Hi, I'm Benny, and I'm an early childhood educator and children's entertainer under the name Benny Time (Thats me down below in the suit)
My life in the early childhood sector has been an incredible time and to be truly honest, Im not entirely sure how to sum it up.
However, over the past few years through my podcast 'Benny Asking People Questions' (a podcast with children's entertainers) and my work within the children's music scene, I have become increasingly in awe of the music this country is producing for our youngest and most resilient. So much so that it's probably high time I hit the studio again and prove my worth.
Unfortunately, these things cost money. Money I'm afraid Im falling a tad short of. Which is why Im reaching out to you.
You see, Id like to do something special with this album and somehow pour into it everything Ive learnt from all the artists I have met and spoken with over the years, and all over the world. A big ask, but again, just a little out of my current price range.
Most of the funds will go into musicians. For example, a few years ago I made a show for the Casula Way Out West festival, repeated a few months later at the NSW art Gallery, which was a celebration of instruments of other countries. The Oud, Persian Tar, Guzheng, Erhu. It truly was a magnificent sight, even more so when parents expressed their joy in seeing their cultures celebrated.
So it kinda makes sense to put the song from that show on the album. The musicians from these show are incredible at what they do, and they play these beautiful instruments as if attached to their very soul. So I guess its only fare to pay them accordingly. Which is something Id like to do.
And they are only a hand full of the players I'd wish to invite (including a show stopping choir singing a song my children wrote about.......... I cant say, you'll just have to wait and see.)
So, as you can see, I have high hopes and hi ambitions for this album, and I suspect thats a great recipe for something special.
Ive already begun recording and as mentioned Im not asking fro it to be funded in its entirety but rather just help me get it over the line.
It would, to me, mean the world, and hopefully mean the world to the children who will eventually benefit from its creation the most.
Thanks for taking the time to hear me out. Speak soon.
