Key Wilde & Mr Clarke

I hadn’t heard of Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke before, but when we received their album with endearing artwork of animals on the cover, I was already looking forward to hearing this new “Animal Tales” CD.  Often a theme in their music, this album is all about animals!

This is the fourth album from Key Wilde and Mr Clarke, an award-winning music duo.  They have been producing and performing children’s music for years, sure to be a hit with your whole family.

I was very interested to learn about the background of these two artists.  Mr. Clarke is a high school science and special education teacher. Wilde is known for not only his music, but also for his illustrations, which have appeared in newspapers, magazines, Avanti greeting cards and children’s books, and even created the Wildlife Wonders! Exhibit for the Central Park Conservancy!  He also designs and illustrates media for The Woodlands Wildlife Refuge , such as “The Bear Song,” which introduces all eight species of bears, that was shown at an  international conference.  I love that the same cover that drew me to this album was also created by one of the artists.

The songs on this album are packed with animal-themed songs.  There are lots of animal sounds (authentic and mimicked), as well as their movements (such as lots of ‘hop hop hopping’ in “Frog Fiesta”).  These songs are engaging and fun, and your kids can have fun moving along with their favorite animals.

The music on this CD is fun, catchy, and upbeat, with a folksy, bluegrass sort of sound to it.  The acoustics blend smoothly with the vocals, creating lots of great harmonies and makes it easy (perhaps irresistable) to sing along with.

Each song has it’s own personality, from the “dark” and twangy “Alligator Get-Together”, to the “jolly good” Bombadier Beetle song which has a distinct English accent.  Armando Armadillo is reminiscent of a Mexican mariachi song, with a “cuidado” to Armando!

I enjoy listening to this CD with the kids, and the songs stick with me.  I look forward to playing this in the car to pass the time – this CD puts me in a good mood!
