“A Tom Waits for kids”





“In the footsteps of Seeger and Guthrie, Alastair Moock makes real kids music that parents can actually enjoy.”





“The soundtrack for diverse kids in the 1970’s was Marlo Thomas & Friends’ ‘Free to Be… You and Me’. Forty years later there
is a new, contemporary soundtrack emerging… Alastair Moock uses masterful songwriting skills to talk about ‘All Kinds of You
and Me,’ the title of his new CD… It is another soundtrack that could last us 40 years.”
– Cathy Fink, 2-Time Grammy Award Winning Family Musician





“Singer Alastair Moock’s live show is half Appalachian hootenanny, half honky-tonk jam session. It’s also totally kid-friendly…
[with] an indie sensibility hip parents dig.”





“A musical descendant of Woody Guthrie, Moock refreshes the classic brand of acoustic folk with a zany sense of humor.”





“‘Singing Our Way Through’ has a message of clear-eyed hope and comfort that isn’t just for kids… The songs provide a
combination of empathy and humor, offering strength to any families facing an uncertain future.”





“What’s most impressive about ‘Singing Our Way Through’ is its ability to portray cancer for what it is: a complex human
process full of fear and pain, but also moments of great intimacy and even joy. It’s an unsentimental album that happens
to be deeply moving… A masterpiece.”

Downloadable 2-Sided 8.5×11 Biography

Alastair Moock is a 2013 GRAMMY Nominee, two-time Parents’ Choice Gold Medal Winner, recipient of the ASCAP Joe Raposo Children’s Music Award, and has twice been voted by the Fids & Kamily Industry Critics’ Poll among the Top 3 Albums of the Year. Long one of Boston’s premier folk artists, Alastair turned his attention to family music after the birth of his twin daughters in 2006. The New York Times calls him “a Tom Waits for kids” and The Boston Globe declares that, “in the footsteps of Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie, Alastair Moock makes real kids music that parents can actually enjoy.” Moock and Friends’ live shows are rowdy, rootsy, singin’ and dancin’ fun for the whole family!


Downloadable Press Release: “All Kinds of You and Me”

On June 19, Moock releases a new album: All Kinds of You and Me. The project was largely inspired by Marlo Thomas’ landmark 1972 album Free To Be… You and Me. For that groundbreaking release, Thomas gathered musical friends to celebrate individuality, tolerance, and changing cultural ideas about gender roles. Moock’s new album builds on those themes, reflecting on gender, ethnicity, and identity today, as well as the evolving concept of family in America. Like Thomas, Moock gathered a number of special guests including producer Anand Nayak, Rani Arbo (Daisy Mayhem), Jennifer Kimball (The Story), Samirah Evans, Debbie Lan, and Mark Erelli.
