San Diego Creator reveals Emme Town with website and three songs from Emme Town’s album, Epic Kids Songs – Volume 1
On Friday the 13th, Marc Emmelmann’s Emme Town went live with his Emme Town website (www.BabySongs.Productions) and debuted the first three of thirteen songs from Epic Kids Songs ~ Volume 1. Three songs will be released over the next three weeks, with updates on Emme Town’s Facebook page. Emme Town singers include San Diego artists — Christopher Chiles, Laura Bueno, Shaun Tuazon and Teri Wilder.
Emme Town’s three debut songs include:
- “The Friendship Song” Sung by Ballerina (Teri Wilder)
- “Epic Row Your Boat” Sung by Thinker (Christopher Chiles)
- “Days of the Week” Sung by Jester (Shaun Tuazon)
“Friday the 13th, take that,” Emme Town posted on Facebook. Why?
“We love putting a positive spin on irrelevant song lyrics, so we thought we’d share some of that same spirit with the launch of Emme Town. Let’s take a day filled with negativity and put some positive good energy towards it, ” Creator Marc Emmelmann shared.
After the songs and music, the coolest thing about Emme Town is the precious townspeople: Jester, Fairy Godmother, Ballerina and Thinker. The townspeople, illustrated by San Diego illustrator Terry Lee, each have a backstory (SEE BELOW) to share, and a message to emphasize with their songs. If you pay attention to their outfits, you’ll notice their special emblems! Can you guess them before reading on?

One of the songs on Emme Town’s first album, Epic Kids Songs – Volume 1, is “The Twirling Song.” It is written by San Diego songwriter Teri Wilder, to the beloved melody of the “Ring Around The Rosie,” which is known for controversial lyrics. Emmelmann shares, “Whether or not the lyrics are as eerie as some suggest, the song just doesn’t make sense! I was inspired to give new life to this melody through Emme Town, and with Teri Wilder’s help, we’ve done it!
“The Twirling Song” has lyrics that are fun, relevant, and encourage movement!” -Teri WilderPreview Songs at Emme Town
