Songs for Family Friends & Frogs
After recording for several indie rock labels, Ed Stankewick, aka Mr. "S", began a career as a public schoolteacher in Brooklyn, New York. Blending his tastes for classic rock, folk, vintage punk, alt-country, and blues with his kooky sense of humor, Mr. "S" has developed a unique sound hip for both children and parents. His debut album, Songs For Family, Friends & Frogs, is a collection of original songs inspired and tested by his own children as well as the kids he teaches and jams with everyday. Whether he's telling a story or just horsing around Mr. "S" will keep the kindergarten dancing, the 6th grade laughing, and the minivan ROCKING! 'If you want to introduce your children to great rock 'n' roll in a format that's specifically geared to them, "Songs For Family Friends & Frogs" by Mr. "S" is for you. But watch out - it won't be long before those same kids are swiping copies of 'Rubber Soul' and 'Exile on Main Street' from your CD collection.' Eric Weiner, Author and Freelance Journalist 'Mr. S. clearly knows the difference between 'children's music' and 'music for everyone, including children,' and wisely drives straight down the latter path with a collection of songs the young ones can enjoy without feeling talked/sung down to. It rocks, but rocks gently enough." Michael Lynch, Fufkin.com "Frankie the French Fry sounds like the Ramones taking a detour through Sesame Street. Be a Superhero, give Mr."S" a shot!" Clyde Kerlew, Brooklyn Public Library On his newly released CD, "Songs For Family, Friends & Frogs"' MR. "S" AKA Ed Stankewick, always amazingly hits the nail on the head with his sweet combo of hard rock n' roll riffs and a heavy dose of "right-on kiddie hooks". Ken Shankman, Elmore Magazine/Ken-Do Promotions "Fantastic! Frankie the French Fry made me laugh out loud!" Tony Mac, Beef Stewdios.
