ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
True to form, Marla's new EP explores many musical styles and wacky subject matter.

"Back to School," a rock tune, deals with conquering back to school anxiety.
"Cocoa!" has an African flavor and describes how cocoa is made.
For the songs, "Feet, Feet!" and Kalico Kat's Jug Band," Marla brought in The Bluelights, a great jug band from Connecticut. The songs are about the weirdest feet you'll find in the animal kingdom, and the folks that play in a jug band, respectively.
"Jammin" is a jazz tune that'll get the entire family up and swingin!
Finally, "Everybody's Irish on St Patrick's Day" will transport you to the front row at a Saint Patrick's Day parade.

Enjoy!

Susan Salidor, Award-winning children's entertainer/educator

Fabulously rendered songs
These tunes are great!
I love the energy on FEET! with the guy backup singers! It should be in a Disney movie!
Loved Cocoa and Back to School, too. Marla's songwriting, always good, just gets better with time. I really liked her mention of the internet for Cocoa because it's exactly what elementary school children WOULD do. I've never heard it mentioned in a children's song.

Stan Jay, President, Mandolin Brothers, NY

Remarkable!
Great songs, sung flawlessly, arranged to perfection, with musicians who can transport the listener into many different worlds. Well done!

Dave Kinnoin, multi-award-winning songwriter for kids

This will delight you!
First of all, nobody in children’s music sings better than Marla, and her band is great!
She can sing island, Irish, old time jazz, jug band blues, folk, pop—so clear and expressively!
Songs are great, as usual. Marla's ideas are stellar and she executes them like a pro.

Barbara Silberg, a.k.a. Mrs. Music, Director West LA Children's

Mellow, hip, relevant and cool
If I had my way, every newborn would be sent home from the hospital clutching cds by Marla Lewis. She's mellow and hip and relevant and cool. The new songs on the EP are delicious! I love them all but want to play 'Feet Feet' and 'Cocoa' over and over while i dance around the kitchen.
Well done and highly recommended!

Paul Austin Kelly, singer, composer, arranger

Everyone should have this
The songs are terrific, the singing spot on and always in tune and committed, the arrangements and production values are simply the best. There's really very little kids/family music I've heard that competes with it from a quality standpoint. Music of this level for kids should be flying off the shelves!
