Album Notes
Hans Mayer writes music with an infectious sense of humor that keeps kids giggling, clapping, dancing and singing along. Kids (and parents, too) love his playful, fun-loving personality and his child-centered songs. Hans' warm, mellow voice, and skilled musicianship on mandolin, guitar, bass and Native American flute add to the groove and provide an experience that kids will enjoy over and over again (all without driving their parents crazy)!

School Library Journal had this to say : "Hans Mayer continues his light, easy-listening story-singing for youngsters on his seventh solo album ["Funny Little Creatures"]. The ten original and three traditional songs cover everything from getting stuck in the muck(“Grandpa’s Farm”) to aliens (“Funny Little Creatures”) to competition with a sibling (“Boxing in the Living Room” and “My Brother Has to Be First). Not to be missed are “The Flip-Flop Stomp” ( a danceable celebration of summer), “Night Crawlers” (an upbeat search for the critters), and “Puddle” (about the mud in the puddle in the middle of the road). It would be easy to mistake Mayer for Raffi in this rendition of “Mr. Sun,” since their voices have similar timbre. Mayer plays almost all of the instruments on the recording - guitars, mandolin, bass guitar, keyboard, harmonica, and kazoo. Kids will have fun singing along." - School Library Journal, August, 2008, Stephanie Bange, Wilmington-Stoop Branch, Dayton Metro Library, OH

His nine albums for families are hits with both kids and their parents. "Funny Little Creatures" was selected as a 2008 Parents' Choice Foundation Approved Title and as a 2008 Children's Music Web Award Winner.

In addition to children's music, Mayer has toured and recorded with acoustic/folk singer/songwriter Johnsmith and Native American recording artist Bill Miller. With Miller he appeared on the Today Show, Austin City Limits, the World Cafe and the PBS special "Songs of the Spirit". Miller and Mayer have opened for top acts including Willie Nelson, Tori Amos, Pearl Jam and the BoDeans. "You Are The Rain", a song co-written by Mayer and Miller, was selected for the soundtrack of the Rick Schroder independent film "Black Cloud".
