Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander have been exploring the outdoors together since they were kids. Now, as the Grammy Award-winning Okee Dokee Brothers, they have put this passion for the outdoors at the heart of their musical collaborations. Joe and Justin record and perform family music with a goal to inspire children and their parents to get outside and experience nature. They believe this can motivate kids to gain a greater respect for the natural world, their communities and themselves.
The two-time Parents’ Choice Award winners have garnered praise from the likes of NPR’s All Things Considered and USA Today, and have been called “two of family music’s best songwriters.” Their nationwide fan base is drawn to their witty lyrics, strong musicianship and unique folk style. The natural world is at the heart of their Americana folk music, with songs written by campfire and harmonies born on the water. The Okee Dokee Brothers make room for kids to dance, for parents to share stories and for everyone to gain respect for nature, each other and the world we live in.
