Biography

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 (including Lois Lane, an all-female cover band, as well as her own original rock band, Red Onion) and struggling to write original music.

I have two daughters, age 6 and 2. We stumbled upon Laurie's music on Noggin a few years ago, and have been adding her albums to our collection since that time. I can hardly express how this music fills me with joy. I watch my children dancing around the living room to Fast and Slow - they call to me to join them, and then all three of us are spinning around the living room. There is something different about this; we have music by Raffi, Steve and Greg, etc. and at the very best, I can tolerate it. Still, if any music by those other artists pops up on my iPod during my daily commute, I can't get to the controls quickly enough to skip the music. When Laurie comes on, I not only leave it along, but I sing along and usually feel happier by the time the song is over.

For fans of previous Laurie Berkner albums - this continues in the tradition of her previous efforts - inventive lyrics and great, catchy tunes. I would say that the overall production on the album is a notch above previous efforts, and that the songs have a slighly more mature feel without losing Laurie's unique understanding of a child's heart. There are 5 songs that will instantly take their place among your favorite children's tunes: Rocketship Run, Candy Cane Jane, Fast and Slow, Mouse in My Toolbox, and All Around My Room.

There is something very special about an artist who can create and perform music that is technically sophisticated, inventive, occasionally hilarious, and doesn't talk down to kids. A treasure for my whole family, for the preschool children I know and work with, and highly, highly recommended.

Children's music requires the same caliber of intelligent professionalism, originality, and performance standards as does music for adult audiences. The Laurie Berkner Band (consisting of Laurie Berkner in collaboration with Susie Lampert and Adam Bernstein) flawlessly perform and record twenty-four new songs (and in the case of Going on a Hunt in four different musical styles) range from a Brazilian samba to an Irish jig, to a folk song set against a gospel/country background. Lively vocals based on 'kid friendly' melodies (that will also have an immense and immediate appeal to their parents), this masterfully produced and enthusiastically recommended CD album showcases Going on a Hunt-ska (1:11); Mouse in My Toolbox (2:17); Candy Cane Jane (3:07); All Around My Room (1:30); One More Stop on the Train (2:15); Going On a Hunt - blues (1:04); Jump and Fly (2:31); Pigbasket (2:06); Five Day's Old (3:05); Mr. Bassman - and Piano Girl (2:33); Winter Lullaby (2:34); Let's Samba (2:39); Going on a Hunt - conga (1:11); My Blue Sailboat (2:31); Balance Beam (2:04); thunderstorm (2:08); Fast and Slow (2:22); Going on a Hunt - jig (1:10); Farm Song (2:32); Nona (1:29); Walk Along the River (3:16); Going on a Hunt - hand jive (1:43); Fly Me to the Moon (2:44); and the title piece, Rocketship Run (2:24).

To the person who complained about the packaging looking cheap - this was a conscious choice because it is better for the environment than using the "classic" plastic jewel case.

We are BIG Laurie Berkner fans in our house. We have her DVD and all of her CDs to date, so of course we were excited to see this one come out and I got it for my daughter for Christmas. To be honset, I was EXTREMELY dissapointed with this CD. Laurie only writes half of the songs, her bandmates write the others, and it shows. The quality is not as high as her other albums. You can definately hear the difference in the lyrics, flow of the song, and style of music that the songs are written by less experienced musicians. My other problem with this CD is "We're going on a Hunt" is on the CD multiple times. Even my almost 4 year old picked up on it, and she found it just as annoying as I did. "Why is Laurie singing this song again?" she asks when we play the cd. I would not buy this CD unless you are a die hard Laurie fan and *have* to have the entie collection. Stick to her earlier CDs. Either that or dowload the songs you want if they are available individually. This CD will wear on your nerves very quickly.

I bought this cd for my 5 year old and 13 month old daughters. It was our first Laurie Berkner cd and our last as my five year old begged me to "never play it again." The song "Going on a Hunt" repeats throughout the cd - the theme being an ongoing treasure hunt - but it is very wearing. The remaining songs aren't particularly interesting and have the same wearing quality as the treasure hunt song.

We love her earlier CD (Victor Vito) but this one just didn't interest my girl. Not sure if it was the topic(she is a tomboy so I doubt it) or the style. But we fast-forwarded through each song, quickly determining that this wasn't the CD for her. Went back to the earlier recording and she's singing along again.

My son (4) enjoys watching Laurie Berkner on tv and so I got this cd for him... none of the songs looked familiar to me so I was a little worried that he might not like it as much as the songs he knows from seeing them on tv. No need to worry.... HE LOVED IT! He now has all these songs memorized and he takes it to his daycare on a regular basis so he can share it with his class and it's become a classroom favorite as well.

The best part is that this band makes really great music that can be enjoyed by adults as well. It doesn't get old or annoying. It's fun to dance to and the lyrics are fun, silly and positive. I would recommend this for any family looking for music that they can enjoy together.
