Album Notes
Songs for Terrible Children is a cycle of original music for younger audiences that uses satire to address challenging social issues. Billed as a sort of “Colbert Report for kids”, these songs open up opportunities for reflection and discussion around issues such as bullying, body image, social diversity, and the environment. Though crafted with a mid-elementary age group in mind, the universal silliness of Songs for Terrible Children may resonate with young and old.

This is the work of Ben Spencer, a Montreal-based songwriter, poet, performer, and producer who has released three full-length albums of original acoustic music and toured extensively across Canada. He has appeared at such events as NXNE, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, the Trout Forest Music Festival, North and South Country Fairs, the Regina City Folk Festival, the Montreal Fringe Festival, and countless others.
