I love music, and I love great songs. Whether it’s a lullaby or a hymn, wedding music, a classic love song or a country ballad, I appreciate a tune that’s well crafted. I’m a songwriter, so it’s only natural to look for the best lullabies – those with memorable melodies, beautiful and soothing music, or a lyric that somehow catches the ear – lights the imagination, if you will.
Now admittedly the lyrics of a lullaby are not always going to change the world – but there some that are better than others, and I prefer to expose my children and others’ to the best music, so they have naturally high musical standards as they grow and learn and develop in their musical sensitivities. And music is very important to a child’s development, in my opinion; I firmly believe we need to make every effort to keep music programs in our schools even in these difficult economic times.
Hey, get me off my soapbox. This is supposed to be Baby Lullaby Music, not Philosophy of Children’s Music 101!
Sometime soon, I’ll be working with a friend from Argentina on a Spanish language lullabies album, at cancionesdecuna.net. I expect it will be a bit more acoustic guitar oriented – time will tell.
In my first blog post I mentioned we’ve had great response to this first project, and a couple others are already in the planning stages. I can’t wait to start recording! I think they’ll be creatively a bit different, but still very gentle and relaxing.
I hope you enjoy our music. Please comment on one of the blog posts if you have any suggestions for lullabies you would like us to include on the next project – there are plenty of obscure (and perhaps common) songs that we either haven’t heard or thought of yet.
Another album that has my creative imprint is a Wedding Music Samples album on a wedding music site I’ve been working on for the last couple years. Check it out – the samples album is a great way for couples to choose their wedding music quickly and easily!
