Erin Lee & Marci''s debut CD features 12 original songs and poems about the everyday events in children''s lives. Each song has as its narrator a strong, self-assured child who offers an honest and often comical appraisal of the world around them - a world full of school, loose teeth, rainy days, haircuts, baseball, illness, non-traditional families, dinnertimes and sometimes even loneliness.
Erin Lee & Marci are joined by guest artist Jennifer Barnhart, who is best known for her role as Cleo Lion on the PBS children''s show "Between the Lions". Ms. Barnhart can now be seen in the Tony-winning Broadway Musical "Avenue Q".
Marci and Erin Lee have been performing together since 1999 in and around New York City for both adults and children alike, as a duo and as part of larger theater shows.
They currently co-teach a theater program for elementary school students for whom much of their music was originally created. Realizing the need for songs both funny and thoughtful that reflected a child''s everyday life, they began writing. The result is their debut CD "Someone''s Gotta Wanna Play".
