Songs for Terrible Children is a musical satire for smart-ass kids that addresses issues like bullying, body image, diversity, and the environment. This is the work of Ben Spencer, a prairie-born songwriter, poet and performer who’s spent the last decade in Montreal, recording four full-length albums of original music and touring coast-to-coast. He has appeared at such events as NXNE, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, the Trout Forest Music Festival, Calgary Folk Fest, the Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal, and countless others.Though crafted with a mid-elementary age group in mind, the universal silliness of these songs will resonate with all ages.
