Our kids are bananas for kindie artist Laurie Berkner. We're psyched that she's got a bunch of upcoming dates on the calendar in NYC and she's teaming up with a hip brand to give youngsters a way to give back.
Laurie Berkner has been a professional musician since 1992, but her success as a children’s recording artist was a surprise to her. “It was so unexpected,” says Laurie. “I’d been performing in rock bands and struggling to write original music. Writing music for kids has not been a struggle at all. The more I started working on material for children, the more I realized that it opened up creativity in me that I never knew I had.”
Laurie's touring to promote her latest CD Best of the Laurie Berkner Band. Out favorites? Pig on the Head and I Really Love to Dance (because we do). And here's even better news, Laurie and the trendy shoe company Umi Shoes will be collecting slightly used shoes from her audiences for the charitable organization, Soles for Soles. If you haven't had the opportunity to see Laurie in concert with your children, please get your tickets early because Laurie sells out quickly. Here are her upcoming concerts:
