 Media Review

"I have to say, when Tami Stronach agreed to an interview I was nervous and completely overwhelmed with joy. Mostly because she brought back so many memories of my family and I crowding on the couch to watch her as The Childlike Empress in The Neverending Story. Since then she has not stopped being awesome."

-- Loren Kleinman, The Huffington Post

In her own words

Says Tami Stronach, "We know the rules. The rules are you aren't supposed to make albums anymore. Albums aren't supposed to be narrative. Kids' music is supposed to be funny, sweet, cute, and musically ground floor. We wanted to break all those rules. We made a full-length, A-side B-side concept album that tells an amazing story. We wanted it to be great music first, great storytelling second, and third, to let families connect to nostalgic American musical traditions from the folksy protest music of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger through to the classic rock/pop sounds of the '80s."

About the album

Featuring Paper Canoe co-founder Tami Stronach, known to millions for her haunting performance as The Childlike Empress in the iconic 1984 film, The Neverending Story, Beanstalk Jack references the American tradition of folk music that embraces a powerful message, and then shifts to include '60s, '70s, and '80s-style pop and rock, seasoned with a laid-back, bluesy element.

Beanstalk Jack tells the story of "Jack and the Beanstalk" with the addition of a refreshing girl-meets-boy twist, a tribute to the spirit of optimism, and more than a hint of youthful rebellion.  Jack, our intrepid hero, armed with his six-string guitar, climbs the beanstalk to seek his fortune. At the summit of the towering vegetation, Jack meets the giant's daughter, Harmony, a bright star just waiting for the right band to come along. He steals Harmony's heart, and they run away to follow their dreams and make music together, leaving the greedy giant to languish in the celestial dust.
