“Calling all tiny tots, kindie kids, yummy mummys, delicious daddyos and groovy grandparents!” 


 When Australian singer/songwriter Sherry Rich met Boston born musician Rick Plant in ‘music city’ Nashville, Tennessee, one thing lead to another and the Mudcakes were born! Along the way they have produced two beautiful babies, three CD’s and a DVD of delightful delicious music for young families. 

The Mudcakes' debut album, ‘Songs for Little Monkeys’ was voted in the top ten children’s CD by The New York Post. Sold out shows at The Melbourne Recital Centre, Adelaide Festival Centre, Brisbane Festival, Moomba and Arts Centre Spiegeltent, plus tours to New Zealand and the U.S have enhanced their reputation as favourites in the movement towards more organic adult friendly kids music - with songs all about the wild and wonderful ups and downs of family life in styles ranging from Hawaiian to reggae and garage rock. 

            Based in Australia since 2007, The Mudcakes bring a holistic approach to children’s entertainment… with ARIA nominated singer/songwriter Sherry Rich and Grammy and Oscar nominated musician, Rick Plant, producing most of their music and videos at their home studio in a lovely historic bayside seaport near Melbourne.

    So come swing your hips, howl and growl, catch a flying monkey, bang a bongo and even jump onstage to join in the fun! Perfect for little monkeys under 8 years old and their music loving folks.

The Mudcakes songs are all available at  itunes  spotify  CD Baby
