Mister G, a Parents’ Choice Gold Award-winning artist whose music has been dubbed “irresistible” by People magazine and “a top choice for libraries” by School Library Journal is releasing a literacy-themed album to kick off summer reading.

G's Reading Looking Up

Spanning genres from surf rock and bluegrass, to funk and world music, the original songs on The Bossy E are a celebration of language, learning and creativity. Ben is joined on the record by legendary Grammy award-winning saxophonist Charles Neville (Neville Brothers), Senegalese superstar Massamba Diop (Baaba Maal),  a host of stellar musician friends and kids, and of course Missus G.
