Uncle Neptune's old timey ditties have been affectionaly described as a cross between Kermit the Frog and Tiny Tim. After a long 7 year absence from the web, Happy Puppy Records is re-issuing the first Uncle Neptune album with the permission of the Uncle Neptune estate, with further albums in the catalog to come.
After releasing his first album in 2001, Uncle Neptune received some notable national attention thanks to Richardson's Roundup on CBC Radio One. Then in 2005 the world found out about the wonderful music thanks to a mention on the popular site Boing Boing.
Uncle Neptune retired from the internet in 2006, never to be heard from since. We thought this was a terrible shame that nearly a generation of internet users never got to hear any of his delightful and timeless songs (save for one track appearing on a Kazoomzoom compilation).
But recently Lee Rosevere at Happy Puppy tracked down sources close to Uncle Neptune (thanks Billyblob!) and we are preparing to release as much as Neptune's music as possible, beginning with his debut album.
Please enjoy this music and share it with your friends, and if you do, it would make the world a better place if you would visit Jamie Ward's bandcamp page and support him and his current projects, and it would make Uncle Neptune very happy.

The word "Maranatha" is an Aramaic phrase found in the New Testament of the Bible meaning "Our Lord, come!", "Come, O Lord" or "Our Lord has come".
Rainbow in the cloud symbolizes the everlasting covenant which God established with Noah and every living creature on the earth (Genesis 9).
The melody on the rainbow-like music staff is the tune of my favorite song by the legendary Christian worship leader/music director/composer Don Moen - "God will make a way", a song which I always recall whenever trials and difficulties come into my life.
Music is created by God and for God! We are created to worship our Creator God everyday, and we are going to sing and make music and praise and worship Him for eternity in heaven! I always wonder and tell myself: I better learn to play music better and pick up more tricks on earth now cos next time in heaven I'm going to play and worship God for eternity! I hope I can give my best to Him and hopefully don't play too many wrong notes :p
Newly established in 2010, formerly known as Echo Music, Maranatha Music School focuses on training and educating students in the area of music which includes instrument-playing, music expression, music creation and improvisation. We focus on the fundamentals of music and we believe in the importance of music theory training which in turn will help musicians greatly in their practical playing.
Lastly, let me share with you one of my favorite verses from Psalm 98:4-6:
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth,burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram's horn - shout for joy before the LORD, the King.
