“Sea Songs For Little Pirates”
Sea Songs For Little Pirates is a collection of fun marine biology/pirate themed folk rock songs for kids…that parents will appreciate!
After an adventurous musical journey with his friends in The Midatlantic, which went on a hiatus at the end of 2017, lead singer and songwriter, Jason Andre, was looking for new fun avenues to explore with his music. A longtime fan, free diver, sailor, captain and good old pirate friend named Ren Chapman looked at him one day and said, “You should write a kids album!”
Jason took the advice to heart and began to fondly recall all of his adventures in exploring the ocean, local salt marshes, and waterways with his nieces and nephews as well as generations of kids throughout the years as a marine biology/conservation educator, professional surf instructor, and true Outer Banks Pirate. As those experiences, discoveries, and love of sharing that which he loved most became lyrics, with friends, family members, and mentors transforming into creatures and characters, a collection of songs emerged.
His love of marine biology education and pirate folklore took shape and a year later Jason released eight original tracks, along with two recorded versions of an old traditional sea shanty, to hopefully further inspire, educate, and provide a fun soundtrack for kids into the world of marine biology and maritime exploration.
…and most importantly, the parents love it too!
