Award-winning musicians Stefani Rose and Daniel Martin are Martin and Rose Music, who blend their exceptional talents to create music for today’s kids and families. Martin and Rose Music’s newest children’s EP, Rain or Shine: A Nursery Rhyme Musical Adventure, will be released on April 7, 2023.
Rain or Shine: A Nursery Rhyme Musical Adventure is a follow-up to Martin and Rose Music’s critically acclaimed, full-length album, Dear Heart, and promises to be an even bigger hit with parents and children alike. The duo’s ever-growing fan base has already brought them 2.2 million monthly views on YouTube and over half a million monthly music streams.
To spread their music to new audiences, this daring husband and wife team will soon leave behind the comforts of their spacious 5-bedroom house and embark on an exhilarating journey of full-time RV living. Daniel Martin and Stefani Rose have long been thinking of ways to reach out to a wider audience, promote their newest hits, and pen new tunes for their upcoming summer release, Camp Fire. They’ve settled on purchasing a 2022 Arctic Wolf Fifth Wheel trailer to make it all happen.
Joining them on their epic adventure will be their two adorable kids, Nixon (7) and Nashville (5). Starting from their home in the sunny small town of Temecula, California on April 17th, 2023, the family will traverse the scenic West Coast all the way up to the Canadian border. Stops along the way will include breathtaking locations like Monterey; Big Sur; San Francisco; Portland and Bend, Oregon; and Seattle.
Heading southeast toward Yellowstone National Park, they will spend an entire week camping amidst the great outdoors. But the journey won’t end there! Daniel, Stefani, and the boys will continue through Idaho Falls, Salt Lake City, Bryce, Zion, and the Grand Canyon before embarking on the last stretch of their two-month journey. This is the first of many tours for this family band, who are excited to meet fans, make new friends and take their show on the road.
Martin and Rose know that they’ll need to make some serious adjustments to their lifestyle on the road, but they are more than inspired to discover new inspiration in unexplored places along the way. “It won’t be easy,” admits Daniel Martin, “but we’re determined to make the most of this amazing opportunity.” Stefani Rose nods in agreement, “We’ve never done anything like this before, and we figured it was time to take a leap of faith and do something spontaneous before out little kids grow up too fast.”
On the road, they’ll be playing tunes from Rain or Shine: A Nursery Rhyme Musical Adventure, including popular songs like the catchy single “Mr. Sun,” the classic “Rain Rain Go Away,” and the timeless “If You’re Happy and You Know It.” Each song is performed with the same energy and enthusiasm that has made Martin and Rose Music a household name among families. Together, the duo makes music that their own kids love and participate in, bringing a unique and authentic perspective to the world of children’s music.
