Andrew & Polly are award-winning music makers and the hosts of Ear Snacks, a radical podcast for kids and families. Their original earworms ("Grapes” was SIRIUS XM’s #1 kids song of 2015) and inventive reimaginings of classic favorites ("Forever Young," "Ghostbusters") are smart, quirky, and full of heart.
"Odds & Ends," Andrew & Polly's 2015 self-produced album, received a Parents' Choice Award and was named one of the Fids & Kamily Top 10 Albums of 2015. The duo was honored to receive the ASCAP Foundation Joe Raposo Children's Music Award in 2012.
Together, Andrew & Polly compose and produce music for television and film. Their production credits include songs for Wallykazam!, Sesame Studios, the score to Welcome To The Wayne, their own dope jams and a bunch of boring commercials and films for grownups.
