KB Whirly’s fourth studio album for families is a collection of lullabies and love songs celebrating the concept of home and the ones who live within it. Written as a love letter to his daughter as she grows up, the nine songs in this collection take a look at the little, daily moments of life through the eyes of the parents and child.
Produced by Dean Jones, acoustic accompaniment perfectly pairs with Whirly’s folk, at times almost country, sound while frequently eliciting a Jack Johnson vibe. The lyrics are filled with love and care for family and the world around them. Now That We’re Home is a great addition to those quiet times, nap time or bedtime.
Below is the handmade arts and crafts video for the track, “Just Us Three” which describes small moments during a family outing. If you want to hear more lullabies from the album, watch the album release celebration KB Whirly Facebook live concert on Friday, February 22 at 6:30 pm EST.
Beginning February 16, there is a new YouTube channel that any grown up who lives or works with children needs to share with the little ones in their lives. Created by Dana Cohenour, or Miss Dana, Dana’s Music Playground is set to be the weekly musical treat that everyone needs. Drawing on her 20 years of experience entertaining families across the country, Miss Dana has crafted an exciting new program that will keep children engaged and entertained while also learning a thing or two.
While each week features a different theme – February 16 (Monkeys), February 23 (Happy), March 2 (Birds), and March 9 (Cows), every episode incorporates songs, musical instruments, fingerplays, sign language and much more.
