“Kansas City’s favorite singing mama!” KC Parent Magazine


“Funky Mama [is] a fun, guitar-playing musician whom our daughters hold in the same high regard as Santa, the ice cream man and their own, not-so-funky mama.”
– Kansas City Star

“Funky Mama’s throaty vocals aren’t the type that can be sung by just anyone. Her rich voice has a rock ‘n blues strength to it that recalls the likes of Bonnie Raitt and Sheryl Crow…(She is) armed with a fire-engine red electric guitar and one extraordinary pair of vocal cords...” – 435 South Magazine

KANSAS CITY, MO (June 16) – Independent children’s recording artist Krista “Funky Mama” Eyler announces the September 2 release of her highly anticipated third studio CD, ‘Moo Juice’ (Funky Mama Music, $12.00, run time 36:30). The disc features 17 dynamic Funky Mama originals and arrangements showcasing a voice that kids’ music authority Bill Childs calls “rich, soulful, and bluesy.”
As an on-air reporter for Kansas City ABC affiliate KMBC-TV Channel 9 News, Krista Tatschl Eyler earned an Emmy nomination, covering everything from fires to homicides to tornados. After five years of this intense, on-the-edge life, she became the ultimate crossover artist - “Funky Mama” - singing for kids in a bold, straightforward, funk/soul style that’s imbued a strong sense of narrative phrasing and dynamite energy!

A favorite among families in Kansas City, Funky Mama scored national recognition when she performed at the 2007 White House Easter Egg Roll in Washington, D.C. Only a handful of nationally recognized entertainers nationwide are invited to play “the Roll” each year.

On ‘Moo Juice,’ Eyler’s powerful blues drenched voice sounds like she would be right at home anywhere: singing with any of the great soul singers of the ‘60s, creating stunning dialogue with a flute in a stylish calypso, taking the stage at the Grand Ole Opry, singing folksy jug band standards, belting one out with the best of Louisiana’s Zydeco bands, or soaring over the top of a mesmerizing up-tempo gospel group. Mostly though, Funky Mama’s music is just plain fun.

‘Moo Juice’ is energy personified. Funky Mama sings with an intrinsically deep rhythmic sense that urges on all her terrific back-up musicians. Her internal rhythm is especially noticeable on “Down, Down, Baby” and “Can You Hear Me?” where Krista Eyler sings a capella, backed by the rhythmically tightest group of kids on record. Rhythm is what gets kids’ attention, and this CD is loaded with it. Krista offers refreshingly down home, powerful singing for a generation of kids who don’t often get to hear vocalists with the ability to project their voices while still retaining clarity of diction. Krista has a big voice, and it’s always easy to understand the lyrics.

Other ‘Moo Juice’ highlights include “No Sleep Tonight” (smokin’ fast-piano-vocal-driven gospel), “Sippy” (a sippy cup song that’s straight-up “Southern Rock”), “My Dad Rocks” (a minor key samba), and the album’s title track (up-tempo rock ‘n’ roll, graced by Tulsa Read’s soulful harmonica solos). As is appropriate for a CD to be released just before Grandparents’ Day, ‘Moo Juice’ also includes “The Grandparent Name Song,” a Beach Boys-esque tune in which Funky Mama ruminates on the many different ways to name a grandparent.

Says Krista Eyler, “I’ve been singing in musical theatre and playing guitar since I was 15. I started performing for kids in 2005, when I saw that there was a niche to be filled. After I had my first son, I became aware that there were some great ‘dad’ acts out there, but no Funky Mamas! What I want most is to teach kids is to love music and dancing with their whole hearts, just as I do.”

Krista “Funky Mama” Eyler’s previous CDs include ‘Funky Mama Sings: Giggle Jiggle’ (2005) and ‘Grandma’s House’ (2006). Krista Eyler is also the author of a children’s book, ‘Funky Mama''s Grandma''s House’ (2007).

Funky Mama is the real thing, with two funky boys and a funky daddy to show for it.

‘Moo Juice’ will be available online at https://www.tradebit.com, https://www.tradebit.com, and iTunes.
