Press Reviews

Uncle Devin's Drum Tales!

"Uncle Devin's Drum Tales takes an innovative and progressive approach to music, self-awareness, confidence and fun, and is a wonderful album that children, parents and educators will all find beneficial."

I Give it 5 Tiny Fingers Up!

(Uncle Devin's) music is rather productive with varied vocals, spoken segments, varied percussion, multi-ethnic musical styles, and great lyrics. This one will be a favorite for parents, but the children will get a bigger kick out of the music. I give it five tiny fingers up!”

Everything a children’s entertainer should be!

Indiemunity.com

“Uncle Devin is everything a children’s entertainer should be. Always engaging, never lacking in energy and full to the brim with fun. The former youth counselor is interested in educating young children from everything to the Bible through to good health and hygiene. It’s the album you want your child to listen to. Uncle Devin’s kind voice always praises and never preaches. Ultimately, Uncle Devin’s Drum Tales is like a vitamin for children. It guarantees a healthy dose of happiness and a good shot self-esteem.”

 

Percussion for Children at it's best!

Good Vibes Music

“If you have ever doubted the role percussion and drums play within modern music, look no further than Drum Tales! to reassure you of its importance. This children’s album is the handiwork of musician Devin Walker, who goes by the title Uncle Devin for this release. His goal is to produce live shows in order to teach children valuable lessons through the form of music, and he seems to do just that. Since his musical expertise lies within the drum family, he has created an album that relies heavily on drum and percussion instruments including regular and electronic drum sets, maracas, and triangles. 4 stars out of 5

Uncle Devin Loves Kids!

“The Uncle Devin Show is pure edutainment at its finest. Bringing a message of love while sharing helpful life knowledge. The content of his songs covers everything from having a bad day, to proper eating habits, to staying out of trouble so you can focus on the more important things. Devin’s musical background and excellent musicianship shines through on each song. He is able to find a balance between catchy grooves, memorable melodies, and life lessons every child needs to hear. He has one of the most creative websites I have seen in a while so be sure to check that out.”hat's this item about? What makes it interesting?"
