I never thought I would write an album, let alone a children’s album. Girl Power Songs is not a dream, but a need. From preschool to Ph.D., I was educated as a little white boy.  

Recently, my son, a little white boy, has been learning all the same songs I learned when I was in school. At first, it was fun to sing along and realize I still knew every word. Then, something struck me. Why is it we know more about Yankee Doodle than Maya Angelou!

As a high school administrator at one of the top, most diverse, schools in the country, we constantly are working to make our curricula culturally relevant. But, what about children’s music?

Girl Power Songs are educational, empowering, and entertaining songs about women of power who have changed the world providing an opportunity for all children to sing the change they want to see in the world. 

Erica Bauer as a child.
I’ve been writing songs all of my life. Girl Power Songs is an expression of who I am and who I aspire to be – empowering, educational, and entertaining.

This project would not be possible without my little brother, J. Demetrius. He is a musical genius and I was his first piano teacher (he loves when I say that!).

Demetrius is the mastermind behind the musical arrangements, mixes, and masters. Despite me being his first teacher, I have become his student throughout this process. He’s taught me about recording layering vocals and producing. 

If you check out his YouTube channel, Instagram, and website; you will quickly see that he is a busy man. I am forever grateful to him for making time for this project. 

It’s been a labor of love, sibling love. I can’t wait for Girl Power Songs, Volume, 2. But, don’t mention this to him because he will for sure lost his mind.
