PARENTING MAGAZINE'S FAVORITE MUSIC CD!
"Katie and her talented band will win your kids over, even if they usually resist anything princessy. The danceable music ranges from alt-rock to bossa nova, and Katie's earthy voice is a dead ringer for Natalie Merchant's." - PARENTING MAGAZINE
"Princess Katie and Racer Steve are performers that every child and parent should get to know. This fantastic album is a must-have for every children's collection." School Library Journal
"...these guys are a serious rock-and-roll band--one that wouldn’t sound out of place opening for any current chart topper. You’ll get no artificial perk or childlike pitch from Katie’s decidedly adult singing voice, she sings FOR kids, not like them. Her vocals are an appropriate accompaniment for Racer Steve’s masterful guitar shredding: The solo on "Sneakers" might make you wonder if his last name is Van Halen." COOKIE MAGAZINE
"The Manhattan-based band entertains the whole family with funny melodies complemented by Steve’s gnarly guitar shredding and Katie’s perfect pitch." TIME OUT NEW YORK KIDS
"Each fun, upbeat song features lyrics that are spot on and teaches an important lesson..." School Library Journal
"Opening with a swinging jazz tune about holidays titled (you guessed it) "Holidays," Princess Katie & Racer Steve show that this is not your average kids' album. They proceed to blast through the metal-influenced "Sneakers," the loungey pop number "The Pillow," soulful, funky vibes of "Hot Shot" and more. The album is also peppered with some skits about jumping and dragons, entering genres usually not explored on children's albums." - NY POST
"Each track is crisp and new, and the entire composition, from lyrics to instrumentation, is simply top notch. Katie presents a strong, confident female voice. She has the whole princess shtick going (in cover art and on stage) that I would normally despise, but there's no saccharine cutesyness to her voice, just solid self-assured fun." Thingamababy
"This is an unbelieveably slick and snazzy collection of songs for kids from the duo who created the award-winning Songs for Coolest Kids. Sparkling lyrics bring a fresh twist to old ideas and Fast & Feisty offers up a variety of musical styles, that will please all ages. One wonders, how good can children’s music get?" - Nashville Parent
"The songs from Fast & Feisty, in classic Princess-Racer style, are kid-centric while being easy for parents to listen to and are a positive influence on the little listeners. That’s one of the things I love most about Katie & Steve’s music - it’s not at all preachy but always gives either a little nudge toward positive action or laughter." The Opinionated Parent
"The album features ten songs and four skits of pure musical goodness. Songs like Holidays swing, Sneakers rocks, The Pillow cha cha chas, while Go Go Go! uh, goes. And all the while, lead singer Princess Katie sings her big heart out with her perfected Natalie Merchant sound sprinkled with swirlies of Diana Krall, Edie Brickell and The Sundays." - COOL MOM PICKS
"The Donnie and Marie of the grade-school set, New Yorkers Princess Katie and Racer Steve appeal to kids with upbeat tunes featuring lyrics that younger listeners can relate to. But the real value of the Princess and Racer’s albums is in the well-executed music, which is easily enjoyed by children but high-quality enough that they’ll find some familiar elements in the “adult” music of their older siblings, parents and even their grandparents." — Metro Augusta Parent
"Upbeat cool music and skits with positive messages and humorous hip lyrics. Dance to rock, swing, funk, pop, and more; with messages on winning, losing, sharing, making friends, and fun. From rockin' with "Sneakers", to the Brazilian pop of "Bubbles". Great energetic music for all ages." - A TO Z KIDS STUFF
"We have been rockin' out to this CD for the past week now and it, too, has gone into the car CD player (as well as onto my iPod). With great new songs that send the same kind of positive messages that the first CD did, Fast & Feisty is sure to appeal to parents and kids alike." - CELEBRITY BABY BLOG
Real music and skits with positive messages for kids and their parents! With lyrics dealing with issues such as respect, kindness, fairness, sharing, acceptance and fun just being a kid, Fast & Feisty is the perfect mix of entertainment, fun and positivity for families. Princess Katie & Racer Steve's music is appropriate for toddlers to 7 year olds.

Who are Princess Katie & Racer Steve?
PKRS began playing music for kids quite by accident. After spending several years making volunteer visits to kids in hospitals and in foster care dressed as popular TV and movie characters, PK & RS decided to step it up and perform some music for them. Although Racer Steve had been playing guitar for years, Princess Katie had never sung before. They decided to create their own characters and Princess Katie & Racer Steve were born!
