Splash’N Boots rose to prominence in the hearts
and minds of families through music, live shows and television. Their music
creates family dance parties; it is a soundtrack to bedtimes, mealtime and all
moments in between. Since their inception, Splash’N Boots have released
twelve original music albums, resulting in five consecutive JUNO Award
nominations for Children’s Album of the Year between 2014 and 2018.
Their most recent album, You, Me and The Sea , saw them
collaborating with much loved singer-songwriter Alan Doyle (formerly of
Great Big Sea) and recently was awarded the JUNO Award for Children’s Album
of the Year.
Recording in Newfoundland, Canada, the new songs are infused
with the essential elements of Newfoundland kitchen parties with a good dose of
step dancing, fiddling and even a dreamy bedtime waltz. The duo have over
925,000 streams on Spotify (250,000 streams in 2018 alone), and enjoy an
ongoing conversation with their community on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
They’ve also won Canadian Children’s Music Group of The Year at the
SiriusXM Independent Music Awards three times. On television, they appear daily
in over 8.5 million homes across Canada with their number one TV show, which is
broadcast daily on Canada’s top children’s television network, Treehouse TV and
Disney Jr. Canada. The show is also featured on Kidoodle TV, a worldwide
streaming platform, and had over 1 million streams within the first 6 months on
the channel. To date, they have written and starred in over 100 episodes and
have also written and produced an original segment for season 49 of Sesame
Street. They’ve also been featured in televised performances with The Wiggles
and Fred Penner. At their live shows, the family audience is encouraged to show
up and participate as the yellow and blue crew. “It’s a collective
experience for us and the audience. Our goal is always connection – bringing
kids closer to their families, and also to each other”
explains Taes
Leavitt (Boots) “Our hope is that our music will connect, and also inspire
kids to stand up tall in who they are, and know that they are always loved,
”
continues Nick Adams (Splash.) Unique and inventive, they constantly strive to
create opportunities for parents and children to share moments. They’ve toured
in North America, Dubai, Bermuda, Australia, and Italy.

Splash’N Boots are committed to raising
awareness for important causes. They do ongoing performances and outreach with
Toronto’s Sick Kids Hospital, Camp Ooch (a camp dedicated to serving children
affected by cancer), team up with Kids Up Front (a charitable organization who
distributes tickets to kids and families who can’t access them), and have a longtime
relationship with Starlight Foundation (a charitable organization dedicated to
brightening the lives of seriously ill children and their families by bringing
them joy, laughter and relief.) They shepherd their own grassroots
organization, Lucas’ Letters, a pen pal program that connects children with
Autism and they are the first children’s act to partner with PLUS1 so that $1
from every ticket sold in their cross-Canada 2018 tour went to support access
to music education and adaptive instruments for young children via Musicounts.

In
2018, the band created the Big Heart Award. The duo gave a seven-year old boy
named Nicholas, who was being severely bullied at school, a yellow and blue
heart-shaped pillow to hug when he was feeling scared and lonely. The pillow
was to remind him that he is loved and that he will always be part of the
Yellow and Blue Family. For his birthday, Nicholas told his friends and family
to bring money instead of presents so he could buy heart pillows for other kids
who needed love. He showed up at a Splash’N Boots show and told them
what he’d done. Nicholas’ inspiring love movement was embraced by Splash’N
Boots
and it led them to create their Big Heart Award. To date they
have presented over 75 people, of all ages and abilities, who are doing amazing
things in their communities or who could just use an extra bit of love and
support with the Big Heart Award. The award represents exactly what Splash’N
Boots aim to be for children and families; a chance for them to be seen, heard,
and loved for exactly who they are.
