From Andrew & Polly
Andrew Barkan and Polly Hall write and perform music for children under the name Andrew & Polly. Their imaginative and thoughtful songs encourage musical playfulness for people with any number of teeth. Andrew & Polly perform in and around Los Angeles at local stores, community places, schools and charity events. Andrew & Polly’s self-produced album “Up and At ‘Em!” features the song “When You’re A Dog,” winner of the 2012 ASCAP Foundation Joe Raposo Children’s Music Award. Their respective day jobs (writing and producing music for film and advertising) have led them to create music and sound design for Sesame Workshop (2006-2009) and, recently, Nickelodeon. Andrew & Polly are extremely optimistic about the future of media for children and are developing a new brand of thoughtful, imaginative and playful children’s entertainment based on their experiences with children and families.
