about

The Strawberry Orcas are my daughter, Maya (11 years old at the time of this release), and myself. She came up with the name. I bought her a Tascam DP-02 for Christmas 2014 (the same digital 8-track I use to record my own stuff). I wrote and recorded songs 16 and 17 on her Tascam as part of her gift.

I taught Maya how to use the Tascam (as well as how to play guitar and piano - we learned ukulele together) and, in the year since, she's recorded over a hundred songs on her own, approx. half originals, half covers. After going through them, these songs are the originals she felt were good enough to be included on this album.

Maya wrote and recorded songs 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14 and 15, and I mixed them.

I wrote, recorded, and mixed songs 1, 7, 13, 16 and 17.

Maya wrote songs 2 and 3 when she was about 9 or 10. I recorded/mixed them and wrote/played backing instrumentation and sang backing vocals. Maya played acoustic guitar on song 3.

Song 10 was inspired by Flight of the Conchords, one of Maya's favorite shows. Song 11 was inspired by a John Yao poem I read to her.

The cover image is by Maya's mother, Carrie LaMacchia, who co-wrote and recorded song 8 with Maya.
