A Latin GRAMMY Award winner for Best Children’s Album, Mister G (Ben Gundersheimer) has been called “a bilingual rockstar” by The Washington Post and “irresistible” by People Magazine. His 2017 release, Mundo Verde/Green World, is a collection of environmental-themed songs which were debuted at his concert during the National Climate Rally in Washington, DC. Spanning genres from bluegrass to bossa nova, funk to folk, his dynamic, original music has won praise from The Boston Globe, Chicago SunTimes, People, New York Post, and Parents magazine.
Mister G tours internationally headlining major venues including SummerStage in Central Park (New York City), Hard Rock Cafe (Philadelphia), Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts (Washington, DC), Austin City Limits, the Getty Museum (Los Angeles), Chicago Botanic Garden, and JazzFest (New Orleans).
A former teacher with a Masters of Education, Mister G recently signed a multi-book deal with Penguin Random House to turn several of his songs into illustrated children’s picture books. Inspired by his students (who originally dubbed him ‘Mister G’), he began writing the songs that would comprise his debut family album Pizza for Breakfast.
