Where Did The Dinosaurs Go Paul Austin Kelly - Walking Oliver Children's Kids Music

Paul Austin Kelly/Where Did the Dinosaurs Go?

The latest CD by singer/songwriter Paul Austin Kelly offers children upbeat and memorable sing-along songs that deal with many of their questions about science, people and the world around them. Inspired by his passion for social, scientific and environmental concerns, the songs on this album are tailored to the needs of the children’s educational market. The songs’ thought-provoking lyrics address a wide spectrum of important contemporary issues designed to spark lively family conversations.

Album Review
Opera singer Paul Austin Kelly wrote and performs the vocals and instrumentals on these 12 songs that cover a wide variety of musical styles including country, hip-hop, and folk. The themes of the songs range from the importance of recycling (“Life Recycle) to strangers (“Don’t Talk to Strangers”) to the human body (“Bones in the Body”). In “Little Jumping Gene,” children learn how genes determine our characteristics. “In Bicycles (The Coughing Song)” explains that cleaner air will help the planet. “Where Did the Dinosaurs Go?” covers the demise of these creatures. The unique topics and expert production values make this a good purchase for larger collections.–Veronica Schwartz DeFazio, Plainfield Public Library District, IL

Through Tenderwood - Walking Oliver Children's Kids Music

Paul Austin Kelly & Richard Durrant/Through Tenderwood

Not just another compilation of sung nursery rhymes, this CD is a through-composed tone poem of sounds and songs. The instrumental wizardry of Richard Durrant and the multi-faceted vocal stylings of Paul Austin Kelly spin an enticing web of enchantment using well-known rhymes such as Jack and Jill and Hey Diddle Diddle, as well as the less familiar Aiken Drum and Who Has Seen the Wind? Part traditional folk and part Pink Floyd-like psychedelia often interspersed with snippets of spoken word and sound effects, Kelly and Durrant interweave traditional and original settings in this musical journey from daylight to darkness and back again.

The cover artwork is once again by the award-winning children’s illustrator Korky Paul and all lyrics are included.

Oliver Unleashed On he British Isles - Walking Oliver Children's Kids Music

Paul Austin Kelly & Richard Durrant/Oliver Unleashed on British Isles

There is so much fun and wit packed into these 15 tracks of traditional folk songs of the British Isles! Kids will giggle their way through songs such as “Johnnie’s Lost his Marbles” and “Widdecombe Fair,” and will dance along to “Drunken Sailor” and the atmospheric fiddle tunes that follow. Featuring the beautiful and versatile singing of Paul Austin Kelly and the astonishing virtuosity of Richard Durrant, these songs are performed with great respect and expertise, supported by some of Britain’s finest musicians, including the legendary Herbie Flowers. In short, great music for the whole family. And the dog, too.
Booklet with full lyrics included.

~Review~ I’m at a loss for words. I’ve only ever been so moved by one other artist, and that was during a live concert. Additionally, my husband has about the most discerning taste in music that I’ve ever encountered, and he too truly enjoys this album. For us to find a CD that we can both enjoy is an accomplishment in itself, but this had my five-year-old roaring with laughter when Johnnie of “Johnnie’s Lost His Marbles” stuffed the terrier up the drainpipe. Bravo.~Kim Robasky, of Boopadoo.net and KidMixRadio.

Don't Want Bones For Christmas- Walking Oliver Children's Kids Music

Paul Austin Kelly/Don’t Want No Bones for Christmas

Paul Austin Kelly’s superbly crafted, dance-along, sing-along recording of upbeat Christmas favourites, traditional carols and original compositions destined to become a seasonal classic. Be sure to get one early enough to kick off the season with the joyous sounds of a Walking Oliver Christmas!
Includes full-color 16 page mini-book with complete lyrics and the breathtaking illustrations of award-winning illustrator Korky Paul.

REVIEW: “Opera singer Paul Austin Kelly continues his collection of songs for children with this funny Christmas album. From goofy renditions of classics such as “I’m Getting Nuttin’ for Christmas” and “The Twelve Days of Christmas” to a few originals such as “Don’t Want No Bones for Christmas (I Want an Electric Guitar),” Kelly sings engaging renditions of carols. With guitar, and synthesizer and drums, these aren’t traditional performances, but that’s the point. Kelly wants to appeal to kids who are bored with all that!” ~Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Dreams Paul Austin Kelly - Walking Oliver Children's Kids Music

Paul Austin Kelly with Richard Durrant/Dreams

This addition to the Walking Oliver catalogue is truly unique. A professionally produced CD based o n lyrics written exclusively by children. The first annual Walking Oliver Poetry in Song Competition of 2004 inspired well over a thousand primary students across Great Britain to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard in most cases) and compose poems o n the theme of Dreams.

Sharing a profound admiration for these young lyricists and respect for the emotional integrity of their work, Paul Austin Kelly and Richard Durrant have set their words to music, creating songs that are as meaningful as they are entertaining.

The enclosed booklet includes some of the original artwork submitted with the poems from our obviously multi-talented poets. Walking Oliver’s resident graphic designer Ornan Rotem graciously lends his imagination and skill in creating unity between sound and vision.

Suitable for children aged 4 and up.

~REVIEW: “Something remarkable has happened here. Paul Austin Kelly and Richard Durrant of Walking Oliver––producers of classy and beautifully recorded performances of songs for children–– have applied their considerable talents to 15 wonderful poems by children. The poems were entered for the Walking Oliver Poetry in Song Competition 2004, supported by the TES, and the result is always excellent, and often truly beautiful.” ~Gerald Haigh, London Times Educational Supplement TEACHER

Rap n Roll Paul Austin Kelly - Walking Oliver Children's Kids Music

Paul Austin Kelly/Rap ‘n Roll

A wonderfully eclectic collection of Paul Austin Kelly’s original songs from poems emailed to his son while Paul was touring as an opera singer. Whimsical, mysterious, and full of vivid imaginary characters, Rap ‘N Roll runs the gamut of musical styles and stories.

Includes mini-book with all lyrics and smashing cover art by award-winning illustrator Korky Paul.

~Review~ This brand of “rap ‘n’ roll” isn’t going to knock 50 Cent off the charts anytime soon, but its blend of colorful sounds and silly delivery will undoubtedly make kids happy. The “rapping” elements of the album are the interpretations of classic children’s stories but the real genius is the exceeding strangeness of a cut like “Opera Rap,” which veers into Zappa territory. – Jon Pruett (Rhapsody Staff Writer)

Unleashed On America Paul Austin Kelly - Walking Oliver Children's Kids Music

Paul Austin Kelly/Unleashed on America

UNLEASHED ON AMERICA is a collection of American folk songs that I’ve been working on for the past several years, during times when I wasn’t busy with other Walking Oliver projects or singing opera. They are all songs that I’ve loved for years, grown up with, had sung to me as a child, or was fascinated with in some way. I’ve lived with them most of my life and I feel I have my own voice with them. That’s how they were chosen. I hope you enjoy them and play them for your kids. And for heavens sake, sing along with me. That’s what these songs are about––singing.
