“Gary Powell on Your Grocerâ€™s Shelf” 2002 Press Release(248 Word Count)
As one of the nationâ€™s preimminent composers for children, Gary Powell has reached his ultimate goal. In July, 2002 Kelloggâ€™s released, for public consumption, three million cereal boxes of â€œHunny Bâ€™sâ€ and three million cereal boxes of â€œBuzz Blastsâ€. The â€œBuzz Blastsâ€ cereal box contains a single CD with two Powell songs which he produced for Kelloggâ€™s, Disney and Pixar. The â€œHunny Bâ€™sâ€ cereal box contains two more Powell songs which were produced for Kelloggâ€™s and Disney.Powell â€˜s musical style suggests a long association with cereal. No one knows exactly what that means, however, with what seems to be the musicianâ€™s equivalent to being pictured on a Wheaties box, Powell notes, â€œI â€˜ve always figured Iâ€™d have songs placed in Coco Puffs or Captain Crunch, but to jump to the level of Kelloggâ€™s in my lifetime could be nothing more than a dream. My parents always said that â€˜cream rises to the topâ€™. Who would have guessed that to be literally true.â€Powell says his mission statement as a producer was first inspired when he was a child eating cereal straight from the Kelloggâ€™s box which read, â€œWe provide high quality, great tasting products for you and your family.â€ With that as his mantra, Powell has since sold over twenty million tasty musical products for familles in forty-three countries.Powell notes, â€œMost musicians think of Nashville, Los Angeles or New York as recording centers. For me it has always been Battle Creek, Michigan….the home of Kelloggâ€™sâ€
