Music is an extremely powerful medium, just ask any film director. It can be used to create a mood, emphasis a point, draw mystery to a scene or shot; and in our own lives, elicit responses that we were unaware we could feel. For children, music can teach concepts, engage even the shyest child in group activities and both calm and encourage. Music is fun – just think of those moments when you have been able to shed all inhibitions and dance around your lounge-room with the kidlets, singing your heart out!

Electric Lunchbox  - www.electriclunchboxmusic.com - is a Sydney based music dynamo, Jayde and Steve who have combined their numerous skills to write and perform songs that will have your little ones giggling and dancing with glee. Jayde was teaching Music & Movement Classes at Redfern, NSW for a few years when she started telling Steve that she wished that there was more variety in kids music that she could use in the classroom. Using some of her lyrics as a prompt, Steve wrote some music and convinced Jayde to sing along to it. From that moment, their songs have just kept on building.

The couple draw inspiration from everyday life and experiences. Possibly one of my favourites is “Born In An Ambulance”, which literally came about when their youngest son was born in an ambulance on the Princes Highway in Tempe! Of course “Mother Knows Best” also resonates with me for obvious reasons! Electric Lunchbox is unpretentious and fun. The music is upbeat, quirky and promises to elicit giggle from your youngsters.

Electric Lunchbox will be touring parts of Australia as part of the Rhymes Kids Festival. You can also purchase their music at their online store here.
