  1. Happy is Here!
    Our first new music since 2018 and we have an amazing music video for it too. Plus, we have a new partner - 8 Pound Gorilla Records.

    The first single Happy off the forthcoming EP Happy To Be Here (8.27) is a product of being isolated for months during the pandemic. Happy is an ode to finding joy in the simple things in life: walking the dog on a lovely day, watching a movie with your family, drawing a picture, or simply listening to the birds sing. The single is especially important as a reminder that joy and happiness still can be ever-present despite our obstacles and extreme circumstances.
    The video plays around with the idea of puppets watching shows featuring the Movers and the Movers watching shows about puppets until at once they collide in an old school homage to the Brady Bunch. We even enlisted Kevin Carlson (who played Warehouse Mouse on the TV show) to do some puppeteering work. Peppered with a Scott Pilgrim-vibe, you have an energetic visual treat to go with an infectious tune.

    Lyrics:
    Happy - Such a simple word
    Happy - Best I’ve ever heard
    (We’re) gonna put it in a song

    Happy - If you’re feeling sad
    Happy – We’re going to tell you that
    You ought to sing along

    Our smile is wider than the state of North Carolina
    Our eyes are brighter than the summer sun
    Our cheery disposition
    We’re changing your condition
    Let’s make it a tradition
    And have some fun

    Happy - Such a simple word
    Happy - Best I’ve ever heard
    (We’re) gonna put it in a song

    Happy - If you’re feeling sad
    Happy – We’re going to tell you that
    You ought to sing along

    Happy - hanging round the house
    No reason to go out
    I’ll watch a movie with you-you-you-you

    Walking the dog outside
    Down the street and by
    Trees so tall under a sky so blue, blue, blue

    Scribble on a notepad
    I drew it and it’s not bad
    Pick up a pencil and try try try

    Listen to the birds sing
    It’s my favorite thing
    Angelic tunes fill the sky, sky, sky, sky

    H is for HAPPY
    A means we’re all right
    Pretty please double-P
    Y don’t you sing with me

    H is for HAPPY
    A means we’re all right
    Pretty please double-P
    Y don’t you sing with me

    HAPPY!   

    And our new partner is 8 Pound Gorilla Records, the inevitable offspring of 800 Pound Gorilla Records, the world's largest Comedy Record Label and one that's recently moved into the kids' and family programming.
  2. Number #1

    Jun 5
    Number #1

    We count ourselves lucky to be able to hear a song we wrote and performed on Sirius XM. It's not an experience we take for granted.

    That's why it is reaffirming to see a song resonate with people, as is the case with Kindergarten Graduation which on June 4th topped the 13 Under 13 Chart on Kids Place Live. Kids Place Live is such a great supporter of quality children's music for families to enjoy together and we're happy to see our music played on channel 78.

    It's the second version of the song. The 10-4 track is an electronic dance mix and fun in its own right, but the Swell Version, or the one you hear on KPL, is a rousing acoustic mix that is honest and straightforward. And, the only place you can get a copy is on our Bandcamp page.

    The lyrics are based in part on standards and benchmarks for kindergarteners and we wanted to be earnest and respectful about that hallmark in the life of a child. So, the song is an ode to graduates everywhere - from the smallest on up.

    Keep supporting our music and who we are!
  3. Live Shows on the Horizon?

    The big question on everyone's mind is when are the Movers playing live again. Well, the answer is soon.

    It's been a difficult period for many of us during the pandemic. Artists and the venues they perform were effectively shut down for well over a year. Many of our colleagues and performances spaces will not return.

    There is hope. With a light at the end of the tunnel, promoters and venues are once again booking shows and that means the Movers will be performing soon. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, many of the Movers have had to rely on their other occupations so our opportunities on the road will be limited.

    As such, it's important for you to know that if you see a Mover show booked, it really is a "don't miss this" opportunity.
  4. Can you feel it? It's graduation time and to celebrate, we invite you to enjoy Kindergarten Graduation (Swell Version).

    Based in part on the standards and benchmarks for kindergarten students, this song celebrates that monumental day when a kindergarten graduates and enters the wonderful world of 1st grade.
