New Kids Music – Debi Derryberry "Very Derryberry"

Debi Derryberry delivers an undeniably pleasant collection of kiddie-rock tunes on her new disc “Very Derryberry”, a 15 song effort that appears to be aimed at the toddler set but is absolutely perfect for the older-infant and pre-toddler age groups. Really though, the sugary-sweet tunes are able to be enjoyed by anyone with a cheeky sense of style and humor.

There are a few truly great kids songs on “Very Derryberry” such as “Lechita Chocolate” (Chocolate Milk), a rockin’ version of “Skinnarmarink”, and the lyrically clever and rather humorous “Frechle Face Freddie”. The Bear was singing along with these cuts after just one listen – the music is that accessible and catchy. Debi’s playful voice invokes an overwhelming sense of 1950’s-styled innocence (heard especially on the track “Little Cabin in the Woods”). I envision the band in poodle-skirts playing soda fountain shoppes and ice cream parlours nationwide (now that would be a cool tour!)

If your gang is familiar with Jimmy Neutron you may very well recognize Debi’s unique vocal style, as she gives voice to the TV-boy genius. She also serves as the voice of Gnocchi the cat from the newish Curious George series on PBS, and Weenie from Oswald – as well as numerous other TV characters.
