Album Notes
This week in the news BLACK EYED PEAS star is developing a new AMERICAN IDOL-type talent show for nerds. He says, "We need creative people working with broadcasters, making smart content to inspire people to be geniuses. It will be great for society."

Jonathan & The NERDZ are already a step ahead.

Call Me A Nerd is a kid’s music project instilling confidence and leadership skills in children ages six through eleven (kindergarten – 5th grade). This is the age when they are establishing their social position in the world around them. Grossman states “with songs like, Call Me A Nerd, This Is Who I Am and Shine, I am encouraging the children to celebrate exactly who they are, even in the face of a world that creates self-doubt.”

“Through songs and music, we remind children there is only one YOU: be it nerd, athlete, musician, or geek. The songs on this new CD ask big questions, encouraging adult listeners to think about issues such as integrity, gratitude and social accountability. This will then spawn conversations with their children.”

Jonathan Grossman is an award-winning composer and performer. Since his graduation with a B.A. in Music from Cornell University in 1991, he has dedicated his life to music both as an indy recording artist with his band, Dogwood Moon and as a television composer, Joan of Arcadia (CBS). Call Me A Nerd is his first children’s music record and the start of the Call Me A Nerd Project which will expand to in-school seminars and children’s animated programming.

Willie Aron is an award-winning film and television composer, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. His score for the independent film The Curiosity Of Chance won Best Musical Score at the 2007 Nashville Film Festival. Aron has performed and recorded with acclaimed artists such as Phoebe Snow, Rickie Lee Jones, Van Dyke Parks, and Peter Himmelman. In 2007, he and Himmelman co-produced a children’s album, My Green Kite, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Children’s Album of 2007.

"Jonathan's ability with kids is both natural and profound" - Katie Rios, Director @ Wildwood Elementary School, Los Angeles, CA

Sara Johnston

Great for kids and building confidence
What I like best about this CD is that is is very upbeat and listenable. In a world where kids are bullied and given a tough time in school, these messages are so important. I also like the rock and roll feel of the cd.


great stuff
This is exactly the kind of music my kids love - they've outgrown the more babyish music they've listened to - but aren't ready (or at least I'm not) for Top 40 radio. The songs have a positive message and instill confidence as well as have catchy hooks! More from Jonathan and the Nerdz, please!

Steve Peckingham

Great music. Great message
When a kid has confidence they can do anything. Jonathan Grossman helps give kids the confidence they need to to reach their goals and soar over the hurdles life puts before them. There's a lot of powerful stuff in these 11 catchy tunes.

Good for you
I can't stand all the negative music for kids. I am buying several to give to the teachers at my kid elementary school. This stuff is fun.
