What do you do when @MasaFukuda, your all-time arranger / director / producer / sound engineer / and gatherer of amazingly talented singers / is on a book tour in Japan during the time when you absolutely have to record your new Father's Day song?
Well, you call your friend, Daniel Blomberg (musical genius and co-writer of this song) and he calls his friend, Dave Zimmerman, at Noisebox Studios. And then you think:
Great! Now we had a track to sing to, and someone to professionally record the song, but -- just one little problem here -- we don't have any singers!
What do you do then? Well, I reached out to some of the best kids I know: my piano students. I could imagine the conversation:
"Hey, do you want to help record a new song in a professional studio for me?"
"On the piano?"
"On my violin?" (Some of them play strings also.)
"No. I want you to sing."
