This album is dedicated to kids of ALL ages (including big ones aka adults!) who want to be able to look after themselves, the place where they live and the people they live with by growing and eating healthy food with care, growing a healthy mind & body and feeling inspired to do amazing things that can change the world!
Grow Do It on CD in a beautifully presented hard-cover that is essentially set out like a children’s book. The hand-drawn illustrations by Oz Thomas are in fantastic storybook style with things to do corresponding to each track.
With a mind-blowingly talented all-star cast featuring trombone, trumpet and a bass guitar made out of a pumpkin from Mal Webb, biodynamic drum-breaks from Michael Barker (John Butler Trio/The Black Sorrows), chicken-pickin’ guitar licks from Alex Burkoy (Tinpan Orange/The Cat Empire) swingin’ voilin from Kylie Morrigan (Stevie Wonder/Barry White/Led Zeppelin) and the ukulele spaghetti-squash & smoky paprika voice of Charlie Mgee, the collective have been propagating, pollinating and pot-roasting their second album for nearly a year with the help of Melbourne electronic producer, Spoonbill (Opiuo/DubFX).
