going to have them in it haha 2d


anthonygreen666 My favorite song was "everything I do" by Bryan Adams for the Robin Hood theme song. I was obsessed. And Kokomo by the beach boys I put on concerts for my family just singing Kokomo over and over

yea i actually really like that. Anthony needs to make more drawings.


it kind of reminds me of some of picasso's work. Particularly the mark making pattern.


idk how well it works for a kid's design, but idgaf

that's awesome. any kid who wears that is the coolest kid ever. ♥ if I was a kid I'd totally wear that. I was into the more darker artist-type clothing when I was a child.


I honestly think it could work as a kids design.. they need to open up the ideas and styles for kids clothings.. make them more artistic, moody, and more sophisticated instead of a fuckin flower with a face on a tshirt. and to be honest, I can already see that happening with the childrens clothing that I've seen lately at macy's or nordstrom. his design would totally fit in and bring something new to the table if he went more towards these types of illustrations.


I'm all for it :thumb:

Q: Hey Anthony, so since the birth of my now one year old daughter, I have sung to her, and played to her many of your songs as lullabies, like baby girl, and better half. They work wonders on calming her down when she's restless. Might be a weird question but, considering you have children and are a musician, you must make up little tunes for them and maybe sing them to sleep at night, so I was wondering if you ever considered making an album of lullaby-esque songs for little ones?


A: i started writing a kids record when i was on heroin and it was really strange and not in a good way i have at least five songs on my iPad that i sound inane on. when i got clean i sort of abandoned the idea. thought of doing a kids book but I'm better at writing songs. we make t-shirts for our kids and selling them on line but its no big thing . its sort of an excuse us to make stuff for our kids
