Band Bio Copy –
The Little Rockers Band is all about bridging the divide between “adult music” and “kids music.” Its Indie Rock for kids – that’s Kindie Rock!
Chris & Jessie Apple started The Little Rockers Band in 2008. Both have worked extensively in their fields until teaming up in 2007 to write music for kids and their parents that mixes their unique styles. Jessie is a little bit Broadway and Chris is a little bit Rock & Roll. Rounding out the band are Liam Moroney and Billy Papenberg, who you might describe as a little bit Country and a little bit Cali. Together, they write songs that mix a strong sense of melody with jangly, funky rock rhythms. The four personalities are about as different as you could get, but somehow, their tastes combine to create some terrific tunes.
The music is an eclectic mix of styles from the 50’s to the 80’s. Uptempo Rockabilly energy mixed with gritty guitars, bouncy bass and spacey synths. The songs are written with a cool kid’s perspective and are produced in a contemporary style for parents. They take their music seriously, even though they’re all pretty silly. And we think Liam said it best in describing the band: “We may be playing songs for kids, but we write and record them so that we would love listening to them. If you write a good song, it doesn’t matter who its supposed to be for, anyone can enjoy it” There you have it.
