Christopher Pennington is a singer, songwriter and producer who has produced over 200 albums, and published well over 300 original songs in the children's music market. 

He began working in the children’s music field with Direct Source Special Products in
1998; producing their entire children’s catalogue (Kids Direct, Kids Mix, Baby Notes & others), which had combined sales in excess of 5 million units sold worldwide. 

In 2003, he was approached by KIDZUP (a major children’s music label), to take over
the production of their children’s music catalogue.  He went on to write, produce and
engineer over 100 CDs for their children’s music catalogue, working under the nom de
plume ‘Fat Al Davis’.  These CDs were written for the mass market and for the more
specialized field of educational music in both English and French. 

He continues to produce music for KIDZUP, as well as writing and producing music for television and others.  Currently he is producing an entirely new line of children’s educational music for a new company which will launch this year. His style has no limits, having written in the genres of jazz, folk, country, techno, hip hop, calypso and funk to name just a few.
