Did you know Canada.. we are really counting down the weeks until the new baby gets here now, and I'm so excited to have learned about Vocal Paint.
Vocal Paint was founded by Jason Simmons and the first CD in the Vocal Paint series "My Butterfly/A Capella Lullabies" was released in 2011.
In 2012, "My Butterfly/A Capella Lullabies" received a Juno nomination for "Children's Album of the Year"!!!
We have been listening to it this past week and I really enjoy it, it's very soft and soothing, exactly what our babies need to fall asleep, especially for those middle of the night feedings. Personally I love that it's not "cutesy", don't get me wrong, I love cutesy, silly singing for kids too, but at bed time this will be beautiful to listen to, not only for babe, but for a sleepy Mom to enjoy too.
One of my favourite songs on the CD is Edelweiss, it makes me think of the Sound of Music and childhood and fun days. It's also such a relaxing song. There are also many childhood songs on the CD like Hush Little Baby, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Row, Row, Row Your Boat - all family favourites and easy to sing and hum along to.
All the songs are done in a capella, of course, the human voice is the oldest musical instrument and for centuries parents have been singing their children to sleep. We have found this CD a real comfort to listen to and enjoy and I can't wait to share it with our new little one!
Visit the Vocal Paint website to listen to samples of the CD and purchase from iTunes or CD Baby.
