-------------

I have recently transitioned from an folksinger/songwriter to a children's performer and with my child still in infancy, this is the perfect transition album. I have had mild to moderate success with four previous albums but this one has a particular marketing niche and a business plan and now I need help raising the capital.

This is an album of fun, smart and comedic mid-tempo folk songs and sweet modern lullabyes. It will be a family friendly version of my usually far-left progressively minded, green, body-positive, Queer- inclusive (I'm a lesbian mom!) music.

Why should you support an album that supports breastfeeding? Breast milk is the best food for babies. It supports a healthy immune system. It's the best protection from viruses and infections, it guards against early allergies and babies who breastfeed have been proven to have higher IQs, cognitive and social development, and better dental health. For moms, breastfeeding wards off postpartum depression, can protect against breast, uterine and ovarian cancer. To boot, breastfeeding is economical and its sustainable (no plastic/metal/paper waste or cows involved!). Studies have shown that the bond of breastfeeding can also reduce child abuse. Breast milk is amazing! Leave it at room temperature for 24hrs and it still kills bacteria. You love boobs even more now, don't you?

Specifically, the money from kickstarter pledges will pay for recording, engineering, mastering, printing, shipping, web re-vamp and hopefully some hours of work from a publicist to help get reviews and get the CD sold in stores and online.

Why Kickstarter? Not going into too much of my own debt on this project will enable me to make it happen faster and better and also to donate $1 for every CD purchased to . And if the album is successful, it will send me on my way towards making albums for older children too!

Thank you! (from the bottom of my heart..and both of my breasts!)
