Hi, I'm Nicky Haimo and I've been playing guitar and making music since I was twelve. I am a native New Yorker of French origin. I lived in Paris, France, for more than a decade, and I have toured extensively, in both Europe and Asia. Writing songs for children came naturally when I became a father. These songs of love, joy and life in Brooklyn came about while changing diapers, telling my kids stories and rocking them to sleep. Children are a wonderful source of creativity and inspiration. I would like to thank all the very talented musicians that accompanied me on this recording, my friends and family for supporting me through this endeavor and you for visiting! Enjoy the music, and as my grandmother use to say " Be indulgent with your children." I wish you all peace, love, and endless patience. The Blue Straw Berries come from outer space. When they saw the earth, the first thing they said was,'Hey, we're blue like you!'
