Triple Rainbow

Triple Rainbow

Through the 15 songs on their debut album You Are Magic, the trio of July Mees (9), Piper Mees (4) and their dad Jared Mees explore both the silly and sensitive sides of childhood through lighthearted, upbeat and layered songs.

Triple Rainbow (named after the inspired quote by Paul Vasquez) has an unique musical heritage and history. Jared is the co- founder of Tender Loving Empire, which has released hundreds of records over the last 15 years including five of Jared's with Jared Mees & The Grown Children. But Triple Rainbow's story goes even further back "My brother played drums for our punk band in high school, my wife Brianne and I were in a band in college called and Brianne's dad Bill, an old time rocker with Motley Crue ties played drums with me for years and recorded a couple of my records. The family band has always been a dream. It's just a lot of fun to play music with my family.

To that end, Jared and July have been making music together since July was able to talk "We sing songs all the time, at bedtime, in the car, before dinner. Sometimes they're short silly songs that we just sing once then forget about, and other times we find a song we just can't stop singing day after day" says July. The songs on You're Magic are the songs Jared and July just couldn't stop singing.

Lyrically, You Are Magic explores both the lighthearted yet layered world of a child's heart and imagination, combining clever rhyming lyrics, storytelling and lots of descriptive concrete imagery. Triple Rainbow has lots of fun on the ode to naughty cats "Bad Kitty," the gooey yet epic opus "Slime," the can't-stop-won't-stop energy of "Dance Party" and the wild road-trip story "The Lake".

Triple Rainbow exudes positivity and fun while digging deeper into emotions and issues for modern kids.The title track is a sing along anthem about the power of your imagination: "You are magic and you can be whatever you want to be / you're magic and your brain's much better than an iPad or a TV / so just close your eyes / feel it growing inside... you're magic."

Sonically, Triple Rainbow keeps one foot planted in acoustic folk and the other in driving pop-rock. "We wanted to make a record that kids would love and that their parents would look forward to putting on," says Jared "I wanted to make an album like Harry Nillson's The Point - something the whole family could agree on that was fun and catchy but also looked a bit deeper into issues modern kids face.
