“Five Minutes With” Children’s Music Duo, Macaroni Birthday

Friends for 20 years, Macaroni Birthday writes bite-sized songs for the whole family. Macaroni Birthday is the duo of Patrick McCormack and Eric Warner. Both have spent time playing in loud rock and punk bands, performing hundreds of concerts between the two of them. The spark to start Macaroni Birthday was in part inspired by Warner’s three kids and the time spent making up songs for them to make them laugh, smile, and eat their fruits and vegetables.

Favourite local musician:

Toronto has so many talented musicians. I’m really into Julia Riolino’s debut album and all of Daniel Romano’s million releases.

EP or LP?


Early bird or night owl?

I have three kids. I’m up early and up late. Sleep is evasive but appreciated.

Road or studio?

Macaroni Birthday looks forward to performing in 2023. Covid has prevented this somewhat given our genre and targeted audience. Pat and I have played shows together in Canada, the US, and Europe. It would be great to do so again.

Any shows or albums coming up?

Our sophomore album, Sing Rock ‘N’ Roll Songs For Children just came out.
