Album Notes
Songs For Little Monkeys ...Voted top 10 childrens CD by the New York Post
'Kindie Rock at it's Best' - The Melbourne Herald Sun
'Superstars in the Nursery' - The Melbourne Age

The Mudcakes swing effortlessly from the sounds of the tropics through to 70's funk, surf, classical and bluegrass in a delicious sonic mix that is food for ears young and old.

Nashville musicians Sherry Rich and Rick Plant would sneak out to the studio after putting their baby boy to bed, grab the kazoo, ukulele or banjo and get down to some serious silliness recording these original tunes that celebrate milestones in the first few years of a 'little monkey's life.
Influenced more by The Beatles and Frank Zappa than Walt Disney, the resulting music is alive and organic with some weird percussion and real sound effects that your kids will love. Track one 'Monkey Boy' may even boast the first ever harmonizing ukulele solo!
Check out titles like The Snot Song and Poo Party and you'll find a charming irreverance that is rare in todays kids CD's.
After being whipped into a frenzy by the first nine songs 'Bathtime' will help coax your little monkeys into the bubbles and then 'So Sleepy' and 'Dreamtime' will have them drooling on the pillow in no time. The last track introduces our funky rodent friend, Soul Mouse doing his best Al Green voice for 'Be Good To Your Mama'.

Sherry Rich is a native of Australia - hence her use of 'nappy' instead of diaper - and her music has been widely released on vinyl and CD in Australia, Japan, Europe and the US, beginning with the all girl powerpop band Girl Monstar (1988 - 1993), moving onto her own country rock projects Sherry Rich and the Grievous Angels and Sherry Rich and Courtesy Move ('94 - 98) and most recently with the paisley underground duo The Grapes ('99) and a classic country recording The Rich Family Album ('02)
Titles from her extensive song catalogue have been used in motion picture soundtracks and recorded by major artists in Australia and the US. Go to for more info.

Rick Plant attended the Berklee School of Music in his home town Boston, Mass. before moving to Nashville in the early 90's where he has been a respected member of the music scene working as guitarist and bass player for many fabulous folk ... Buddy and Julie Miller, Walter Hyatt, Allison Moorer, Radney Foster and Emmylou Harris to name but a few.

We hope you also enjoy the finger lickin' talent of guest artists Tammy Rogers (Reba McIntyre band) on fiddle, Byron House (Dixie Chicks) on stand up bass and Bryan Owings (Shelby Lynne band) on drums.

Fun for kids as well as mom & dad!
My baby loves to dance to it and my toddler learned the songs quickly and sings them all the time. I turn it on at our cranky part of the day to jazz things up, and it really works great! And I still laugh at how true the lyrics are! I guess we're not the only ones who call our kids monkeys!

Kids music even a cranky misanthrope can enjoy!
The Mudcakes CD is full of the kind of songs parents make up for their kids, rendered highly listenable by the musical talents of Sherry Rich and Rick Plant. Warm and melodic with lots of fun rhythms and sound effects - and a toilet training song you'll be glad to sing along with.


A two-year-old critic's pick!
Excellent from start to finish. We enjoy every song - even after having played it a million times! Very highly recommended.

something YOU won't get sick of...wonderful!!!
This music is beautiful, and your kids will LOVE it! The songs' subjects will make parents laugh and sing out loud with the kids. You won't tire of hearing this CD over and over and over again! Also, you can use some of the age-appropriate songs as tools at bedtime, pottytime, and discipline-time. I HIGHLY recommend it as a delightful treat for your family's ears!

Sing A-Along Fun
This is the best children's CD I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. We have many kid's CD's that we listen to (primarily in the car). They range from traditional pieces (Mulberry Bush, etc.) to Disney's Greatest Hits. Though my 3 year old enjoys them, none make him laugh like Monkey Boy. And, this is the only CD that he has totally memorized from start to finish. To quote him: Mommy, put in Monkey Boy!
