The new cd "Sunny Days" from The inimitable BatDuo, is all about Kids and what they love to do in the summer, from going on vacation to the lake, to dancing, eating yummy pies and ice cream, and blowing bubbles. In the mix, of course, is the "forever loving" Flat Screen Daddy, and the beautiful, talented and perennially intelligent Mom, featured in "Smart to be Smart."
Sunny Days is all about kindness, and Family; Loyalty and Friendship.
Eleven brand new Battersby Duo songs that catapault the listener into a world of wacky wisdom and Seussian logic ?

Dads & Moms take note
This album is very contagious, yes it's silly & fun, but it is also contagious and you just might find yourself humming or singing these tunes yourself. My young one always listens and enjoys the Battersby Duo and their silly humor, sweet harmonies, and emotional appeal just keep growing. This is the latest collection of their songs and they have evolved musically while maintaining their silly side. You will also want to purchase "A Tail of Two Sillies" and "By the Book" after you become fans from listening, singing along, and dancing to "Sunny Days".

Another Awesome CD by The Best!
Our family loves this CD! Even now my kids are a little older (1st & 2nd grades) they still love to listen to the Battersby Duo songs. When I told them about the new CD they started dancing around and wanted to know when they could hear it! lol All of us loved "Sunny Day", "Bubbles", and "Rhythm of the Sway". My oldest has kept going around the house singing "I'm proud to be me" over and over, and my youngest keeps saying (yelling) “I'm gonna shout my blues right out!!” from “It's a Brilliant Day”. The whole CD is Brilliant!

Thanks Battersby Duo for entertaining our kids (and us) so well and for so long. We'll be fans forever, I know. I'm going to buy another copy for the preschool my kids went to. The teachers and kids always get a kick out of the Duo's songs as much as we do. Now that I think of it, I think my youngest niece would love to have a copy too.

Sunny Days With The Battersby Duo
After a long day of adventures with Mishy and then being stuck in traffic, I play, Sunny Days, the Grammy nominated CD by The Battersby Duo. Listening to their songs instantly reminds me of the sunny day I just had with my daughter. We are based in Los Angeles and while traffic in Los Angeles doesn’t rival Cairo’s, it still gets crunchy. I breathe and sing along as sometimes a car tries to cut in front of me before I look in the rear view mirror to see my daughter dancing in her car seat, clearly enjoying the music too.

Mishy’s favorite song from Sunny Days is, “Bubbles.” After she heard it once, she knew the chorus instantly. Now, she gets this fun smile on her face, runs up to me, and starts singing, “I love bubbles…” I love Mishy’s voice. I love Laura and Tim Battersby’s voice, melodies, and lyrics. Their songs remind me of all the fun songs I wished I had when I was younger, when I hoped the world was a wide world of fun, charm, and constant springtime where flowers continue to bloom and there is a freshness in the air.

Their opening song, “Sunny Days,” makes me think I am on a family vacation with Mishy every day because truth be told, I am so lucky I am able to spend my days with her. “Proud To Be Me,” is a genuinely enjoyable song about silly things we all do and how it’s fine to sing, “I am proud to be me…” It feels it has a history to become an anthem for children of all ages, including those who like being childlike, at times.

Sunny Days, reminds me of all the great summer camps I attended and the campfires and the dances I had with the boys I had crushes on – they were some of the highlights of my years growing up. I didn’t always date the boys I had crushes on, but I usually got to dance with them at least once.

Yes, the CD’s genre is kids music, but it doesn’t mean it’s just for kids. Sunny Days is for anyone who was a kid and sometimes yearns for that innocence again and also for those who don’t have the baggage of life to yearn for that lost innocence. Most importantly, the music is fun to listen to over and over again, with an educational twist.

Want to see The Battersby Duo in concert? They are embarking on a substantial tour this spring which reaches deep into summer. Their first stop is in London, and then on May 29th, 2011, they will be headlining the The Des Moines Family Music Festival (Every Family Rocks) along with Justin Roberts and They Might Be Giants. http://www.everyfamilyrocks.org/

They will be continuing their tour to New York, Washington, DC, and Chicago by mid June and then continuing on southwards to Naples and Fort Myers, Florida, before working their way up along the east coast through Jacksonville, Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC and end up in Northern Virginia, right outside DC by the beginning of August. Want to keep a track of their tour? Follow them on their website: http://www.battersbyduo.com/

(Full disclosure: This CD was gifted to us. I was under no obligation to review it. I chose to because after seeing The Batterby Duo perform a short set when they were in Los Angeles for the Children’s Grammy Nominee concert, I became a fan and I really love, Sunny Days.)

Now that's what I'm talking about
At last...a Kids music cd that is age appropriate......fun and above all...musical!!
The Battersby Duo has a winner here with Sunny Days. My kids LOVE the Bubbles song, which has a wonderfully catchy refrain that is incredibly contagious. Flat Screen Daddy is loved by all the Dads in our neighborhood, who now appear to be proud that they are all "well respected balding middle aged men!!"
We love Sunny Days here in Virginia and encourage everyone to buy a copy for their family.
Musically, it's the best children's cd I have ever had the pleasure of owning.

FANTASTIC - One of the BEST yet
One of the BEST yet - my children (and myself) have enjoyed all of the Battersby Duo CD's/DVD's, and shared with many family and friends throughout the years! They have out-done themselves on this one. A "feel-good", "make you want to sing" kind of cd (even as an adult, you will find yourself singing and/or humming the songs withOUT your children around! :D)

Sally McCarthy

Another fabulous cd...
I am a third grade teacher and I have been listening to and enjoying the Battersby Duo for years!!! We use their CDs in the classroom during creative times and when we need some movement or relaxation. We love this new CD!!!!! I have many special needs kids in my room and it's a fabulous way to bring everyone togther while having a wonderful time. Our new favorite is "Bubbles" and we all sing along at the top of our lungs! What fun it is to have some age appropriate music that we all enjoy!!! All of the songs are super and so much fun to listen to! Thank you Battersby's for helping make my class a fun place to learn!!!

Sunny Days.A wonderful album
PreS-Gr 3–Former elementary school teachers and award-winning performers, Tim and Laura (The Battersby Duo), present 11 fun songs. Their voices harmonize beautifully together, and in places their sound is similar to that of Peter, Paul & Mary, as they utilize various styles of folk, rock, and country music. They are joined by some excellent musicians who perform on piano, bass, guitar, pedal steel guitar, dobro, fiddle, mandolin, violin, and drums. “Sunny Days” reminisces about family camping vacations at the beach. “Rhythm of the Sway” is a participatory dance tune. “Flat Screen Daddy” boasts about his 60-inch, wall-mounted flat screen. In “Hey Seuss: A Treebute,” Tim uses a gravelly voice and English accent to extol the many wonderful books that Dr. Seuss wrote. Other songs include “Bubbles of Fun,” “Precious Friend,” “It’s a Brilliant Day,” “How About Dessert?” “Here I Come,” “Shanny’s Song,” and “It’s Smart to Be Smart.” A wonderful album that will appeal to both children and adults.–Beverly Wrigglesworth, San Antonio Public Library, TX
