Just in time for Father's Day comes the full-length debut album from real-life father and son, Lou & Frank Gallo, who go by the name Like Father Like Son, as both artists are not new to children's music. The duo's new album is titled "Sun Is A Star" and was released June 8th on the group's own label, L.F. Gallo Records. The new 14-song album begins with the title-song, "Sun Is A Star," as they try to teach us, along with the song's addictive swinging rhythm. Their new release continues with slinky pace of "Halloween Night," before delivering fun, up-lifting covers of "Day-O" and "Rain Rain Go Away." The father and son duo deliver the heartfelt words of "Little Bit Of Time," before reaching the highlight of the album (at least for me it is), their spot-on cover of the Traveling Wilburys' "Handle With Care." Like Father Like Son wrap up their new album with the swinging, acoustic rock rhythm of "I Got A Beard" and the pop feel of the duo's theme song "Like Father Like Son."

Arriving July 13th is the fourth full-length album from children rock/pop artist Steve Elci & Friends. The new album "Jump In The Puddles" features ten tracks, beginning with the title song as he delivers a swinging blues sound that will certainly inspire you play out in the rain. Steve Elci & Friends continues along with an ode to "Teddy Bear" and the early rock and roll vibe of "Balloons," before the detailed poetic lyrics of "Bumblebee" will shine in your heart. They finish up their new album with the up-tempo beats of "Hello," as Steve looks to teach you how to say "hello" in different languages. They finish their new album with the fun lyrics of "Three Chord Song." Steve Elci & Friends have a show planned at the end of the month as part of the Ocean Beach Park Music Series in New London, CT.
