Lanny is a singer-songwriter and is President of the children’s record label, Sandman Records. He has released 5 award-winning kids’ CDs, each of which follow his label’s motto: “DON’T DRIVE PARENTS CRAZY!
Having spent several years banging his head against the walls of Music Row as a songwriter in Nashville, Lanny’s son, Alec, was born in 1997. After about 2 months of listening to Barney, Elmo, and other brain-frying lullaby CDs on the market, he decided to write his own: “Dream With Me Tonight – Lullabies For All Ages”. Asylum recording artist, Melodie Crittenden, sang the mesmerizing vocals. Find out more at Sandman Records.
Awards & Accomplishments
Lanny Sherwin’s 5th children’s album is a wondrous amalgam of brilliant songwriting, excellent arrangements, and a skewed humor and perception that parents will totally dig.”
John Wood – Kidzmusic.com (Feb 22, 2010)
“Sherwin consistently delivers creative and child-centered original songs like few other artists. I was impressed with everything about “Meltdown”. He is one of those great independent artists who is creating really wonderful music for kids.”
Fred Koch – Chicago Parent Magazine (Sep 1, 2009)
If you are a regular reader of Seeryus Mama, you know that I love the music by Lanny Sherwin. Best of all, it’s music that doesn’t drive parents crazy! Perfect for my 9 year old, yet my almost 2 year old loves to groove, too. Lanny’s music is a must-have! Sky Seery – SeeryusMama.com (Aug 1, 2009)
