“When I became a father in 2018, I wanted to create music that kids and adults could enjoy together.” said Jeremy Fisher. “Originally a side project, it just kept growing. As a new dad, I loved it and it felt really natural. Then the pandemic hit. I spent the next two years home, being a full-time parent. Our days were filled with impromptu family dance parties, making up silly rhymes for laughs or to soothe hurt feelings. I captured every little moment in creaky voice memos, which are transformed into a collection of dozens of songs and a great collaboration with Aiza Ntibarikure.

“This project was a gift that came to me during the pandemic,” said Aiza Ntibarikure. “It was a joy to collaborate with Jeremy and the team on the music, character design (I love Jazzy’s hair!) and the message this project sends to kids and families about the power of friendship. and music.”
