“Is there anything James Coffey cannot do? I think not! At least not when it comes to children’s music . After Jim did such a great job with my first children’s CD, “IF I WERE A FISH”, I asked him to produce my second CD, “EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED and Other Animal Songs for Kids”. I could not have been more happy with the results. Jim brought my music alive with instrumentals and creative flare that uniquely captured each song’s mood and message. When I asked Jim to accompany my geese song, “Honk, Honk!”, with a Chicago Blues-style, he did! When I asked him use percussion that created a “slow and crawly feeling” for my worm song, he did!! When I thought I needed to hire Congolese guitar and percussion players for my song, “Bella the Gorilla”, I mentioned it to Jim and he thought he could do the job instead. And he did!!! James Coffey is truly a “one-stop” producer in the world of children’s music. I especially appreciated how Jim was willing to work with me to create the vision I had for this CD. At the same time, his expertise and imagination often added elements of playfulness and surprise to songs in ways I would not have imagined on my own. Jim’s mastery of a variety of instruments and musical genres, as well as his engineering brilliance, will have me coming back to Blue Vision Music for my future projects. Not only has “EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED and Other Animal Songs for Kids” won a 2013 Parent’s Choice Approved Award, but my fans absolutely love this CD!”
– Cheryl Procaccini (Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders | Little Ones Music)
