Heaphone Hair!

As a mom that produces music from my home studio, I have been known to sport a special hairstyle I call, “headphone hair.” It’s hard to describe but there’s a unique shape the hair takes on from a day of recording. We’ve all been known to sport that “hat hair” look but when you wear headphones for hours on end it’s a special look of it’s own. Recording is such a timeless venture. One guitar track can take hours and once I dive into the process I’m usually sucked in for the…

Shame on the Sham!

It was quite an education in the mechanics of licensing a song when I recorded my first children’s album and all I can say is “Shame on the Sham!” The “Sham” I am referring to is Sam The Sham who wrote the classic rock & roll tune called “Wooly Bully.” Why the shame? Well one day I was inspired by a 4-year-old preschool student who had come in from the play yard filled with excitement because a roly poly (aka “potato bug”) had just climbed on his arm! In a magical moment of…

Just Had To Get Out There!

One of the many hats I wear is “preschool music teacher.” In my music classes there are those kids that simply have to be heard. I see that star fire in their eyes and on their faces. They simply need to stand out, shine and share it with everyone!

I understand this. When I was 5, my dad took my brothers and I to a big theater in Cleveland, Ohio to see Captain Kangaroo live and on stage, along with his side kicks, Mr. Green Jeans and the Dancing Bear. It was all very exciting and it…

My Mom’s An Alien!

My first preschool music gig was at my son’s school Miss Sandies when he was 4 years old. I was so excited to be able to sing some fun songs with my son’s classmates, and especially with my son! That day we had music time outside since it was a beautiful spring morning. Out comes my son’s class all excited and they situate themselves on the picnic tables. We began with a good ol’ round of ABC’s and their sweet voices filled the air. Pure joy was written all over their faces as they bounced…

Why a “Why?”

I’m getting very close to finding my “why,” and when I do I’m going to nail that sucker to the wall. Why am I looking for my “why? “ Because a book I read recently inspired me. It’s called, “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek (http://www.startwithwhy.com/Read.aspx). It’s a study of why some people and organizations are more innovative, influential, and profitable than others. How having a clear sense of “why” is the basis for…

A Blog about A Blog, or Blog Blog

Welcome to my very first Blog. I am an uncommon music mom that swims in a whacky crossover world between children’s and adult music. With the release of my new album “Amy Liz Kid Hits,” I’ve taken the plunge and rebranded my children’s musical self as Amy Liz and maintained my singer/songwriter adult self as Amy Wigton. Since we are all now slaves to the internet and google, it made sense not to have “Gallop Little…
