Album Notes
Meteorologist Mish Michaels has a new company called Natural Cloud Cover, which offers "organic clothing for the weather watcher in every kid!" Mish contacted children's music artist Leeny (of Leeny and Steve & Leeny and Tamara) and asked if she'd like to help produce a CD of weather-related songs to be a part of the Natural Cloud Cover product line. Leeny teamed up with her good buddy Steve to write four new songs. Mish and Leeny also involved two other fabulous kids' bands in the project--Mama Mac and the Swingset Mamas. Now grab your anemometer and your dancing shoes, it's time to learn about the weather... and the forecast calls for fun! For more information about Natural Cloud Cover and Mish Michaels, visit


When Leeny’s persuasive four-year-old nephew Zak asked her to write a few songs for him, she teamed up with her buddy Steve to create an entire album! Their 2008 debut CD, "Be Nice" by Leeny and Steve, was named Best Recording for Preschoolers by the Children’s Music Web Awards. More accolades ensued for Leeny’s 2009 release, "Sharing the Same Stars" by Leeny and Tamara, including a second Parents’ Choice Award. Steve is a winemaker in Lehigh Valley, PA where he lives with his wife Stacia and an inordinate number of animals. Leeny is earning an M.Ed. and licensure to become an elementary school teacher! She lives in Gloucester, MA with her husband Nick. leenyand

Mama Mac was inspired by Amy Elkins’ volunteer role as the singing “Macaroni Monday mom” at her children’s preschool. Amy would cook and deliver pasta to each class along with an original song performance. Soon she built up a repertoire of the children’s favorites and cut her first CD as Mama Mac. The album garnered several awards, including 2010 Best Mom’s Award and Child Magazine’s Seal of Excellence, and the song “Firefly” plays over the end credits of the movie “Cafe,” starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. With an eclectic style ranging from rock to country to reggae and more, Mama Mac’s interactive songs engage both children and parents alike.

Winners of the 2011 Parents’ Choice Award, the Swingset Mamas are two real-life rockin’ moms whose music has spawned an avid network of fans, parents, and educators. The Mamas write, record, and perform upbeat songs in a variety of styles including reggae, zydeco, blues, funk, rock, and hip hop, all with singable, memorable lyrics. Incorporating American Sign Language with call and response singing, their live shows create an inspiring and unique shared social experience for people of all ages and abilities. Their interactive style gets everyone young and old, up on their feet singing, dancing, laughing, learning, and having tons of fun!

Go Big Red! These four women earned their undergraduate degrees (many moons ago!) from Cornell University: Ilene Altman (aka Leeny) B.S. Communication, Amy Elkins (aka Mama Mac) B.A. Theatre Arts, Marlowe Bechmann (½ of Swingset Mamas) B.A. Government, and Mish Michaels B.S. Atmospheric Sciences. Mish and Marlowe met at Cornell as Pi Beta Phi sorority sisters. Ilene and Amy met through Ilene’s little sister Hilary who performed in a band with Amy at Cornell. Ilene and Mish met in 2009 when Mish was producing a story about Cornell’s Lost Ladybug Project for WBZ in Boston. During her research, Mish heard “Ladybug, Ladybug, Ladybu-u-ug” by Leeny and Tamara, which the Ladybug Project had adopted as its theme song.
