TULSA, OK -- A budding Tulsa musician has devised a grassroots marketing campaign for his debut CD. It's CD marketing on a budget. The youngster is getting the word out about his music by attaching fliers to telephone poles.
Five-year-old Noah Lambert's debut CD features him playing the harmonica over some bluesy background. He calls one song Noah Blues.
As usual there is more to this than just a five year old blowing on his harmonica. The story started back in January, a snow day out of pre-school, and a trip to this favorite sledding spot.
"He sledded all the way down to the bottom and hit one of those hundred year old trees," said Cherie French.
He fractured his skull and while in the hospital recovering from surgery, a little girl friend brought him a harmonica. He loved playing to whatever accompaniment he could find. His parents recorded his playing.
They made only one copy, but then thought it would be cool if they could sell some. They thought $10 would be a fair price.
"If we didn't get any bites, we'd adjust the price," said Cherie French.
They printed up some fliers and spent a day during spring break putting them up.
Music aside, Noah sure has the entrepreneurial spirit he'll need to be successful at whatever he does.
Look for Noah Lambert's music advertised on telephone poles and in businesses throughout the Brookside area.
