Three Precious Children’s Music Collections for Your Family

As a mother and music lover, I am happy to share three precious children’s music collections and all the background news that comes from Sugar Mountain PR. These are now all part of our collection whether we want to relax before bed or have a dance party.

From Sugar Mountain PR:

Berkeley, CA, March 27, 2018 Sara Lovell, an award-winning songwriter and producer known for “imaginative lyrics, sparkling harmonies, intriguing musical layers” and “a voice rich in both purity and nuanced detail,” will release her second all-ages music album Wild Is Everywhere, on April 20(Unbreakable Chord Music/ distributed by Burnside Distribution).

Sara and special guests will celebrate the album release with a concert at East Bay Community Space in Oakland on April 28.

With a wide range of topics and musical styles, these 14 original songs journey through a landscape populated with flying children, misplaced animals of a certain size, and insects or flowers that turn up in the most unexpected places.

From the Sgt. Pepper’s inspired first track, “Get Up,” where listeners are invited to “grab onto the tail of someone’s kite,” the excitement and mystery builds and expands song by song. Wordplay and a vivid fantasy life are apparent with the funky “Rhinoceros under the Bed” and “Raspberry Pickleberry Wormnut Pie.” Blues, disco and funk inflect “Bounce,” “Stand Together” and “Where You Hiding All Day Long?” Every child will recognize the unfairness when “All the Grownups Get To Stay Up Late” and the impatience of “I Want It Now,” showing that Lovell understands the big feelings that live in all of us.

At a time when it can be a challenge to find good news, Lovell reminds us in the songs of Wild Is Everywhere, that joy and imagination are no small offerings. “When we allow curiosity to take hold, it widens our perceptions letting us envision the world we want to see.” As she says in the playfully creepy song, “The Dark Side of My Room,” it’s important to acknowledge: “Oh, I know, I can be a hero in my dreams / Oh, I know, I will see the light in every scene.”

La Luna by 123 Andrés ~ Latin GRAMMY winner Andrés and his wife Christina spend most of their time in the United States, but Andrés’ ties to South America carry them across the continent. La luna was produced in Argentina and Mexico, and the list of top-tier guests hail from several countries. The special surprise that closes the album is an appearance by Little Miss Ann (a noted Chicago based kindie artist) with a tender song in English and Spanish called “Fly, Shine, Soar. Due out on April 13th.

From Sugar Mountain PR:

GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin released her Amazon Originals album, The Starlighter, an album of songs adapted from the children’s music book “Lullabies and Night Songs.” The Starlighter is available exclusively for purchase and stream on Amazon Music.

Two other music videos – of the title track, The Starlighter,” and “Minnie and Winnie” – have been released so far. These videos are based on Victorian paper theatres and the illustration style of children’s books from the same era, and were created by the Manchester, UK/Los Angeles-based motion design studio We Fail. Each scene contains over one hundred layered illustrations, and every element in the video was drawn using a digital tablet before being animated by hand.

Thank you to Sugar Mountain PR for our complimentary CD’s in exchange for sharing the news about this music!

Coffee

You know, it’s funny. I never drank coffee before my daughter was born. I always laughed at those people who had to have a cup before they could start their day. Well, now, I’m kind of one of those people.

But here’s what’s really funny. I started drinking it to keep myself awake during the days after all-nighters with my newborn. Now, she’s almost four and it’s a habit for me. But she gets to me before I get to my first cup and wants stuff. The only solution is to wake up before she does and that would only make me more tired and in need of more coffee.

I’m completely screwed, right?!
