With over twenty years of experience in music, Nick Cope definitely knows his stuff. He's spent a decade working in the children's music industry, during which he's written, recorded and performed endless music for families. His music covers brilliant kid-friendly topics like lizards, losing teeth, nits, new schools and everything in between. Because of this, his 5 CDs of original songs are a staple in thousands of households across the world.
You may know him from CBeebies show Nick Cope's Popcast, where he is joined by his whippet Norman in a magical, musical mission filled with hilarious songs for kids. Maybe you've been lucky enough to catch one of his live shows - after all, he's toured the UK many times, sharing his music with his young fans along the way. If you're desperate for some more Nick Cope content, don't worry, he's joining us for a live Q&A on Wednesday 13th May on the Kidadl Instagram page.
