Norman Foote - Children's performer

Born Norman Mervyn Barrington Foote, Norman Foote had to develop a sense of humor at an early age. That sense of humor has become a hallmark of his music. Foote is known for his kid's-eye view of the world, and his friendly but pointed jabs at anything from pollution to Mom's style of cooking. Foote left his native Canada at age 20 and made his living as a street performer in Australia and New Zealand. He joined a traveling theater troupe in New South Wales, and developed an interest in puppetry and physical comedy. Foote began to combine all three in his stage performances for kids. Known among children's performers as a skillful songwriter, Foote returned to Canada and began writing kids' songs non-stop. Foote was one of the first artists signed with the ill-fated "Music Box" series of Walt Disney Records. His two releases with Disney, Foote Prints and If the Shoe Fits, showcased his songwriting skills with light and memorable songs such as "Dinosaur and the Progress of Man" and "Little Armadillos," a song about body mites on nose hairs. Foote's recordings won numerous awards, including a Juno nomination, a Parent's Choice Gold Award, and an award from the National Association of Parenting Publications of America. Since then he has received a 2009 Juno Award, for the CD and SOCAN’s ‘Songwriter of the Year’. Norman has written music and recorded besides Walt Disney Records, Shari Lewis, CBC, Max and Ruby musical and others.
