Three Free Giveaway!

by Amber on July 19, 2010

As we drive around town I usually pick two or three CDs to play in the car. The three we’ve got on rotation right now seem to compliment each other so well that I thought it might be nice to do a giveaway for all three!

Bari Koral’s Rock & Roll Garden came out earlier this year and was an instant hit with everyone in our family. Bari strikes that perfect balance between rock (strong tunes with electric guitar) and sweet (songs about duckies and dancing). Her lyrics tend to be simple, which make the songs easy to sing along to even the first time you hear them. But she also throws in a couple of songs with some really deep messages, like Uh Oh (my favorite song on the album), about all the possibilities that lay ahead for any kid (or grown up for that matter). Where will we end up? Will we remain friends through it all?

Bari’s voice is light and fun and we just love listening to this CD over and over. We’re also very excited to announce that Bari is planning a Massachusetts tour in August and will be playing four shows in our area! On August 5th she’ll be playing at the Lowell Summer Music Series, on August 7th she’ll be at the Hingham Launch Shipyard, and on August 10th she’ll be playing at the Watertown Library! You’ll want to get your hands on this CD so you can prepare for these three upcoming shows!

We’ve also been listening to Lisa Monet’s newest album, My Best Friend. This CD came out last year and is a nice combination of traditional and original songs. Songs like Buffalo Gals and Candy Man are always fun, but I love the new silly songs like Goin’ to a Restaurant (where mom and dad learn that it’s actually easier to just stay in and make dinner at home) and the dancing tune Shake it Up! (Ivan’s favorite on the CD).

Throughout the CD Lisa keeps returning to the themes of friendship and play, both great messages for kids. If you think about it, that’s what childhood is all about! This album is definitely worth checking out.

What are the OddsThe last album in our rotation is the newest kids’ CD from Meredith LeVande, What are the Odds. This is the first time I’ve heard Meredith’s music and I’ve become an instant fan. Her vocals are so playful and endearing and you can really tell that she loves singing songs for kids. Meredith says that she thinks “every song should originate from a wonderful connection with a child” and that really shines through in her work.

Plus her songs are just so much fun to sing! The title song, What are the Odds, is a silly tune about odd numbers and it ends in this fast repeating verse that goes through the odd numbers one through nine over and over. It’s so much fun I dare you not to sing along!

Meredith’s new CD won’t be released until August 31st, but if you enter this contest you can get your hands on an early copy!
