Princess (yes, that’s her real name) first performed at the age of 5, when she had the title role in a production of Little Belle, and she has been performing ever since.
Princess was in two Broadway shows by the time she was 22. She attended University of Northern Colorado, where she became certified to teach to teach tap, jazz, hip hop and basics in modern movement. Princess is also established as a long-time Denver comedienne. She performed with Chicken Lips Comedy Theater for 17 years, which included a four-year radio show stint on KHOW Denver and KTLK (“K-Talk Radio”). This translates to her bringing humor to all she does!
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.”
