"Learn & Play, Volume 1", Beth and Scott's award-winning first CD for younger children, was in production for over five years - and for good reason! Fans can be sure that Beth and Scott have put every ounce of their creative talents behind this effort: selecting songs that will engage children at home, in the classroom or in the car. One word of warning, though - "Learn & Play" is so much fun that it makes everyone want to dance, so be careful while driving, Mom and Dad.
One of the greatest compliments Beth and Scott have received about "Learn & Play" is that it is an inclusive album. Yes, Beth and Scott's wonderful vocals and humor are in full evidence, but so are the talents of many musicians, friends and children who lent their efforts to the final product. Much of the credit for this goes to their friend and co-producer, Jeff Coplan, who is currently one of the most sought after pop songwriters and producers in the music industry. Even more important than his virtuosity at the mixing board, though, was Jeff's ability to coax fun out of all the performers on "Learn & Play". The tunes jump off the CD because every one had so much fun at Beth and Scott's studio, Homemade Soup Records. It's as if the listener is being invited into Beth and Scott's recording studio for a great party.
Beth and Scott, formerly known as "The Bierkos", have been writing and performing as a musical duo for over ten years. They perform over 200 shows per year in preschools, elementary schools, libraries and at festivals. They are a married couple who consistently garner praise from parents, educators and children for their upbeat, tuneful music and brilliant sense of what appeals to children of all ages. Now, Beth and Scott are bursting out of the New York scene in order to share their music with a wider audience and YOU can be one of the first in your circle of friends to join in the fun.
With over 100 original songs to their credit (including material appearing on Walt Disney's "Out of the Box" television program), Beth and Scott are looking forward to many years of recording for families - so stay tuned for future releases featuring songs for older children and more. Volume 2 comes out in April 2013!
