Local musician and creator of the viral Self Pop Tart blog, Kevin Hanley, recently put his tech-savvy skills to work again to create the silly and sweet cartoon, Sire for Hire. It’s about a king, Sire, who loses his crown and winds up in all kinds of adventures with his companion, Wizard. Life lessons are learned and songs are sung, including the lovely “Tide” by Royal Tinfoil’s Brad Edwardson. Mechanical River’s Joel Hamilton and Punks & Snakes’ Jack Burg joined the collaborative project by providing the voices. There are more adorable sing-alongs and comical travels to come this spring.
