Biography

Texas-born singer-songwriter Kimber Breaux (Rosie Mae BummKinn) along with musicians Ryan Bueter (Mighty Maverick BummKinn) and Sam Nickell (Big Red BummKinn) are The BummKinn Band along along with their rootin' tootin' high-falutin' mascot Joe Bear BummKinn. A teddy-sized stuffed bear with a grizzly bear personality, Joe Bear sets the pace for stories and songs direct from the band's mythical hometown of Hullaballoo, deep in the heart of Fish in A Tree County.

About the band's first CD, "STARRY SKIES AND LULLABIES", one reviewer writes, “With song craft and musicianship that Nashville would be proud of and words young kids can relate to, The Bummkinn Band has itself a blue-ribbon winner of an album.”

Breaux, the lead singer and songwriter for the band, claims her parents insist she was tossed off a Shetland pony into a hay field at birth. It would explain why she thinks in rhyme -- she can't help it, it happens every time.

With a voice that some compare to Lucinda Williams or Wynona Judd, Breaux has a natural and infectious way with children and hopes that the country music genre for children will continue to grow as the interest in kid's music has risen the past several years.

Lyrics

I Can Do Anything

Written By: Kimber Breaux

Hey Diddle Diddle
A cat plays a fiddle
A cow jumps over the moon
A little boy dancin what a beautiful sight
A dish runs away with a spoon
Hey baby baby
It all seems so crazy
Like snow in the middle of June
Hundred’s of stars in a west Texas sky
And two chipmunks singin in tune

I can do anything
With the humminbirds I’ll sing
Fly a kite on a string
I can do anything

Hey mamma mamma
Did you see that lama
Tap dancin down at the zoo
If he can do that I can do anything
Just like you said I could do
Like play a guitar
Invent a brand new car
Or soar into outer space
Teach children to read
In the marchin band lead
Paint butterflies all over my face

I can do anything
With the humminbirds I’ll sing
Fly a kite on a string
I can do anything

Friends

Written By: Kimber Breaux

Three little piggies and a wolf outside
Blew down the house they had no place to hide
Looked around for a place to go
Saw a neighbors house moved fast not slow
Knocked on the door oh what a sight
They were greeted by a smile and a place for the night

Friends
It’s really great to have friends
The fun never ends
As long as you’ve got friends

Goldilocks though nobody cares
Snuck in the house of the three bears
She ate their pouridge and slept in their beds
And when they found her she turned bright red
To her surprise they asked her to stay
Here’s a guitar girl come on let’s play

Friends
It’s really great to have friends
The fun never ends
As long as you’ve got friends

Look to yur right whose sittin there
Your best friend let ‘em know that you care
Share with them the lyrics of your favorite songs
Encourage them come on sing-a-long
Remember Goldilocks the three piggies too
Without their friends what would they do

Friends
It’s really great to have friends
The fun never ends
As long as you’ve got friends
Friends
It’s really great to have friends
The fun never ends
As long as you’ve got friends

Hey Mr. Humpty

Written By: Kimber Breaux

So Humpty Dumpty
Seems you had a great fall
And there is no one around for you to call
You tried all the king’s horses and all the king’s men
And no one could keep you together again
Well from where I’m standin
Something’s mighty clear
This is a new beginning and there’s nothin to fear

Hey hey Humpty Dumpty
Hey hey Humpty Dumpty
Hey hey Humpty Dumpty
You’ll get it back together again

Yes I see Humpty Dumpty you all broken down
Pieces be scattered all over the ground
Well, just start with one a oerfect fit
Hey there you go a star is what you get
Now I believe you got it
Pick up the next one
Humpty Dumpty I was right a new day has begun
Hee hee he

Hey hey Humpty Dumpty
Hey hey Humpty Dumpty
Hey hey Humpty Dumpty
You’ll get it back together again

Now there ain’t no mistakes just a few steps back
A time to reflect and plan a peaceful attack
Take a look at where your goin
See where you are now’
Feel the wind it’s blowin
And Shout out WOW
Mr. Humpty Dumpty
Can I call you that sir?
You getting back together and it’s causin a stir

Hey hey Humpty Dumpty
Hey hey Humpty Dumpty
Hey hey Humpty Dumpty
You’ll get it back together again
