Ken Kahn learned to produce music from his mentor Pete Welding at Testament Records, home to blues giants Muddy Waters and Lightnin’ Hopkins. Ken went on to become a storyteller himself and his songs have been praised by singers like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Manhattan Transfer. He wrote animation, became the lead Story Analyst for ABC Television, and joined Pete again at Capitol-EMI, where he produced albums that sold millions. Ken wrote Cowbears, singing as Uncle Wooly, and he took his storytelling beyond the recording studio and turned it into a new kind of App - the first-ever ‘Singing Story’. Cowbears is now being developed as animation for television and film.
Amye Rosenberg designed Cowbears. She has been compared to the greatest children’s book author/illustrators of her generation and her books have sold over 15,000,000 copies worldwide. She rises early to capture the best light, paints with rich gouache paint on the finest rag paper and is a master of stunning color and whimsical characters. Her Little Golden Books classics like “The Biggest, Most Beautiful Christmas Tree“ and “Jewels for Josephine” (Grosset/Scholastic) lead a roster of titles she has created for Simon & Schuster, Putnam and other leading publishers.

The Linck Twins, Deanna and Rebecca, love to sing and harmonize as the Cowbears cubs Teddy and Honey. They have so much fun that sometimes they laugh out loud after singing. This picture was taken on their 12th birthday by their mom on her iPhone.
