More Story Songs & Sing Alongs includes Debbie and Friends' sunny sound with sophisticated pop musical arrangements, including “Simon Says” and “I Think I Can” along with a bonus dance mix of their hit song “Little Red.” Kids will also delight in the goofy word play of “Rosie Wrong Rhyme,” “Home Run Ronnie” and “Wendell,” a cumulative movement song that will get kids up and on their feet. Sesame Street’s legendary music teacher Bob McGrath, joins Debbie for the sweet good-bye song “Until Next Time.”
The warm public reception and critical acclaim for the first CD convinced Debbie to continue writing and recording new songs over the past two years. Story Songs & Sing Alongs won awards from Parents’ Choice, the iParenting Media, National Parenting Center, Mr. Dad, Creative Child Magazine, the Great American Song Contest and the Dove Family Foundation.
As FamilyManOnline noted about the first CD, “Using a pop music spin that revolves at a pace just right for pre- and elementary-school ears, she offers upbeat songs that boost young egos, teach key concepts and promote laughter.”
In addition to her busy school and performing schedule, Debbie maintains a blog, Kids Music Matters, with regularly updated band and industry news.
As Debbie explains, “I believe that music for children is all about music with children. All of these new songs are kid-tested and approved. We hope the enthusiasm of a live concert comes shining through.”
“Sweet, upbeat, classic kids’ songs that are fun to sing along to and bring new twists to your favorite children’s stories.”
– Boston Children’s Music
“It’s all strong melodies and rich harmonies. The lyrics give us the kid content, but the music is all grown up.”
– Today’s Parent
“An enchantingly upbeat personality that permeates everything she does...”
– FamilyManOnline CD of the Month April 2010
“A warm, energetic and charismatic children’s entertainer...child-friendly pop music featuring Cavalier's sweet-timbered voice and clearly articulated lyrics, backed up with spot-on vocals and well-orchestrated instrumentals.”
“If (my kids’) little happy faces and giggles aren't convincing enough that they love this CD, then I don't know what would be.”
