BuildingBlocks Grammys IG rev 2 (1).jpg

Tim Kubart's fifth album for families and the follow-up  to his GRAMMY Award winning album, "HOME." 

Building Blocks is a pop celebration all about growing: growing wiser, growing bolder, and, above all, growing our circle of caring for family, friends, and our community near and far. Brimming with joyful energy and catchy pop hooks, it's an inspiring reminder of the power of caring featuring sing-along tunes about first days, new pets, and big steps.

Guests include Steve Burns (Blue's Clues), Genevieve Goings (Choo Choo Soul), Carly Ciarrocchi (Sprout House), Sara Niemietz and Drue Davis (Postmodern Jukebox), the chamber orchestra Little Kruta, and the Junior Chorus from Woodward Parkway Elementary School.

Produced by GRAMMY Award Winner Dominic Fallacaro. Engineered and Co-Written by Matt Puckett. The artwork featured is by noted collage artist Nell Pierce.
