ZOOLOGY by Mama B & Uncle T is the ultimate debut children’s album. The brainchild of long-time friends and collaborators, Jacq Becker (Mama B) and Travis Warner (Uncle T), who after becoming a mom and uncle were inspired to create a fresh musical soundscape for their newest family members. The music is composed of message-driven lyrics, interactive movement, delightful melodies, and organic contemporary production. The duo’s lush harmonies deliver the sweet and engaging animal themed songs meant for little ones. Jacq and Travis have both been writing and performing for 15+ years and hope this album is one of many Zoology editions to come!
Evaluation comments from our NAPPA Awards Music Judge:
“Looking to take a quick family trip to the zoo, but don’t have the time actually go to a real zoo? Mama B and Uncle T have a musical alternative that might provide a cure. At seven tracks long (including the giggly 30-second opener and a quiet minute-and-a-half closing instrumental), this debut record from Mama B (Jacq Becker) and Uncle T (Travis Warner) is a brief set; however, it is chockful of bright, breezy animal-themed tunes that also have a few uplifting messages too. “Hippopotamus” riffs off of “Hokey Pokey” along with dealing with getting acclimated to swimming in water. The cheery “Pink Polka Dot Flamingo” promotes individuality, while “Toucan-a-rama” offers goofy, good-time for all to dance along to. The album winds down with “Gigglin’ Gorillas” and “Goodnight Zoo” that help kids ease into bedtime. This LA-based musical duo delivers an impressive introduction with Zoology, which leaves you looking forward to more tunes from them in the future.”
