Finally it's here! Rainbow Songs' very first and highly anticipated record "Oh Baby!" seamlessly brings together a collection of bluegrass, soul, rock and traditional children's songs to soothe and entertain adults and babies alike. The record was produced under the watchful eye of Mike Whitla, Rainbow Songs founder and recording artist in his own right with previous recordings having won a 2006 Indie Music award as well as NAPPA and Parent's Choice awards. "Oh Baby!" his latest project released under the Rainbow Songs moniker, contains a mixture of original and traditional pieces written and arranged by Whitla. Also featured on the recording are strong musical contributions from Rainbow Songs veterans Jessica Vigars, Josh Engels and Kristina Uranowski as well as bluegrass heavyweights Ivan Rosenberg on dobro and Chris Coole on banjo.
The songs and arrangements on "Oh Baby!" demonstrate a dedication to bringing the best in music to family music. Says Whitla, "I think children deserve our best efforts as musicians. They don't need to be played down to." The recording includes Rainbow Songs original tunes "Hands Together, Hands Apart" and "The Tickle Song" in addition to fresh interpretations of classic favourites like The Grand Old Duke of York, Frere Jacques and Woody Guthrie's "Cleano".
CHORDS FOR THE SONGS ARE INCLUDED IN THE LINER NOTES
