Kindie rock is a style of children's music that "melds the sensibility of the singer-songwriter with themes aimed at kids under 10."[1] Many popular kindie rock artists first gained fame as adult performers: these include Dan Zanes and They Might Be Giants.[2] Other well-known kindie rock artists started directly in the genre, or did not achieve commercial success until moving in that direction: such artists include Laurie Berkner, Joanie Leeds & The Nightlights, Recess Monkey, and Tim and the Space Cadets.[3] Children's music veterans, Greg & Steve and Bobby Susser introduced various forms of kindie rock to the school supply industry in the mid 70s, and continue to do so, within their repertoire.[4] Cornering the market on kid-hop by blending hip-hop rhymes with imaginative storytelling is Secret Agent 23 Skidoo.[5]
