Six Remastered LAURIE BERKNER Albums Set for June Digital Release...

Written by

On June 16th, Razor & Tie will distribute six "themed" digital albums from children's recording artist and preschool TV favorite Laurie Berkner. Personally curated by Berkner from her own archives, each album focuses on a particular theme in support of teachers and other grownups looking for help with a specific topic. Laurie Berkner's Animal SongsLaurie Berkner's Classroom FavoritesLaurie Berkner's Food Songs, Laurie Berkner's Movement SongsLaurie Berkner's Nature Songs, and Laurie Berkner's Transportation Songs  will all be available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and more.

"I know, from being a preschool music teacher and a parent, how often I have found myself searching for good songs about a particular subject. I wanted to make that search easier, so I created six remastered, themed albums using my previously-recorded, original songs. It was so fun to go through them all and watch the topics I write about the most emerge! I hope that through these curated albums, longtime fans will rediscover favorite songs, and new families will find themselves becoming longtime fans!"Laurie Berkner

Songs from six of The Laurie Berkner Band's CDs are represented: Whaddaya Think of That? (1997); Buzz Buzz (1998); Victor Vito (1999); Under A Shady Tree (2002); Rocketship Run (2008); and the DVD/CD Party Day! (2011).  Because Laurie's remastered, themed collections are digital downloads, the music is available at a substantial savings over the cost of purchasing physical CDs.
