The Singing Dogs and I have been working on more Christmas songs and holiday music for all of our fans enjoyment. Yesterday it didn't seem like Singing Sierra or Crooning Cody were in a musical mood. I was playing for quite awhile on my Alto saxophone with piano accompaniment by my brother. We were just practicing and I was not expecting much… until Sierra started to sing to “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Cody joined in as well.
It seem we just need to get into the right groove as a band and play the right song for them to sing. I was playing “Jingle Bells” and some other Christmas songs but there was no reaction. I think Singing Sierra and Crooning Cody really liked having a complete band with the piano. It gives the singing dogs a much fuller sound. More videos with piano accompaniment are on there way before Christmas.
We hope you all enjoy “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Please also watch our other Christmas songs “Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer” and “O Christmas Tree.” If you have Christmas songs you would like the Singing Dogs to sing please submit a song request. We can't guarantee we fulfill a request but we will try out best to do so.
If you like our videos please leave a comment and let us know. We love hearing from fans! Please also Like our Facebook page and Follow us on our Twitter feed. You can also see more videos on our Youtube channel. We keep everyone updated with the latest news and videos of the Singing Dogs there.
I finished uploading and editing a version of “Auld Lang Syne” today which features just Singing Sierra. (You can hear Crooning Cody too a little in the video too, but you need to listen closely.)
Sierra not only sings in this video but she is singing lying down on her side. I would say it's a lazy version of “Auld Lang Syne!” Sierra likes to sing lying down a lot but this is one of the best videos we have of her singing lying down. It's great!
Compared to our original Auld Lang Syne Youtube video, which got us on Anderson, I think Sierra's singing has really developed and improved. She seems to be following notes more closely now and wants to follow along with the song and music. Cody does a better job now too, but still doesn't quite open up his mouth as much so his singing is more muffled. I guess Sierra needs to give him more singing lessons.
Auld Lang Syne is just the start of the all the holiday music and songs we will be releasing over the next couple weeks. We have many Christmas songs we are practicing and working on getting onto the camera. Sierra and Cody can sometimes be “Dog Divas” and won't sing when we get out the camera. I guess they are shy!
Remember you can also Suggest Holiday Songs or Christmas songs for Crooning Cody and Singing Sierra to sing. We can't accommodate all song requests but will do our best to try.
The Holiday Season is right around the corner and this means different things for different people. For Crooning Cody, Singing Sierra and myself (aka The Singing Dogs) this means we are practicing hard on getting some holiday songs ready for the holiday season.
Instead of us dictating what our loyal fans and public want to hear and see on your Youtube channel, I thought I would ask all of you. I am sure lots of people have their own personal favorite holiday songs and tunes they want to hear sung by “The Singing Dogs.” If this is the case, please don't hesitate to let us know by leaving a comment below.
Please note Sierra is what I refer to as a “Dog Diva” since she only sings when she feels the urge and wants to. Sierra also doesn't always like it when we shoot her on camera, since we can't figure out her good side. Cody will sing by himself once in awhile, but not nearly as loudly when he has dog duets with Sierra.
Therefore it will be difficult for me to fulfill all song requests and we just can't do every holiday song. We are happy to accept requests for obscure songs, but please note if you can't provide a for us to hear the song or sheet music it will be difficult for us to cover the song. Cody, Sierra, and I would have to find the time to transcribe the song and then shoot a video for it, which is a time consuming process.
