TA Mixtape / I Am Grateful For…(Happy Thanksgiving)

By Amanda DK

Connecticut Stone Walls

It’s been a big year both personally and professionally for Tadpole Audio – exciting new content, growth of valuable relationships in the community, revamped logo (you’ll see the full one soon enough) – and I’m just feeling very grateful for all the support we’ve gotten through it all. Thank you to everyone reading this now, and everyone who has ever taken the time to read an interview or listen to a mix featured on this site.  I’m confident that 2012 will hold even more exciting new developments and I cannot wait for them to unfurl.  So stay tuned for that, but for now please enjoy this tasty Thanksgiving mix – the perfect pairing for that leftover turkey sandwich I know you’re eating.

Gobble Gobble!

While an excellent opportunity for exposure, writing an original piece specifically for a project can’t be an easy task – especially for a movie geared to kids.
