Club Called Awesome



ELECTRO-KINDIE FOR ALL!

'CLUB CALLED AWESOME'

A NEW ALBUM BY THE SINGING LIZARD

SET FOR MARCH RELEASE
"Amazing enough on the ears that it deserves to be here, there, and everywhere families are looking for rad summertime mini jams."
-- Jeff Bogle, Red Tricycle

"Let me catch my breath!  I just spent the past hour dancing it up to The Singing Lizard's hip techno flair CD, Make Believe ... Each song is a soulful pop adventure, and the lyrics are full of positive messages."
-- Marcy Fisher, Our Kids


"The difference with her sound is that it's a grown-up, piano-based pop that would not be out of place on the radio next to such singers as Leslie Feist and Regina Spektor."
-- Phil Corless, A Family Runs Through It

As one of the first artists to combine original and traditional children's music with electronic, pop, and dance genres, Liz DeRoche (a.k.a.   The Singing Lizard) moves listeners to the beat of an entirely new style she calls "Electro-Kindie."  The Singing Lizard is thrilled to announce the March 25 release of her third album for families, Club Called Awesome.

Described as "Regina Spektor mixed with Daft Punk," The Singing Lizardis an electro-pop singer/keyboardist/drummer who creates seriously fun dance parties for all ages.  Enthused Marcy Fisher of Our Kids, "Her songs will have you digging into your imagination and shaking your tail feather!"

Inspired by Radiohead, Daft Punk, and Bjork, Liz DeRoche wrote, recorded, mixed, and performed all the vocals and every instrument onClub Called Awesome.  The thirteen original songs on the album are replete with highly imaginative, plot-driven lyrics, tight electronic elements, and anthemic choruses that touch on themes ranging from starting a club where everyone's invited, being yourself, and trying new things, to enjoying the outdoors and growing up.

Exhibiting a penchant for mixing mediums, Liz DeRoche has created a comic book to accompany Club Called Awesome.  With text by Liz DeRoche and colorful illustrations by Marc Rene, the Club Called Awesome comic book encourages listeners to follow along as three young adventurers band together to start a club called Awesome, meet a robot named Beat Bot, make new friends, play games at the park, take a bite of something new, and celebrate every day.

The flip side of The Singing Lizard as a solo project for kids and families features Liz DeRoche performing and recording music for grownups withThe Pushovers (since 2009), Cane & the Sticks (since 2011), and Tom Goss (since 2013).  Liz tours regularly with Tom Goss and, on his latest release, Wait, she played drums and piano/keyboard, as well as doing the vocal arrangements.  She has produced several remixes for Goss, and on his upcoming album she sings back-up vocals.

A native of Western Oregon, Liz DeRoche traveled the world prior to settling down in Washington, DC, where she lived for eight years.  Since January 2015 she has been happy to call the San Francisco Bay Area home.

Previous albums by The Singing Lizard include Make Believe (2013) andAlphaBeat (2010).

Club Called Awesome will be available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Bandcamp, and at The Singing Lizard's live shows.

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!

3 HOME IMPROVEMENT TO MAKE BEFORE MOVING IN

While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both. If you are moving to a house that is not entirely ready, you have massive things to do. To make things smooth, create a list based on priorities.

When you make house changes before moving in, you can save your floor and furniture from paint spills. You will have an open space to plan the house interior. You can protect yourself and your family from hazardous odors and dust. There are several home improvements like removing popcorn ceil
