Leeny Tunes: Kids’ music that’s funducational!
Proud to be born and raised in the great state of New Jersey, but even happier to now call Cape Ann her home, Ilene Altman (aka Leeny) has rapidly become a fixture in the children’s music industry. Her 2008 debut CD, "Be Nice" by Leeny and Steve, garnered several honors including a Parents’ Choice Award and a Children’s Music Web Award as Best Recording for Preschoolers, and was named to the Best Music of 2008 Recommended List for Your Family from Common Sense Media. More accolades ensued for her 2009 sophomore release, "Sharing the Same Stars" by Leeny and Tamara, which features the local favorite song, “Singing Beach” (where Leeny first met her husband Nick). The album was dubbed by parents as the new "Free to Be You and Me" for the next generation, and received a Parents’ Choice Award and special recognition as a NAPPA (National Parenting Publications Awards) Rising Star honoree. In 2010, Leeny earned the ASCAP Plus Award for Songwriting. 2011 promises to be the most exciting year yet, with two new CDs slated for release, including one co-written and performed with a few North Shore kids!
Be sure to catch a concert with Leeny in a solo performance or with her band, The Eeny Meenys. She performs locally and around the Northeast at schools, libraries, fundraisers, community events, museums, festivals, and private parties. Shows are high energy, interactive, and geared toward audience participation. Leeny’s catchy, funny, and sweet songs cover topics like ladybugs and penguins and dogs (oh my!), good behavior, shyness, growing up, sharing, family, and seat belt safety.
