Laurie Berkner

Recognized as “the queen of children’s music” (People), Laurie Berkner is a singer, songwriter, lyricist, author, and founder of Two Tomatoes Records. She has released twelve bestselling, award-winning albums, was the first recording artist ever to perform in music videos on Nick Jr., and appeared regularly on the network’s Jack’s Big Music Show. Laurie helped develop the short-form animated series, Sing It, Laurie!, on the twenty-four-hour preschool television channel Sprout, and has written music and lyrics for three Off-Broadway children’s musicals. A project close to her heart has been designing the curriculum and training teachers for Laurie Berkner’s The Music in Me, an early childhood music program based on her music and classroom philosophy.
