Consumer Critique: The Bazillions - On the Bright Side

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

Award-winning Minneapolis-based kindie band The Bazillions will be releasing a bright, catchy, upbeat album, On The Bright Side. This album is in the same vein of Schoolhouse Rock - entertaining, fun, singable songs that include little tidbits of knowledge.

My older daughter loved this album. She loves to learn, and enjoyed telling her dad all the fun things she learned from the CD when he came home. My younger daughter loved the song about what heroes do in their free time. I loved the fact that it was good music and fun for me to listen to.

The Bazillions began in 2010 when parents/educators/singer-songwriters Adam and Kristin Marshall were teaching at Kenny Elementary School in Minneapolis. From their first days in the classroom, the couple found themselves writing songs for and with their students. Before long, the kids knew every word to every song, and parents had started asking for a CD. So, along with the other members of their indie pop band The Humbugs, the Marshalls recorded and released Rock-n-Roll Recess under a new alter-ego band name, The Bazillions.

On The Bright Side will be available at iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby,, and at all The Bazillions' shows.
