"Children's Song of the Year"

A catchy ditty about the world’s smallest penguin ‘Little Blue’ by Kapiti Coast based Levity Beet (pictured) was recognised as the 2009 APRA Children’s Song of the Year, recently (Friday July 17) in Christchurch.

Levity Beet (aka APRA Member Nicholas Hollis) is a travelling storyteller and musician who has produced two albums 'Little Blue and the Living Treasure Band' 13 tracks about NZ native animals and one vegetable; and an album of action songs, music games and fun tunes for younger children called 'How Much Is That Piranha In Your Gumboot'. (Both available via www.amplifier.co.nz)

Children’s music champion and APRA Board Member, Arthur Baysting says: “Levity’s ‘Little Blue’ turns the worthy genre of environmental songs upside down with a crazy, catchy number that kids will find irresistible. His Little Blue Penguin is heading for musical stardom.”

Levity is influenced by The Muppets, The Clash,Sesame Street in the 70's, Raffi, Ali Farka Toure, The Pixes, Billy Jonas, David Hollis, DJ Shantel and the people, places and unique creatures of New Zealand.
Levity's originality comes from his ability to blend and twist traditional themes with a light hearted take on contemporary musical genres.
