ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1. Baby That’s Not All--- by singer-songwriter Josh Ritter. When I asked a new mother what she plays for her baby at night, she surprised me by saying that this was her favorite lullaby. It opened my mind to the world of songs other than traditional lullabies that sooth both children and adults.

2. My Darling---by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and Jay Bennett. My son Jesse played me this song and I fell in love with the lively melody and the simple truth of the lyrics. “ Please don’t grow up too fast” is something every parent can relate to!

3. Dreaming Sweet Dreams--- For the last few years I’ve had the opportunity to study songwriting with Grammy winner Hugh Prestwood. When I started this project, Hugh said that he had a bedtime song that had never been recorded. It’s my honor to sing one of the most beautiful melodies I’ve ever heard.

4. Lullaby---The Dixie Chicks wrote this lullaby for all their children. It captures the essence of loving: is forever enough? Take a look at their beautiful YouTube version of the song with pictures of family.

5. Welcome Home To Love---I wrote this song for my granddaughter Annalise Sarai, remembering the magical experience of seeing my own baby girl for the first time and feeling like we’d known each other forever.

6. Midnight Lullaby---from Tom Waits’ album “Closing Time,” a collection of mellow songs that all feel like midnight. It became the title track of the album because so many lullabies are sung, sweetly or desperately, at midnight.

7. The Sweetest Gift---Sade wrote this song for her daughter. We had already started recording when Diane Gayden, who has an incredible ear for what works, said, “I have a song you HAVE to do.” She was right. It’s pure poetry.

8. La Moora--- When I asked Donovan Leitch if I could include one of my favorite songs, “Wear Your Love Like Heaven,” on my lullaby CD, and he said, “No, I have a better lullaby for you.” La Moora is a Scottish nonsense word used in lullabies for soothing. The mermaid image was too beautiful to ignore, so I invited a chorus of mermaids to join in.

9. Whisper Warm --Singing to a baby creates a different feeling than any other kind of singing. No matter what words are whispered at that moment of connection, the warmth of love is there too. This is my expression of that feeling.

10. Forever Young---Bob Dylan has written one of the most perfect songs of all time. I have sung it for hundreds of occasions throughout the years. We slowed it down here to lullaby tempo, to let the meaning of the words really come through.

11. Goodnight/Golden Slumbers---By now a classic lullaby, the Beatles’ “Goodnight” is a blend of childhood poetry and lovely melody. The middle section of “Golden Slumbers” just seemed to want to sneak in, so we let it.


“Midnight Lullaby” was recorded and produced in Nashville with Grammy-award winning songwriter (“Everlasting Love”), producer, and guitarist Mac Gayden. The musicians were Nashville’s best, and I feel fortunate to have had this chance to work with them at turning my ideas into music.

Midnight Lullaby
As a mother of a 6 month old, getting a baby to go down at night is not easy. This CD has the perfect lullabies as you rock your baby to sleep. The only problem is the songs make you want to hold your baby tight and never let go. It's something different than your traditional lullabies - just a wonderful blend of music and soothing vocals. Wonderful idea for a baby gift.

Remembering Bedtime
I have been listening to this CD for a few weeks now and I have to say - it is so beautiful and soothing. I always sang to my kids at bedtime when they were young and whether they remember that or not I don't know, but *I* remember. I wish I'd known these songs back then - every night would have been special. I especially like "Baby, That's Not All" and "La Moora" and really the whole CD. The lyrics on "Welcome Home to Love" are so special - Jane is a great songwriter.
