Pull up the covers and relax with Lisa Loeb and a world-class quartet led by keyboardist Larry Goldings. An Amazon Originals release, Lullaby Girl offers fresh and dreamy arrangements of classic songs from a variety of genres. Lisa’s distinctive voice adds intimacy and expression to these familiar melodies. Hushed and meditative, the recording was co-produced with Lisa's longtime collaborator Rich Jacques and Goldings, who is known for his work with James Taylor, John Mayer, as well as many top jazz artists. World-renowned songwriter and guitarist Adam Levy (who tours and records with Norah Jones and Tracy Chapman) also performs. The album was originally planned as a traditional lullaby record for children. As they began the recording process, Lisa, Larry and Rich found a uniquely different path, and it became clear that this would be a record for everyone. “I’m so excited for everyone to hear this collection of classics recorded with an amazing group of musicians. I feel like we’ve come up with a new take on classics that people will really enjoy. We live in a time where everything happens so quickly, but with this album, you’ll be able to slow it all down and relax!" shares Lisa.
Indeed, Lullaby Girl is an album for insomniacs. Lisa's performance reminds us of why songs like “Be My Baby,” “All the Pretty Little Horses,” “Dream a Little Dream,” "What the World Needs Now Is Love" and “Oooh Child” remain classics. Lisa’s original songs “Close Your Eyes” and "Lullaby Girl" flows right in with the pristine arrangements of tunes like Brian Wilson’s “In My Room” and Annie's“Tomorrow.”
Lullaby Girl is the perfect companion to Lisa's other award-winning family music releases Nursery Rhyme Parade! and Feel What U Feel.

My Thoughts: Guys...this CD is FANTASTIC. Really. I am a big Lisa Loeb fan already. I loved her songs from the 1990's like "Stay" and "Do You Sleep". I listened to them countless times and if you give me a couple of glasses of wine I might hop on my daughter's karaoke machine and belt them out myself (Ps...nobody wants to hear that. Trust me!). I also kind of loved that Lisa Loeb showed up in the Gossip Girl series finale (how cool is that?!). In any case, I am obviously a fan which I think likely made me a kind of tougher critic because this genre is really different from her 90's pop rock. But, you know what? I love it.
This compilation of dreamy songs is relaxing and soothing. Loeb's voice is clear and as strong as ever as she sings favorites with her own, distinct flavor. This collection is great for the whole family and adds a relaxed vibe which, I don't know about you, but my family struggles to attain sometimes. This CD would be perfect to pop at the end of the evening as you are winding down or during a low key dinner party. To be honest, I have it playing in the background quite a bit because I just find it calming and I need more of that in my life!
I am trying to figure out my favorite track and I am struggling because I really like them all but I really love "O-O-H Child" which is just such a great song to begin with and Loeb's spin on it is just lovely. Lullaby Girl is also a touching song that is just perfect for singing little ones goodnight and one that will quickly become a favorite. I also have to give a shout out about "Rainbow Connection" which is a song that I absolutely adore and this version might be my new favorite (sorry Kermit).
