Artist Statement

Zev's original music for children draws from many musical cultures and traditions to create songs about everyday childhood: family, silliness, whimsy, and animal sounds.  Best suited for families and children age 1-9, his shows are active and interactive fun - every performance is a family dance party! Zev grew up in Poughkeepsie and lives in Mount Vernon. He has been performing and teaching music for over 10 years.  Zev's latest album, Chicken Scratch, has won two Children's Music Web Awards.  His song "El Quacko" is frequently requested on XM/Sirius radio by kids all over the country.  His previous albums are This Dog is Bananas and The Bluegrass Monkey Mixdown. Zev is available for solo performances, as well as with his band, Pretzelstein (rhymes with Frankenstein).  For performance clips, please visit
