Hey, Seattle! Chris Ballew Needs Your Help Making A Song!

First there were millions of peaches, lumps and kitties. Now there are googly eyes, butterflies driving trucks and stomping bears.

What could possibly be next from Chris Ballew of the Presidents of the United States of America you ask?

It’s up to you, Seattle. Chris needs your help to finish the new Caspar Babypants song “When I Was Little.” Don’t know Caspar Babypants you say? Ask the nearest five year-old—or better yet, ask their parents.

All you need to do is finish the phrase “When I Little…” with a memory from your childhood. Tweet it using #innwsong. Post it to facebook.com/innorthwest in 25 words or less. Then join Chris either in-person or virtually on Wednesday, February 13 at the IN-NW 2013 Social Media Conference to hear “our” new song—and maybe the next big evolution in Seattle music.

 

ABOUT THE SOCIAL MUSIC EXPERIMENT

The social music experiment is a collaboration between the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and Chris Ballew as part of the IN-NW Social Media Conference. While participation in the experiment is open, those who take part may be asked to sign this release.

Questions? Contact Christina Donegan.
