‘Let’s Be Brave Together” is first single from newly minted Children’s music label, Dreamboat Records. The label will be run by the Dutch Records crew out of Portland Oregon and will showcase many amazing musicians side projects geared towards the kids. Dreamboat will also be releasing a children’s book/album in early 2021, stay tuned for details!

Pajama Jam is the children's music brainchild of Chris Couch (World's Finest). Chris started singing silly songs while teaching music classes in preschools around the Portland area. Over the years, Pajama Jam has evolved into a full interactive children's band, leading to performances at Northwest String Summit and Beltane music festivals, among others. With the idea of making children's music for adults to enjoy as well, Chris has brought the band into the studio and is currently working on the first full length Pajama Jam album.

Last fall Chris found out that Dreamboat Records was partnering up with the Children's Cancer Society. He wrote "Let's Be Brave Together" to try and help ease the fear that comes along with the uncertainty of an illness. When quarantine effectively shut down the music industry ecosystem, Chris reached out to a bunch of friends in the Portland music scene and had them all record their parts from their homes. The result was a testament to the magic that can happen when people collaborate to create something together, and a reminder that working together with one's community is important in uncertain times.

In addition to the current Pajama Jam studio project, Chris is currently working on a full-length solo album. Both albums are expected to be released next year.
