Fairy Tales are empowering, emotional, and important. But today, simply telling these stories just isn’t enough. They’ve been told, retold, and reimagined so many times that they are often unrecognizable. These timeless stories need to be remembered! And what better way to remember them than with music?
Brian Banks set about telling these stories - one by one - as songs, calling them “StorySongs”, and put together a band “OUTTA THE BOOKS” to record them. . . OTB sings these tales so kids can relate, respond and remember.
