Since 2012, Little Blue Globe Band has inspired kids and families with a modern folk sound informed by rock, electronica and classical music. The band's repertoire consists mostly of original songs with an educational angle, many of which have received millions views on the Toddler World TV channel on YouTube. With it's second studio album, "It's a Toddler's world," the band will have children and grown-ups alike singing and dancing during the day and relaxing at night!
Little Blue Globe Band's songs are cinematic in nature written with the idea of making a fun and educational music video to accompany them. The band's first album, an EP titled Halloween Night, contains seven Halloween themed songs which have become YouTube sensations. The songs "Halloween Night" and "Haunted House," for example, together have nearly 150 million views on YouTube. The band's second album, It's a Toddler's World, contains sixteen songs, most of which have received well over a million views on YouTube (see the Toddler World TV channel).

California native Matthew John Dorman has recorded children's music under the name Little Blue Globe Band since 2012. His interest in children’s music first came in 2005 during a Fulbright-funded fieldwork trip to Finland while working on his doctorate in ethnomusicology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. This interest became concrete after his first daughter Taika Kuu (Finnish for 'magic moon') was born in 2011. As a stay-at-home dad, Matthew began working on songs to help Taika relax and learn basic skill sets. The first tune along these lines was "The Balloon Song," a gentle folk song for learning colors. Shortly thereafter, "The Balloon Song" went viral on the YouTube channel Toddler World TV and Little Blue Globe Band had its first online hit. Since then, the band has recorded over 100 songs, jingles, and instrumental pieces, many of which have millions of views on YouTube. The core of the band’s sound is rooted in folk music, informed by rock, electronica, and music from around the world.
