Robot Plus Bike is a conglomeration of artists solely heck bent on providing musical and literary entertainment for kids and ok, the adults they are with as well. But mostly kids. By playing music for kids and making awesome art and books for them. And maybe even using technology to find new ways to immerse children in positive messaging and rock.

 

Kemp Wisland

has been playing music since he was a kid--he's still a kid. Over the years, he has acquired many different types of fans to his style: ceiling, box, oscillating, and portable. Known as Mr. Wisland in the 3rd Grade classroom, his favorite subjects are P.E, lunch, and dismissal...typical 3rd grader. At home, he goes by "daddy" and is best friends to his two boys, one wife, one dog, and two cats. It only took one meeting with Joe Mohr to know that he would have to find room to make one more best friend. Luckily, one of the cats is really old. Joe's lyrics and Kemp's music are as simpatico as a spork. Therefore, Robot+Bike was naturally agreed upon as the perfect name for a combination of two utensils that do the same thing. Kemp and the future for ROBOT+BIKE is looking just okay.

Joe Mohr

is a cartoonist, writer and illustrator. His cartoons have appeared in Yes Magazine, Wend Magazine, The Progressive Magazine, Marion Nestle’s book Soda Politics (Oxford Press, 2015), Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year 2013 and 2014 editions (Pelican Publishing Company), United Arab Emirates Times, Village Voice, and more.  Joe has work appearing in Little Brown Books for Young Readers’ upcoming poetry anthology One Minute Till Bedtime (November, 2016). Many of the ROBOT+BIKE songs were originally published as children’s poems in his first book ROBOT+BIKE=KITTEN (2013, Blank Slate Press), the rest of the songs were originally written as poems for his upcoming book ROBOT+BIKE=CHICKEN. Joe’s a dad to three hilarious little humans and hubby to a hot babe named Ann Marie. Joe flipped his hairless lid when he heard his poems turned into songs by the astounding Kemp Wisland. The result was reminiscent of that time in the early 80’s when the dude with the chocolate bar bumped into the gal walking down the street eating peanut butter—Legendary. Joe and Kemp’s partnership has yet to be called legendary or compared to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, but it’s still early.

Joe can’t wait for Kemp’s old cat to die

Joe and Kemp were giddy when

Jim Harper

joined the effort. Jim’s creativity, business-sense and amazing musical talents are the glue that hold the chocolate to the peanut butter. We think they use glue to do that.
