Dubbed “irresistible” by People Magazine, which named it one of the Best Children’s CDs of 2011, BUGS features songs written during a busy year spent touring in Latin America, Europe and around the US.
A wide range of themes are explored on the album, including nature (“BUGS”, “Cocodrilo”), family (“Brothers and Sisters,” “Friends”) and the joys of being a kid (“Grilled Cheese,” “Snow Day”). The CD showcases Mister G’s command of a dizzying array of musical styles, including rock, ska, bossa nova, zydeco and bluegrass. Two bilingual songs are included on the CD, and the video for “Vamos a la Playa” was featured on national television for Hispanic Heritage Month. The CD concludes with an inspired cover of “Benny and the Jets” by a 9-year old Mister G (recorded in his parents’ living room circa 1978). Winner of a Parents’ Choice Award, and a NAPPA Rising Star Award.
