Parents' Choice Award winning new CD, 'Bubble Ride,' to be Nationally Released on October 2!!!  Pre-release copies available now

Hi there, friends!  Thanks for checking out our website! Big news of the day: We were just informed this week that we are mentioned in the October issue of Parenting Magazine!!!  The most mind-boggling quote that makes me laugh heartily: "If you like Katy Perry, then you will like Vanessa Trien and the Jumping Monkeys."  I've never quite made that connection before, but so be it! : ). We are also super excited that we won a Parents' Choice Silver award as well!

On behalf of the whole Jumping Monkeys Band, I am delighted to inform you that our brand new CD, 'Bubble Ride,' will be officially released on October 2, 2012!  What does this mean, exactly?  It means that all the media attention we are getting is is pointing to that exciting date (do you hear the drum roll?). It also means that October 2 is the day that Bubble Ride becomes available for sale on iTunes, Amazon (you can already do pre-orders there), Spotify and other online retailers.  

BUT, a lot of local fans have been asking how to purchase a copy if they can't come to our shows. As of today, you CAN purchase pre-release copies at CDBABY.COM!!!!! See the link below. You can purchase as a hold-in-your-hands CD or as a full-album digital download or individual song downloads.  Or just go to the "music and shop" page on my website and you'll see the CD for sale there.  Hurray hurray!

Thanks so much for your interest!  Always feel free to share your thoughts with me and the band at  
All the very best,
