Here I Am! Not me, but the name of the debut album of this awesome band. Please note that since it’s release in 2009 there have been 3 more releases in less than 4 years. Two of them released in the same year. I would say that is pretty awesome but what is even more awesome is that Chris Ballew, the man behind the music, is the former lead singer of “Presidents of the United States of America.” Yes, those people. Yes, that song “Lump.” Regardless of how you felt about Presidents (I was a fan!) you can’t deny their propensity to produce a catchy tune or two. Well, Ballew has moved into the Kindie arena and it seems to be a beautiful fit.
The songs that Caspar has produced up to this point are catchy, soulful and filled with fun. Some of the songs are originals and others are beautifully revised. Here I Am was released back in 2009 and I chose to review this album first because my 3yr old has requested it every time we have gotten into the car for the past couple of months. Yes, months. But, we have the other albums and so I do try to sneak in some of their other classics which is always met with a breath of excitement to the tune of “Oh, this song is on here yay!”
So, get on over to their site and check out their sound. You can listen to samples from each album as well as buy the CD or individual tracks directly from their site.
