Mary Kaye has combined her extensive experience in music, theatre and education to achieve critical acclaim as a singer/songwriter and musical performing artist for children. The Los Angeles Daily News writes, "Maine musician Kaye writes wonderful songs that nail the details of a child's experience and imagination." Parenting Magazine says of Mary's music, "Her songs, at once silly and melodious, provide an insider look at kid culture." Booklist comments, "Children will be immediately drawn to Mary Kaye's appealing, strong, and rich voice...Kaye's sensitive lyrics reflect her understanding of the world from a child's point of view." Mary's music has won national awards (Publisher's Weekly Listen-Up Award, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award, Dr. Toy Smart Play/Smart Toy Product of Excellence, The Children's Music Web Award, and the National Parenting Publications Award Honors.) Mary's CDs have been played on radio shows for children across the United States and in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
The first time we listened to Music Box, we simply thought the songs were fun, different, and folk-influenced. But the more we listened to it, the more we realized how Mary Kaye has a knack for creating a fantasy-world through her songs, which describe fairies, robots, birds, animals, and more.
My favorite track, Tasting Tea, is such a funny, tongue-twisting song! How she can sing that song without messing up is beyond me!
Little Music Man’s favorite track is Bug, a song which tells of a bug trapped in a kept. He kept on singing “ug, ug, ug…” and I think it’s a cute song too!
Mary Kaye’s Music Box is a CD filled with unique songs that may be like nothing you ever heard before. Her songs tell playful stories that tickle children’s imaginations and are fun for the whole family to listen to!
