ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Engagingly sublime, with sophisticated artistry and magnificent wit." - Mindy, age 3

"Way cool!" - Sir Lord Alastair Huffington III, age 84


The Kid In The Mirror rocks with 10 tracks of cool tunes for kids, including such instant classics as "The Dinosaur, the Dodo and the Unicorn", "Video Game", "There's a Monster in My House" and "The Tiger and the Zebra". Five of the songs feature words written by renowned funny poetry author Kenn Nesbitt. Inventive arrangements, snazzy sound effects, imaginative lyrics, the engaging voice of Eric Herman and the punchy tightness and visual appeal of the Invisible Band all put The Kid In The Mirror at the forefront of contemporary children's music.


The real story about what happened to the dinosaurs, dodo birds and unicorns... An all-consuming video game... An extremely fast bicycle... A noisy, sleep-depriving monster... Ethereal dreams of flying... A hungry tiger and tasty zebra... A dangerously crazy mountain road... Clapping, dancing and jumping along with the kid in the mirror... Elephants that swing through trees... The sun in a bathing suit and the moon in pajamas...

Yes, this album has it all! :o)

And here's the blah blah blah part...

Eric Herman has been a regular music and theater performer/writer in the Western New York area for over 15 years (by the name 'Eric Endres'). He has released several recordings of original music, spanning a wide variety of styles, and has regularly been nominated for area music awards. In addition to performing theater roles including Harold Hill and Alfie Dolittle, Eric has also written the book, lyrics and music for two full-length musical comedies, the first of which, A Week In The Life, was produced at the Alleyway Theatre in Buffalo, NY 2003 to much success and acclaim.

As a performer, Eric is known for being an accomplished and versatile guitarist and vocalist who performs poignant and memorable songs with a humorous and engaging stage manner that entertains audiences of all ages. Early in 2003, Eric began performing music for children at schools, day cares and other events, and quickly gained a reputation for involving kids in the performances and eliciting enthusiastic responses. Eric often performs with his backup group, The Invisible Band, which includes some of the finest invisible musicians in the world, adding a creative and fun element to the convention of backing tracks.

Eric's first album of music for children, The Kid In The Mirror, features ten memorable songs of tremendous wit, depth and musical craft, including five songs with words by popular funny poetry writer Kenn Nesbitt. Above all catchy, humorous, fun and imaginative in its variety of songs, The Kid In The Mirror also touches appropriately and creatively on important subjects like personal safety, self-esteem and bravery in the face of life's challenges.

A wonderful album that your children will be sure to enjoy
Eric did a great job on this album. What started out as 'curiosity, one musician to another' turned into wonder, amazement, and a romping good time for this 46 year old little boy! I found myself smiling, and laughing out loud at the silliness of some of the songs, and my heart was light and carefree.
I don't have any children, but I know several who would love to have this album. I also know that it would make the top ten in the household whereever it was played.
If you are looking for inventive, imaginative, and pure fun, check out Eric Herman and The Invisible Band. Maybe, after listening, if *you* look in the mirror, you'll see a younger person staring back at you, too!

Best Kids Sing-along CD ever!
We got Eric's new CD Wednesday and it's been playing almost non-stop since. While the music seems targeted to preteens, every one of my teenagers were singing along to a variety songs by the end of the holiday weekend.

Every song from the first("The Dinosaur, the Dodo and the Unicorn") to the last ("The Tale of the Sun and the Moon) are great, but some of our favorites are:

-The World's Fastest Bicycle
-There's a Monster in my House
-The Kid in the Mirror
-The Elephant Song (big hit with everyone--Eric, you really don't know anything about animals...)
-Video Game (okay, not as big a hit with the teenagers, who were wanting to play video games all weekend!)

If you've got kids, grandkids, or you are a kid at heart, this is a great sing-along CD. My first response was, "hey, this is just as good as...(fill in the blank with your favorite kids singalong music...)", but my kids' unanimous decision (all eleven of them) is that it's the best kids' CD we own--and I've got to agree. Great songs, fun delivery, great messages, but not thrown in your
face.

Great Tunes for babies and kids!
Hey we just got Eric's new kids' CD, "the Kid in the Mirror" -- and it's great. My one-year-old started jumping and dancing to it the minute it came on... and the clever lyrics will get lots of giggles from older kids. Christmas is coming up, folks. It's a great stocking stuffer!

Plus great photo of the invisible band!

Editor's Pick

Imaginative production draws equally from Sesame Street and the Beatles.

The Kid in the Mirror
My daughter sings about a tiger eating a zebra non-stop now! And her favorite lullabye is "The Sun and the Moon." She is almost three and will not stop asking for this c.d. It was a perfect Christmas present.
