#236 – Andrew McMahon

The Life of Dad Show - Episode 236 - Andrew McMahon

Tommy Riles and Art Eddy talk about the songs that they sing and dance to with their kids, and then they bring on singer and songwriter, Andrew McMahon.

As parents we all have done it. We are singing to our children as we are holding them. Whether it is lullabies or silly songs we as parents feel that music is a great way to communicate to our children. Have you ever written a song about your child? Well, Andrew McMahon wrote one for his daughter while his wife was pregnant with their child. I am guessing most of you have heard it. The song is called Cecilia and the Satellite. It is a beautiful song and as a father the song really spoke to me the first time I heard it. Andrew put his words about being a father into that song and made it a worldwide hit.

Now Andrew is getting ready to release his new album Zombies On Broadway that comes out on February 10th. His new single, Fire Escape, is another hit! He is getting ready to go on tour.

Andrew was kind enough to take some time out of his busy schedule to chat about the new album, fatherhood, and his inspiration for the song he wrote for his daughter.
