Renee Padgett is an early child educator and renowned San Francisco Bay Area children’s music artist. Her career in Early Childhood Education began in 1995 as did her love of children’s books and literature. Her latest music CD, “Got Tricks,” is a suite of songs that correlate with original positive-purpose stories authored and illustrated by Renee. Her first two albums focused on gross motor development. As a BIPOC lesbian woman, Renee is sensitive to a wide variety of listeners and readers. Her stories have a rhythmic flow, visuals are engaging and the content is fun and imaginative. Renee knows that children learn best when they’re having fun, and seeks to create stories representative of her own family experiences that are under-represented in the market.
