Brian Vogan is a songwriter, performer and early childhood music educator in Seattle, Washington. He teaches music to infant through preschool aged children and the songs he writes are directly inspired by the interests and ideas of the children he educates.His debut release, Little Songs, was hailed by critics as one of the best children's CDs of 2008 and received a best of the decade nod by Wired Magazine's blog, GeekDad . With his sophomore release, Sing a Little Song, Brian Vogan and his Good Buddies returned with their unique formula of fun, engaging, and eclectic tunes that feature lyrical themes relevant to children and musicianship that the whole family can enjoy.

In early 2012, the Good Buddies released their third album Born to Wiggle, a lively collection of thirteen original songs. This summer, the Good Buddies will be releasing their fourth and most ambitious album to date, Let's Go.
“Brian Vogan and his Good Buddies are incredibly talented musicians, singing songs with great, amusing lyrics, and a fabulous sound as well.
