When I heard there was going to be a new album from The Laurie Berkner Band, I was over the moon! This mommy has been rocking along with Laurie since 2000! Each of my kids knows every song, as do my husband and I. We are just huge fans. Superhero features all new songs and it is fantastic!
About:Jam-packed with 21 freshly composed Laurie Berkner originals plus two "bonus" tracks, Superhero is indeed the album Laurie's fans have been waiting for. With music ranging from quiet, a capella finger plays to get-up-and-dance full band anthems, this is Laurie Berkner at her absolute best.
Says Laurie Berkner, "I wrote Superhero thinking about many things that I found fun as a kid, and I'm so thrilled to have such wonderful guests to share that fun, including superstar crown prince of reggae, Ziggy Marley, super musical yogini Kira Willey, and our own superbassman, Brady Rymer, who gets a special slot up front in addition to his regular vocal and instrumental contributions as a member of The Laurie Berkner Band.
Superhero soars through a spectrum of musical styles, including '60s pop, rootsy rock, lullabies, reggae, Latin, and more. As fans have come to expect, all of Laurie Berkner's songs on Superhero speak to kids without talking down to them, through imaginative lyrics that both enchant and empower.
Laurie explains, "To me, Superhero is about self-empowerment -- being our best selves and discovering the superhero in all of us."

This album has become my new favorite. When I Woke Up Today really feels like Laurie telling us how much she enjoys being a child entertainer. The lyrics tell of the love and excitement of singing and sharing the fun. Swing Me is a beautiful song about swinging on a swingset. I just love the harmony on this one. It is stunning. The album brings us so many wonderful new songs and they are all brilliant editions to our music collection.
