Justin Roberts

Two-time GRAMMY Nominee Justin Roberts is truly one of  the “all-stars” of  the indie family music scene. For nearly 20 years, Roberts  has  been  creating  the  soundtrack  to  families’  lives, crafting songs that navigate the joys and sorrows of  growing up. Justin and his band, The Not Ready for Naptime Players, have  travelled  the  globe,  from  Hong  Kong  to  New  York,  and Miami to Seattle.  He’s received two GRAMMY nominations, for Jungle Gym in  2011 and Recess in 2014.  In 2014, Roberts composed a musical based on Hansel & Gretel, produced a cast recording of that show, and published his first picture book, The Smallest Girl in the Smallest Grade (illustrated by Christian Robinson) with Putnam.
