My son, Ben Brown, is a musician. I have a picture of him using a wooden spoon, standing on a foot stool, directing a CD of Mozart when he was two. He has music in his bones. At fourteen I gave him a guitar and lessons for his birthday and in the nine years since, he has been creating and making music.

In his band, Vanishing Apollo, he writes much of the music and lyrics, although is it also a collaborative effort with the other members of the band.  Their latest CD includes a variety of songs but this might be one of my favorites: You and the Things You Do (did I mention he is the singer?)
