HFVS Music Giveaway: “A Family Album” by The Verve Pipe

New Music Giveaway
A Family Album by The Verve Pipe

By far, A Family Album by The Verve Pipe is one of our favorite family CD’s to come out this year – and we have two copies to giveaway to two lucky families!

Your family is going to love the fun pop songs on this album. The foodie in me loves the playfulness of “Suppertime!” and the mom in me gets choked up to “Only One of You.”  My 8yo daugher (and co-host of the Hilltown Family Variety Show) can’t get enough of “Complimentary Love” and “When One Became Two” (I’m raising a little romantic!).  A Family Album is a great CD to have in the family car for enjoyable listening by all members of the family.

Randy and Donnie from The Verve Pipe recently hosted the Hilltown Family Variety Show, selecting songs from A Family Album, along with great selection of songs from their childhood. Listen to the Podcast anytime, or tune in to an encore on WXOJ 103.3FM Northampton, MA on Saturday from 9-10am and Sunday from 7-8pm.

Lend your hand in the creation of a community playlist by posting a playful tune you remember from your childhood (or recently discovered), and be entered to win.  Deadline to enter to win is Wednesday, August 18th at 7pm (EST). Details below.


“Bridging middle ground between Sesame Street albums and The Beatles, The Verve Pipe has created a record that both children and parents can listen to and enjoy. The ten songs that encompass the record are full of bright choruses and contagious melodies that will swim inside your head after one listen. It’s their experience with writing melodic gems that allows them to get away with a record that induces a smile at every turn. "A Family Album" can keep you company with its insanely fun, playful and memorable songs that will turn your smile upward.” (antiMusicnetwork.com)

With sales of three million albums worldwide and a reputation for spectacular live performances, in 2009, The Verve Pipe was approached to submit a new track for a compilation album of children’s songs. That session inspired A Family Album, an original collection of songs intended for the entire family, with fun and inventive lyrics set to the memorable melodies the band is known for.  Adding the artwork of Kate Cosgrove, gives the CD a lovely whimsical element to the cover and liner notes.

In 1996, RCA Records released their award-winning debut album, Villains, featuring their signature inventive arrangements, soul-searching lyrics and layered vocal. Their follow-up release, the critically acclaimed self-titled LP The Verve Pipe, featured ‘Hero,’ a Top 15 hit at Modern Rock radio. Their most recent album for adults, Underneath, produced the singles ‘Happiness Is’ and ‘Never Let You Down,’ one of the most played songs for Adult Top 40 and Modern A/C radio that year. The album also included ‘Colorful,’ the emotive ballad featured in the film and soundtrack Rock Star, starring Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston and also co-starring lead singer Brian Vander Ark in his first major film role.

These guys have performed sold-out concert throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia, been featured in Spin and Rolling Stone and videos on MTV and VH1, TV appearances (The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Late Night With David Letterman) and a stellar guest DJ appearance on the Hilltown Family Variety Show!

The Verve Pipe is currently on tour performing both old favorites as well as music from the new album for adults and kids of all ages.
