What’s New?

Jim “Mr. Stinky Feet” Cosgrove is celebrating 25 years of bringing families together through music with a NEW CD – Scoops of Love, which includes all new songs! Fans can stream the music on every platform available starting May 29th. We will have physical CDs for sale exclusively at live concerts and through our online store.

“Scoops of Love” is loaded with songs about people and things we love – puppies, chocolate, ice cream, heroes, and each other. And each song is a scoop of love to my family, friends, and fans! You may hear hints of (or musical winks to) The Grateful Dead, Bob Marley, Parliament, and KISS, but the songs are all quintessential Mr. Stinky Feet.(Jim Cosgrove)

 “Jim Cosgrove has captured the hearts and minds of kids and parents all across the country. Kansas City is lucky to call him one of our own.” Sly James, former Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri

For 25 years, Jim “Mr. Stinky Feet” Cosgrove has logged more than 4,500 performances in 38 U.S. states and seven countries, including two performances at he The White House Easter Egg Roll. In 2021, his music was streamed more than 2.6 million times on Spotify alone, and his YouTube channel has more than 2.3 million views.

When he isn’t singing or writing for children and families, Cosgrove shares inspiring messages with adult audiences, reminding them that taking a child-like (not childish) approach to life enhances the wonder of Now.
