rhythm, encourages physical play and prompts young listeners to exercise their imaginations within a
musical framework of family and friendship." - Lynne Heffley ©2015 Parents' Choice

National Parenting Product Awards: “Seston succeeds in doing something slyly ambitious . . . Tackling
fears, in fact, is an underlying mission of this album, and Seston should be commended for offering children
some insights on how to deal with these common anxieties in his set of friendly, warm-hearted songs.”
Tillywig Toy & Media Award: "Tim Seston is a skilled and imaginative musical storyteller whose songs
amuse and uplift even as they provide genuine insight into how to remain happy while in the midst of
common childhood challenges. . . . The album's unusually pleasing mix of acoustic instrumentation delivers
one sonic delight after another, bluegrass- and Americana-tinged tunes that get kids up on their feet,
joyfully singing along while moving and grooving to the irresistible rhythms!"
Creative Child 2018 CD of the Year: "Tim Seston is a musical cheerleader - telling stories through song in
a warm, engaging style. His third CD showcases his award-winning talents as he tackles childhood
challenges while celebrating creativity and imagination."
"On a Roll brings those fears and frustrations to the forefront in a folksy, genial manner. A tambourine may
not be a guitar, but it’s good enough to allow Luke Seston to be part of his father’s world of music. And On
a Roll provides an introduction for the rest of us." - Geek Dad Music Reviews by Jeffrey Cohen
Tim and Luke were On a Roll throughout 2018.

|Songs from Who I Am were first performed
on stage at Camp Pok-O-MacCready
Once in a Lifetime (2017) and The Rock (2018)
Below are excerpts from Tim Singer's Review of Once in a Lifetime
Roles are played out on stage, so that, we as audience can find
pieces of ourselves up there; connecting us to the story.
John’s performance was exciting and over-the-top. A perfect
attitude for his character,Teddy,who wishes that he could fly. John
took on his first solo ever in a show which was his camp acting
debut. The song “Zig-Zag Hiking Blues” was already a camp
favorite by the time the show began
Nora had a particularly simple, yet connected performance as the
shy girl . . . There, she was joined in song with Kate and Shea; a
nice soft melody about inclusion. This theme revealed itself as the
goal for the play and of the campers in it.
All types of campers with plenty of different backgrounds were
included into the performance, including Pok-O’s spirited and
wheelchair capable camper Luke, who delivered his repeated line “I
don’t care” with the comedic timing of a professional.
In my keynote address at the Children's Music
Network New England Conference in May of 2018,
(photo by Liz Buchanan) I shared my own history with
particular focus on two individuals:
The first was my mother, Louisa Page, (social worker,
lawyer, & Episcopal priest) who passed on from this
world far too early in the summer of 2002.
The second is my son, Luke, who started learning
piano when he was 4 years old. He lives with
cerebral palsy and so experiences the world
differently than his peers. As his father, so do I.
Together we enjoy this musical journey.
|As a musical storyteller, my goal is to both entertain and connect with my audience. Song writing is an ongoing process. Ideas come from many different
sources, at all times of the day, and in many different places. I started my career writing stories about children I knew - family, friends, and others in my
community. The stories are works of fiction but they include facts about real people, memories from my own childhood, and thoughts about how I see the
world. Some of my stories turn into songs. Some of these songs make it into my everyday repertoire and are shared with families at various performances.
Some of these songs, make it onto albums. Here to Play (2014), On a Roll (2018), and Who I Am (2019) are all commercially available and can be
listened to on a number of musical platforms. Scroll down to learn more about each of these albums. Wake the Imagination (2013) was the first album I
produced as a collection of 16 stories - I have written music for many of these stories and occasionally play them as songs on Facebook Live.
Discovery in Rhyme, Animal Adventures, Good to be Four, Playing Together, and Time To Choose are all collections of songs and stories that I have
organized by theme. Some songs have made their debut on YouTube, as part of a show, or in my living room. They are waiting for their turn to shine.
