Caspar Babypants is also known as Chris Ballew, twice Grammy nominated lead singer and songwriter for the Seattle band The Presidents of the United States of America. Ten years ago Chris rediscovered turn of the century folk and traditional music and focused on a more simple approach that gave birth to Caspar Babypants.

His wife Kate Endle is a huge influence toward his transformation and writing style for kids and does the cover art for all 16 albums. Chris says, “I want to make music for the very young because I admire their associative inventive imaginations and as an adult I nurture that same creativity in myself.” For more information, visit
