Tired of listening to the Chipmunks? I know I am! It’s such a breath of fresh air when you find a cd that both you and your kids enjoy! Frances England is not a household name yet….but she should be…and I’m sure she will be soon!
A little about Frances England. She has an amazing story! Frances never intended to be a professional musician. In 2006 she recorded an album as a fundraiser for her son’s preschool and never imagined that anyone outside her own circle of family and friends would ever hear it. Well…people heard it and loved it! Her debut album, Fascinating Creatures went on to be named the sole winner of the 2007 Oppenheim Platinum Music Award. In 2008 she released her second album, Family Tree, which has received many awards and honors as well.
Good news for us mommies out there….She just released her 3rd album last week! Mind of My Own was released November 9th and it is such a cute cd. I put it in my cd player a few weeks ago and it still has yet to be taken out! If the kids are in the car, it’s on….and I’ll be honest…I catch myself singing along sometimes even when they aren’t in the car with me!
She has kind of an “indie folk pop rock” feel and is just fun to listen to! You can read more about her here. Or purchase a cd or download here or here. And of course….you can always find her on itunes!
