Children’s Stage

Marty the Magician

Steve Weeks

Steve Weeks performs with both a boisterous sense of humor and a deep sense of purpose.  “We’re supposed to be entertaining and educating kids,” the Colorado-based singer-songwriter enthuses. “I am sincere about the music I write.  If it’s not coming from the heart or isn’t fun, I won’t write it.”

Weeks has long been known for his richly layered acoustic-based songs, experimentation with unusual percussion (including cans, pots and pans, even tinker-toys) and diverse musical styles that range from reggae to bluegrass to folk-hop. But at the heart of his music is always an outlandish story or a touching tale. Steve’s music doesn’t leave adults out in the cold. Woven throughout his songs are heartfelt messages and stories that young and old alike can appreciate.

Although music was a childhood passion, the South Carolina native says his career in independent kids (or Kindie) music was forged through happenstance.  A self-taught musician, he found himself composing a series of songs for his own children’s pre-school curriculum a few years ago.  The songs were well-received, and his reputation grew from a network of friends outward, eventually making Weeks’ music a staple on the national children’s music scene: “The whole thing grew very organically.”

“I want to be able to leave a real legacy with people,” Weeks says. “It really makes my day when someone tells me that they listen to my music as a family and that my songs mean something to them.  I’d love to think that someday people will remember my music as a fond part of their growing-up experience.”
