"Not only do my children love to play the songs of Inspiraled over and over, I do too! It is not common to find music that we both want to return to again and again.

"Octopretzel has pulled off another fantastic album! It is the perfect Inspiraled balance between spirit-filled song and playful fun the whole family can enjoy. We listen to it every day on our way to and from school and my kids wiggle in their seats with joy, sing along and laugh, and beg to hear it over and over again. Thank You Octopretzel for making another epic CD!" - Sara Bearman
"We've been dancing non stop to Octopretzle's new sweet creation 'Inspiraled' -- it's masterpiece! My 4-year-old goes to sleep and wakes up singing the melodies, and some of the words! I'm confident she'll know all of them by heart soon! What a treat for all! Thanks Octopretzel!!!" - Jess Kaufman
“Inspiraled is both whimsical and fun, yet profound, while demonstrating excellence in the craft of songwriting and musicianship."
- Ahri Golden
Octopretzel is a tangle of five Bay Area musicians, educators and parents - friends that originally came together for backyard jams. Over the years, as we developed our careers and grew our families, the music we created together continued to inspire us, and thus we formed our band. The name Octopretzel was coined by one of our then 4yr old kids, and it stuck.
Our music, comprised of original songs as well as traditional favorites, is whimsical and fun, with an underlying sensitivity for nature, feelings and story-telling. Best described as folk music, our songs cross generations and genres, weaving together many different musical styles, instruments and themes. Our intention is to create music that can be enjoyed by humans of all ages - children, and their parents too!
"Octopretzel's show is as exuberant as their whimsical name. The band creates engaging music, inspiring curiosity, wonder and appreciation for the world we live in. Their skilled musicianship and magical way with children guarantees a danceable, singable & super fun experience for the whole family."
"Octopretzel is... Fantastically folksy, magically musical, dreamily danceable and singably sweet for humans of all ages!"
