This interview will perhaps make you smile. It might even make you cry, but it is an interview that YOU won’t want to miss. Host Lisa Smith-Putnam thoroughly enjoys speaking with Skip Haynes - CEO of The Laurel Canyon Animal Company. The Laurel Canyon Animal Company is the only record company that we know of in the world that creates music about, for and with animals. Did you catch that? They consult with the animals and THEN they make music based off of what the animals say.
Skip and his crew receive this information from an animal communicator, who actually speaks to the animals. The animals tell the communicators what they like right down to what sort of instruments, vocals and melody etc. that they want to hear. WOW-we promise you that this is a true story! We know that it sounds a bit farfetched, but take a listen and then play the music for your pet and you will be a believer as well! With this show you will fall in love with Lisa all over again, and begin a love affair with Skip Haynes. His love for animals big and small runs deep!
Skip has made music and creating music with and for animals his life passion. Your Pets My Dogs celebrate Skip and his company. Here’s another treat for you…during the show if you listen closely because Skip is a music guy, Lisa talks about a few of the superstar artists that she has had the pleasure of working with over the years. We don’t want to brag…but Lisa won’t, so we will. Have you ever heard of digital underground or Tupac Shakur? Yep-just to mention a few. That’s Lisa!
The Laurel Canyon Animal Company
The only record company in the world that creates music about, for and with animals!
LAUREL CANYON ANIMAL COMPANY was formed by owner/designer/composer Skip Haynes and Musical Director/composer/producer Dana Walden.
Located in Los Angeles, California they are animal lovers dedicated to building a bridge between humans and animals through music. Skip and Dana create music exclusively about, for and with animals — dogs in particular. We are probably the only record label in the world that uses intuitive animal communicators to act as translators for the animals whenever we can involve them directly in the musical process.
Each CD produced by the LAUREL CANYON ANIMAL COMPANY is devoted to a particular kind of animal or species. Each track is devoted to a particular concern, situation or shared experience of the people who love those animals or the animals themselves.
The LAUREL CANYON ANIMAL COMPANY utilizes the writing, production and conceptual talents of animal loving writers, producers, artists, communicators, animators, musicians, poets –and of course, animals from all over the world.
