We’ve always been a get-together kind of couple.
We lived in a house long before most of our friends did- with a yard perfect for BBQ and a comfortable couch for that friend to sleep over on.
Well, we’re older, have a new house we call all of our own, a child, and… we still love to throw a party.
Having friends over these days usually means that, even though the Cokes are spiked there are now little ones running around now.
One of the albums on my party playlist is now Melissa Green’s “Sing Loud”, an eclectic mix written for children and adults to enjoy. And everyone does- it walks the line between kids music and adult music so perfectly no one would know it was meant as a children’s album.
Many of the songs are inspired by the same music I listen to -from Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” making an appearance to a cover of the Go-Go’s “We Got The Beat”.
Hanging out with Melissa on her fourth album album is Brooke Shields, making her kids music debut with “4 Nickels and a Dime” and “We Got The Beat”.
This album fits in with all of the other music I listen to so much I threw it on for myself when my son wasn’t in the car.
The title track “Sing Loud” is an empowering piece that is perfect for a drive with the windows down whether you headed to swim class, the beach or the grocery store. It’s great for that one jam that plays over and over all summer and leaves its mark in your memory.
Green also teaches music in the Los Angeles area, including private in-home group classes.
I was given a CD to review for this blog post. No other compensation was given.
