This past Thursday, award-winning musician Greg Lato was interviewed by WhatsUpRhodeIsland. Lato has transitioned from writing tunes for movies and television shows to creating children’s music and stories. According to him, this change has allowed him to feel more inspired and creative, all while having fun doing it. Greg Lato shares with us his plans to release an entire album of children’s songs this upcoming summer! He is overwhelmed with ideas, primarily due to his two young daughters acting as a huge influence and motivator. This past weekend he hosted two book readings and performances at Barrington Books in Cranston and Barrington Public Library in Barrington RI. Stay in tune to see what Greg Lato has in store for you and your children!
