Road Race does it again. Another album of finished songs born as they were recorded. As Kirkland Leach plays keyboard and sings songs about his life and fantasy life you wonder, "Is he really Rocketboy, and is he really going to save the day?". He's 9. He plays keyboard and his mighty left hand keeps your feet and head moving while his right smites down his enemies with ferocious melody. We are glad we signed him when he was 7 cause when he's Hannah Montana's age, he'll be just as big... probably, and we hope.
Kirk, the renaissance kid from North Portland, runs Blue Jay Records, and has made thousands of handmade cdrs, tapes, videos, dvds, audiobooks, comic books, and drawings. This is a compilation of songs we licensed from him and are culled from the albums; Marley, Rock So Clever, Blossom, Rock Mix 203, and Whiskers.
The 3D cover is a drawing by Kirk, but the glasses and effect are done by the 3D genius Ray Zone. The music features members of the North Pole House Band; Shane de Leon, Gilles, and Bill Horist. The hi fidelity songs were recorded at Studio Olivia and the lo fidelity songs were recorded at the North Pole. Really you gotta hear it to believe it. Our best bet.
