San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) February 04, 2015
Wildly successful cartoon character-based rock group, Geeh the Band, will release its third album, ‘EVOLVE’ in April, as well as a new game app. This talented group of rockers have a fresh upbeat music and positive, interesting lyrics for the 4- to 10-year old crowd. The band’s new game App will allow Geeh fans to download it and play the first two albums of music without being connected to the internet.
When Alfonso Soto, the founder of Geeh the Band, launched the award-winning band through their first album, ‘HEAVEN’ in 2013, little did he know that he was creating rock stars from the ground up. Right now you can download all the music for free on their web site http://www.geehtheband.com or purchase the songs through iTunes.
Alfonso started the band because he noticed how his young children were attracted to the ‘hit’ songs of today, yet they had lyrics that were too sophisticated, or more aptly “too mature and just plain inappropriate.” His band launched and quickly garnered multiple music awards, as well as key parent recognition:
2013 – Album: HEAVEN – Song: ‘Life is meant to be fun!’ hit the Billboard Chart at #32
2014 – Album: FIERCE – Song: ‘We’ll make the world shine’ at #67 on Media Base
Rather than play down to the children, Alfonso’s idea was to create real rock music with value-driven lyrics that would appeal to a growing audience of children and their conscientious parents. Soto found some great youth-oriented Christian music and childish cartoon characters with music for toddlers, but nothing really existed in the pop marketplace for his kids.
“While Barney may appeal to some 4 year olds,” Soto feels that young kids would rather listen to the music of their older siblings. Soto reiterates: “They want to be ‘big kids’ and listen to ‘big kid’ music.”
The lyrics sung by Geeh the Band have included songs about: friendship, standing up for yourselves, love, going after your goals, you can do it, the greatest minds of the world are just like you and me, taking care of the planet, recycling and much more.
Also coming out this year is Geeh the Band’s new App, which is expected out in February, as well. This new App is much more kid-friendly and robust, allowing Geeh fans to download the App and then play the first two albums of music without being connected to the internet. Furthermore, it will have fun interactive mini games. Soon you will be able to download a special code from the App, web site and social media to get all 12 of the music videos which are being developed in tandem with the new album. Soto is rightfully excited about these new developments, he plans to share the App with kids at hospitals, recreation facilities and clubs.
