Zev Bio Here are just a few of the things music critics have to say about Zev's award-winning songs:
• "A great collection of simple but eclectic tunes that almost defy categorization." • "The hottest school dance party in the land." • "Really silly Learning." And Zev's songs are precisely where a bio of Zev should start. Zev has dedicated his professional life to writing and performing totally original, totally fun, shake-what-your-mama-gave-you children's and family music. He draws upon his training in classical and jazz music, his college major in Ethnomusicology and his extensive world travels to create one-of-a-kind performance that celebrate the joys of daily life and tickle the imagination. Zev's mission is simple but profound: to make the world more musical, and to inspire a life-long love of music and movement. Through his CDs and his uncanny ability to connect with kids during approximately 350 performances every year, he's doing just that. Zev is a talented multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, banjo, piano, berimbau, didgeridoo. A one-man-band for the new millennium, Zev not only writes all of his songs, he also sings and plays almost all of the instruments on his CDs. He produces his CDs, too. The critical and commercial acclaim Zev receives is equal to the passion of his fans. His latest disc, Chicken Scratch, won two Children's Music Web awards--one for best recording for preschoolers aged 3-5 and another for best song for preschoolers aged 0-5. His song--El Quacko--made it to number one on the XM radio charts. Zev lives in Westchester, NY, with his wife Melissa and daughters Lucy and Daphne.
