Following the success of “Hey Billy Backpack” - Dogmatic Music’s theme song for the mascot of Illawarra Children’s Services (ICS) transition to school program – Dogmatic Music was commissioned by ICS in 2010 to produce an album of songs for preschool to infants children. Under the name “The Rockalots”, the album, “Blast Off”, has been a hit with children Australia wide. The title track “We Rockalot” made top 10 in the Children’s Category in the 2010 Australian Songwriters’ Competition. The Rockalots have performed at several local festivals and never fails to get the crowd moving!

Our song ‘Turn Down the Heat’ has recently been used by a number of groups internationally to draw attention to the effect of climate change and rising sea levels on our Pacific neighbours. Check out the song being performed at the end of this video prepared by UNICEF to promote the 2011 “State of the World’s Children Report”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6DpVzRU1Iw
The song was also performed at the Welcoming Ceremony of the Tarawa Climate Change Conference where it was reported that the song’s “relevance and power was referred to by delegates several times during the deliberations”.
