Referred to as “a Texas treasure” by the State Library Association, Joe McDermott released his first album of children’s music in 1988.
A former Montessori teacher, Joe has dedicated the last 30 years to honing the art and craft of entertaining children. His song writing has garnered numerous Parent’s Choice Awards and nominations, in addition to NAPPA and International Song Writing Contest awards.
In 1998, he won first place in the Children’s Music category from the John Lennon Song Writing Contest. He was invited to team up with Stan and Jan Berenstain to set ten of their books to music. Impressed by Joe’s musical talent, Stan Berenstain quipped that Joe was an “absolute wizard at communicating to children with music.”
