Gunnar Madsen is a Grammy-nominated composer whose work is featured in numerous hit movies and TV shows, in hit video games, and in some forgotten commercials. His performances range from church basements to Lincoln Center, from “Good Morning Omaha” to “The Tonight Show”, and he did the singing for Don Cheadle’s Sammy Davis Jr. in HBO’s “The Rat Pack”. Gunnar did not grow up dreaming of being Sammy Davis Jr. – he dreamt of being a Beatle (he was the sheepish yet proud owner of 2 Beatles wigs, which covered the severe crewcut his dad gave him every week). A college degree in music led to him delivering singing telegrams to the likes of Frank Oz, Richard Avedon, and Joan Mondale, while simultaneously writing music for Brechtian theater troupes. He fulfilled his boyhood Beatle-esque dream of singing to screaming fans by founding the acapella sensation The Bobs and touring the world. His Off-Broadway musical The Shaggs: Philosophy of the World won Best Original Score from Entertainment Today. His 4 family-friendly CDs have won virtually every major family-friendly accolade, including 4 Parents’ Choice Gold Awards. He lives at home.
“I Am Your Food stands apart from most of this year’s releases, on its own merits, as one of the most intriguing (and aurally edible) of 2018” GeekDad
“I have had SO much fun with this post! I … (received this) new album a couple of weeks ago and loved the unique and quirky vibe. The lyrics are awesome! I have to say that I’ve never heard an album for kids that is quite like this.” Mamatoma Mama
“Can I even pick a best song? I love Diet of Worms and it’s nod to They Might Be Giants. I love Egg Salad in the Sun (and frequently go back to replay the ending, it just cracks me up! Don’t judge me.) You are what you eat, after all. And if what you eat if half as good as this album, then you’re excellent.” Cherry Blossoms
