Thunder and Sunshine

Thunder and Sunshine

Thunder and Sunshine, a rock band for kids, was created by MC Esto, aka Esther Crow, (The Electric Mess, Auto Bonfire, DEVA) in the fall of 2015. After writing and performing music for over a decade, she had a kid (Vincent Otto Crow!) in August, 2013, and became inspired to write material for children. The songs came quickly, and she soon assembled a band chock full of local talent.

The goal was to create powerful, funky music with a strong message. The rhythm and melodies get those hands and feet moving while the lyrics make you think: If there were no "bad things", no obstacles in life, we wouldn't appreciate the good things, and the things that come easy. You can't have light without shadow, happiness without sadness, sunshine without a little thunder. Don't fear challenges; don't sulk on rainy days. There's so much to do! Just use your imagination. Believe in change. Nothing stays the same. But watch out for that monster in the closet....

Esther is influenced by many genres, and you'll hear lots of nods to the 70's and 80's era of popular music, and children's television. Inspirations include: Sesame Street, The Electric Company, Schoolhouse Rock, The Magic Garden, They Might be Giants, Carole King, The Sugarhill Gang, The Meters, Sly and the Family Stone, Curtis Mayfield, The Beatles, The Temptations, The Jacksons, and much more!
