Best-selling, award-winning children’s musician Laurie Berkner has been a longtime fixture on TV’s Nick Jr. and Sprout channels. Listeners to SiriusXM Radio’s Kids Place Live channel know Laurie as the popular host of Laurie Berkner’s Instant Party! and Laurie Berkner’s Garden: Eat, Play, Grow. Her original songs, albums (nine so far), DVDs, music videos, and books leave no doubt: Laurie Berkner is the uncrowned queen of children’s music and the power behind the progressive “kindie rock” movement.
