MILKSHAKE | ROCK BAND + COMPOSERS  

Milkshake is a band on a mission: to create great rock music for kids.  Led by singer Lisa Mathews and guitarist Mikel Gehl, whose songs for grown-ups have been featured in movies and prime-time television, and whose indie rock group Love Riot garnered critical praise during its 10-year run, Milkshake has won over preschoolers without compromising songcraft, stagecraft, or their authentic rock & roll spirit.

 

From the release of their first CD Happy Songs (inspired by the birth of Lisa’s daughter and Mikel’s son), it was clear that Milkshake was an exciting departure from traditional kids’ music. The band’s songs were added to radio playlists across the country; a second CD, Bottle of Sunshine, earned raves from kids, parents, and critics; Noggin enlisted Lisa and Mikel to film two videos for the premiere season of Jack’s Big Music Show; Milkshake was asked to bring its high-energy stage act to the opening leg of the Jamarama Live! tour. 

 

The official release of several more albums including PLAY,  GREAT DAY which garnished Milkshake a nomination for the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Musical Album for Children. Their latest album Got a Minute?, is a disc of 33 short songs inspired by their 13 songs for PBS KIDS which are each a minute long (and included on this disc), the band set about writing songs no longer than 2 minutes.

 

With tuneful, memorable songs that evoke influences from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Lennon-McCartney to The White Stripes, Milkshake continues to create music that appeals to both kids and their parents, even after listening to the same CD five times in a row.
