We Are Famous Peoplehymns record. He even got to sing on a few of the hymns. As a result, we've been listening to some of these songs as well as other albums that these artists and their bands have made. So it happens quite often that Jed tells the kids, "These are Daddy's friends singing this song." And even occasionally, "I'm singing in this song."
Back in January or February, Jed shot a Neon Trees show and spent some time with the band on a couple occasions (Branden Campbell, the bassist, also played on the hymns record.) Some of you may know that the Neon Trees have become rather famous lately, playing the likes of Jimmy Kimmel Live and the Tonight Show. So when Parley and Julian took so heartily to Animal when they heard it on the radio, again, Jed told them that some of his friends made that song.
This afternoon Hazel had her friend over playing and listening to a the new mixed CD Jed made for the kids (to relieve our poor ears from constant Air Supply and Michael Jackson). The Neon Trees' Animal made the mix, and when it came on I heard Hazel telling her friend something, so I stopped in the other room and listened.
"This is my daddy's band. His friend is singing this part."
And just like that, Jed became the fifth Neon Tree. Now we just sit back and wait for those royalty checks.
