The Beatles-influenced ‘Balloon Song’ was the first track completed for the Little Victories EP and is notable for it’s playful musical production and novelty-approach to lyrics.

Though it was released on a collection featuring rock and indie-folk tunes, the song seemed a bit too left-of-center for submission to either of those genres. On a whim I entered it into the Children’s Music category of the 20th Annual USA Songwriting Competition – resulting in a First Prize Award!
