Sara Lovell just released her fourth album, but her first for kids and families, written to celebrate the bond between parent and child. She wrote it as a love letter to her son, a creative six-year-old with an imagination.
The album will resonate with children, as it goes through a day for a young kid, beginning with getting out of bed, full of adventures during the day, and ending with a calm lullaby. It will capture kids' imaginations, with puppies, music, magical socks and more. It also has a lot of variety to listen to - every song sounds very different: gospel-style vocals, retro pop, Afro-Caribbean, and more.
explains, "I've been a composer and songwriter for the majority of my
life, but I put music-making on hold for a while when I made plans to
become a parent. I moved to a new city, renovated my house, set up my
recording studio and got on the waiting list for adoption. My beautiful
son came, and for the next four and a half years I hummed and sang
little bits and pieces of songs and played one-armed lullabies into my
phone recorder. Slowly more brain cells returned, my son became more
independent, I began compiling the song snippets (some for grown-ups,
too) and I played a few for my producer, Monica Pasqual. She suggested I
finish one of the kids' songs first, so I completed 'Off To Bed We Go,'
and the rest came pouring out!"
You've Got Me will be available at amazon.com, iTunes, CDBaby, and saralovell.com.
