Love this CD. Music is great for children and adults as well. I enjoyed listening to it even without the grandkids around. Mellow and entertaining. One of my favorite children’s music CDs wonderful rhythm, lyrics and vocals. Let’s your imagination run with vivid imagery. Delightful. Love Frances England’s style.
“England has a truly original sound, marrying lo-fi indie rock with simple lyrics that speak to both preschoolers and young grade-schoolers.” — Real Simple magazine
SAN FRANCISCO – The long wait is over! Award-winning, San Francisco-based family recording artist Frances England looks ahead with pride to the August 6 release of her greatly anticipated, fourth CD for kids and families, Blink of an Eye ($13.99, for ages 5 – 12, run time 28 minutes).
Showcasing eleven Frances England originals and produced by Grammy winner Dean Jones, Blink of an Eye features guest appearances by kindie music luminaries Elizabeth Mitchell, Caspar Babypants, Morgan Taylor (Gustafer Yellowgold), and Molly Ledford (Lunch Money).
Frances England has a gift for capturing the wonders, simple pleasures, and beauty of childhood, and she frames her music in ways that both children and parents can appreciate. In the vein of Simon & Garfunkel or Jack Johnson, the sparkly, acoustic pop songs on Blink of an Eye are both catchy and heartfelt, the kinds of songs that linger in your head long after listening. Indeed, Blink of an Eye is imbued with a subtlety that encourages repeat listening.
As Frances England’s own kids have grown, her songs have followed suit. Frances explains, “Blink of an Eye is very different from my other children’s albums. My boys are growing up, and more and more, they are listening to their own music and deciding for themselves who they like. Bruno Mars, Adam Levine, and Taylor Swift are suddenly played alongside Lunch Money and Caspar Babypants. Blink of an Eye is geared for a slightly older audience than my previous albums and has a quiet pop sensibility about it that I hope both kids and parents will like.”
