Praise for the album

"Songwriter/singer Kate Moran possesses a strong voice reminiscent of '80s songstresses Chrissie Hynde and Joan Jett, while the band professionally covers multiple genres, from folk, to rock, to rockabilly.  High energy nonsensical fun." 
-Parents' Choice Award Review of their debut album, "Meet the Rainbow"

Parent's Award- winning  Rainbow Rock Band performs more than 120 live shows each year.  Kids and families around the country await the appearance of this second album. 

Guided by the hand of singer/songwriter Dr Kate Moran, Rainbow Rock Band has been praised for its positive joyful, high-energy 
music, which engages young listeners and gets them moving to an irresistible beat while also enhancing their learning and social development.  Their thoughtful lyrics emphasize being kind to one another, as well as sharing a wonder and appreciation of the beautiful and fascinating. 

In Her Own Words

"Having worked in education for over 25 years, I wanted to provide teachers with a resource to use for circle time or when they are teaching lessons on colours, numbers, animals, plants, or the weather, while also serving as a catalyst for parents to support this learning at home or in the car.  My artistic vision was to create an album of beautiful songs rooted in authentic musical styles that connect with the real-life experiences of a child."  Throughout the album, Kate sings with a lovely clarity that is profoundly drenched in American folk, country, and pop music.  Kate's songs incorporate a musical language that draws upon and relates to the types of melodies that children actually sing and incorporate into their play.

 Unwrapping a little bit more info about Dr. Kate Moran

Dr. Kate Moran's lifelong enjoyment of singing and her numerous musical projects have provided a backdrop to her scholarly work in education.  She studied at the Catholic University of Virginia, and received her Doctorate in Special Education from George Mason University.  When she is not rockin' the rainbow, Dr. Kate works at the U.S Department of Education in the Office of Special Education Programs. 

The flip side of her is her astounding artistic achievements. She is a well-established singer/songwriter in the DC/MD/VA area. She has founded a successful music festival, the Del Ray Music Festival, and has performed tensely in and around the DMV with her pop band, the Kate Moran Band. Given her lengthy experience in education, and her love of working with children, and her considerable musical talents, making the move into children's music was a natural transition. Her drive to make the world a better place for families propelled her to an ever-expanded level of commitment.  To learn more about Dr. Kate and the Rainbow band please go to:
