“It’s been almost eight years since our last children’s album,” Danylo Fedoryka said. “We’re super excited about that, especially because Alex’s wife, Catie, sings on the record. She’s incredible. Her voice is like an angel’s voice. Catie is super high quality so it’s really rewarding to work with, not just my brother’s wife, but this incredible professional.

“It’s great because it’s my brother and his wife and my sister, Larissa, too,” he continued. “The songs are for kids but it’s great for adults too. We mixed it up. It was really a rewarding project for us because we got to do the full gamut from kid stuff to adult stuff you could hear on a Top 40 radio station.”

Dayton fans will get a chance to hear Catie’s voice in person this weekend. She’ll be opening the shows with Mountain Duo, her new project with Larissa.
“On this, tour they’re only with us in two places — Dayton and Pennsylvania,” Danylo Fedoryka said. “They debuted Mountain Duo at Appaloosa, our festival in Virginia, and it was so well received. My sister plays the classical cello, Catie plays the guitar and they sing harmonies together. It’s very mesmerizing.”
